How To Break Down A Project Into Tasks
To make sure you make the most of your subscription, and you don’t end up having to pay more for me to complete a project, the simplest approach is to break your project down into a number of tasks.
You do this by taking a simple approach.
A task should be based on one skill set
Each task should required one skill set. For example, if you submit a task to develop an opt-in form and embed it onto a WordPress page, this requires two skill sets. The form builder (Gravity forms for example) and WordPress. I would send this back suggesting it be submitted as two tasks. Develop a form and Embed it onto a web page.
The level of complexity
I see this all the time. ‘Tasks’ that cause confusion, frustration, mistakes and delays.
Keeping a task simple is a simple as having one outcome. An outcome could be to create one thing or change one thing. This means a task is created quickly, with no confustion, no errors and no back and forth.
I would much rather you submit several small simple tasks, say 15 minutes to complete, than a ‘task’ squeezed into 1 hour that is confusing, isn’t clear, and need further clarification.
