“I have two months to deliver.” An execution plan

“I have two months”
“I have seven to eight weeks”
“It takes a village”…but not necessarily a large one
“Two to three small-to-medium-sized tasks per week”
Keep task size small to medium, and therefore realistic
Keep expectations right-sized by being realistic: you won’t deliver upon all tasks
It’s likely that one task cannot be started until another one is completed: “sequencing and dependency”
An example of how I structure small execution teams in other, more kinetic contexts. The model works
Q: how do you eat a whale? A: a bite at a time.
It’s true: you cannot multitask without impairing your own performance
