Create Project Boundaries

Do you find your projects getting bigger and bigger?

Is scope creep more than a concept to you and more like a way of life?

I call it the "wouldn't it be cool syndrome." Our bosses do it to us, our clients do it to us, our customers do it to us, our team members do it to us, but most of all we do it to ourselves -- we let our boundaries disappear and work expand endlessly.

Do you know what that leads to? Unfinished work. That's not what you probably want.

While your job might be without boundaries, your projects need them.

And guess what -- if you don't set them and enforce them, why would anyone else?

Centered leaders, high performance leaders create project boundaries. Shouldn't you?

-- Douglas Brent Smith
