Time Task Scheduling


  • To get on with the tactical phase of making your idea happen.


DECIDE how many and what kind of tasks are involved in performing the selected idea requirements. You generally answer the question: What are all the steps that must be taken in order to complete this task? This should probably include even the smallest tasks.

DETERMINE THE AMOUNT OF TIME available for the overall project.

ASSIGN, in the most reasonable way you can, portions of the total time to each of the small tasks.

PREPARE A GRAPH that shows the relationship of your time to the tasks – e.g. a calendar.

The TIME-­‐TASK graph can guide you through the implementation phase.


  • Convince yourself about the logic of the process.
  • Get the idea to help it help itself.
  • Get others behind the idea.
