One Thing at a Time

Programs are really complex and, at times, can be overwhelming with so many things going on at the same time..

  • Planning and estimating new work
  • Tracking hundreds of activities and milestones
  • Loads of action items, issues and risks
  • Resource challenges
  • Administrative updates for the limitless organizations that have forms, processes, reports and tools required (why are there so many?)


Trying to manage all of these things can lead anyone to a nervous breakdown (espcially when combined with family obligations, child activities, home problemts, etc). So really the only thing we can do (beside rocking in the corner in fetal position sucking our thumb for comfort) is to make lists of the items and then attack them one at a time.

Making a list is the first step because it captures all of the items requiring attention and allows for us to see them all and prioritize between them. Then we can take them on ourselves or by assigning other people to them.

So whenever you start feeling overwhelmed just remember that simple advise to take things “one at a time.”
