No tip is too small if it is actually helpful. In a post at the Project Risk Coach, Harry Hall recommends the small tip of maintaining a project journal. Journaling offers you the power to take a step back to gain perspective and clarity on otherwise stuffy, complicated issues. Journaling also offers you the opportunity to reflect on lessons learned, and to decide what and what not to do moving forward.
Maintaining a journal does not have to be a big time investment. Hall says he reserves journaling for his complex projects, and when he writes, it is only for 5-8 minutes 2-3 times a week. If it only takes that long to invite some new insight into your project, what do you have to lose from trying it out?
