No new project without project template

I have a propensity to come up with new project ideas, get really excited about them – and never make them reality. That is why I have taken on a new habit: Whenever I have an idea and start getting excited, I first have to fill out my project template.

It consists of a few questions that ask about my motivation, expectations and planned time that I want to (and can) spend on the project:

More often than not, after filling out the template, I will come to the conclusion that my excitement is just temporary and that the (expected) downsides outweigh the expected upsides.

Did this help you?
