I’ve found success (with large and comprehensive projects) by entraining closely towards specific goals, with a clear vision (and realistic calendar schedule), of what success will look like. Because there is a known working plan for aviation projects, which are fundamentally designed to achieve expected results, a logical flow can be followed. This logical flow assists in keeping me focused on current project and avoiding distractions.
Within the Goals Section, you see a list of projects sorted in order of priority. Prioritized in the sense of various dependencies that arise in aviation. For example, it makes sense to get the medical out of the way before starting flight training again, towards the BFR (Biennial Flight Review). It would suck to put a bunch of money into flight training, and then do the medical right before solo, and then find there is an issue. As the cockpit is the worst classroom (noisy and all-encompassing) it’s suggested to get the written work (theory) completed before in-cockpit flight training. While there may be an ultimate start date delay, possibly due to finances, there are still projects to work on (for free) – ground school review.
This page will be used to cross-reference blog-posts and other pages for project action support. Another purpose of the Goals Section is to record the completion date of various project deliverables.
In general, the strategy is to follow an end-to-end flow, where some line-items may be worked in parallel.
