The Secret To Tackling - And Finishing - Huge Business Projects

That big project is looming; it's threatening to gobble up all your work time and afterhours time too. You can't see past it to the weekend or any other activity because it's so huge it casts a shadow over everything else. But it's very size is what keeps you from even getting started. You can't imagine that taking a little chunk out of its ear will ever lead to conquering the whole beast. So how do you move forward?
Everyone has a version of this project. For a copywriter like me, it may be an article I need to write from a two-hour interview. Or it might be a 20 page website. For business owners or executives, it could be an important presentation for the annual sales meeting. Regardless of the project, when it seems so big it darkens every hour of your week, you need a way to attack it piece by piece.
I'm about to suggest something that hard-working business folks may find appalling at first. Ready? Take a break every 45 minutes. Instead of seeing your project time as a 50-hour stretch with no lunch breaks, look at your work time as one-hour bite size pieces. For three quarters of an hour, you focus solely on the beast. Turn off email alerts and put your phone on mute. When you feel like pulling your hair out but you find you only have ten more minutes in your work chunk, it will actually be easier to continue.
But then, at minute 45, you must stand up and walk away from your desk. For the next 15 minutes find something else to do with your body. Not email, not a phone call, not Facebook. Take a walk. If you have a private office, do those back exercises your doctor has been hounding you to do. If you work from home, take your dog for a walk or do last night's dishes. But you must get your body moving.
Why the sudden focus on the body? Because the human mind works in incredible ways. Letting your conscious mind focus on the physical task in front of you allows your unconscious mind to work on the beast. You're giving your brain time to breathe - like tomato sauce simmering on a stove. When you sit back down for the next hour unit, you might be surprised at all the great ideas that pop up. Then you've got a clear path for the next 45 minutes.
With this hour unit approach, those 50 hours are manageable. You know you have a 15-minute break to look forward to every hour. You know your mind is still doing the work during the break. And, most importantly, you'll see the beast get smaller and smaller every 60 minutes.
As a copywriter, I work on lengthy writing projects all the time and I use this approach weekly. Those 15-minute breaks have actually saved me time in the long run because I procrastinate less. But you don't have to be a copywriter in order to benefit from this process. If you're a business owner or executive, I encourage you to try this approach for your next big project. You just might find the beast isn't as big as it seems.
