#6: Mathematical Arguments for Serializing Projects
Let’s talk about math, baby. Let's talk about mathematical arguments for serializing projects.
Projects should be run in serial, not parallel. So, how should you do that? We touch on three relatively bulletproof mathematical arguments for serializing projects.
Listen to our previous episode, Rough Creative Process Rough, here.
(1) Run projects in serial, not parallel.
(2) The ‘Broken Ankle’ Argument.
(3) The Compound Interest Argument.
(4) The Carrying Costs and Context-Switching Argument.
(5) And some non-mathematical arguments:
- The subtly-procrastinating-while-lying to yourself argument
- The Honeymoon window for motivation and momentum
- The “getting good at finishing things” argument
- The “shipping stuff attracts help and luck” argument…
(6) Finishing things, not keeping them moving.
