Setting of the workshop:
Without a clear plan, one hopes for the best.
- You hope you properly understood what your boss or client wanted.
- Hoping for the best
confronts you unwillingly with pressing deadlines.
- Sometimes the task ahead is not known in all its details; therefore, you tend to underestimate the time required to completion.
Hope, for all the good it brings, is a terrible thing to rely on when you have deadlines to meet. One doesn’t want to hope to get it right, because of the consequences, e.g.:
- lack of direction can cause lack of motivation;
- if a project isn’t explicitly laid out, it’s easy to procrastinate;
- if there’s no clear first step, it makes it hard to know if you’re starting the right way.
