I’ve created a monster.
Maybe it’s okay, or maybe it will cause problems. I made a project to write a book. I created a task for all the steps from planning to uploading. There were quite a few that required child actions, which is also okay. It’s comprehensive, but designed this way so that I break down a marathon by sprints.
The problem is that it’s over 72 actions. YIKES! I went back and asked if I need all those steps. I do. Maybe even more.
Seeing ONE project associated with the book rather than three or four feels smaller. Since the project is sequential, I don’t see too much at once - just one project and only a few doable steps at a time. Since I will write more books, I’ve even created a template. This will save time later.
But by adding all these actions, will the project break? Should I divide it into two or three projects? What best practices do you utilize with extremely large projects?
