On work and being specific

I just had a pretty interesting conversation with Mark regarding work, life and getting things done.

He made me realize that whenever I think I’m being specific in my planning I am actually being very vague. As an example, I am currently working on developing Frivilligcenter Netvirket’s communication strategy. As that’s a relatively broad task I’ve started making daily and weekly to-do lists… only issue is they aren’t really to-do lists, they’re just statements of what I am working on – the communication strategy!

So basically I need to improve my ability to see the smaller tasks that make up the assignment. That’s apparently a lot harder for me than I thought but awareness is the first step.
