This Is How I Decide Which Projects To Pursue

“I look for projects — or ways to frame projects — that ensure even if they tank I’ll still get value out of them.”

I’ve got way more things I want to do than I’ve got time to do them so I’ve had to develop a system to figure out what to focus on.

In this free sample issue of my This Is How I Do It newsletter, I share the system I use to decide which projects to pursue including how I consider what failure might cost me, take on projects that are guaranteed to succeed even if they fail, and make sure if something new comes on, something else goes off.
