To often we all fall into the trap of attributing success or failure based on the number of hours we have devoted to a project. We view it as our ‘investment’ in the project. This is just wrong. The hours put into a project are irrelevant. All that matters is ‘if you got it done’.
When you start your next project/program and feel mired in the morass of managing it, focus on what it takes to achieve the desired results.. NOTHING ELSE.
