Project Planning Mistakes to Avoid

  • Doing Everything Yourself- One project planning mistake that we see a lot, especially when it comes to things like moving or reorganizing your home, is trying to do everything yourself. Not only will you save yourself a great deal of stress by enlisting others to help you and using professional support services when called for, but you will also enjoy better final results. In light of this, don’t hesitate to reach out to our team.
  • Underestimating Time and Budget- Another project planning mistake that many people make is underestimating how long their project will take or how much it will cost (usually both). To avoid this, it’s wise to consult with professionals who have done similar projects in the past–for instance, our team can give you a more realistic idea of how much time and money it will take to reorganize your entire home (as well as provide suggestions and support to keep the costs low and the timeline short).
  • Communicating Badly- A third mistake that many people make when it comes to project planning is not communicating clearly with the others on their team. For Instance, if you are planning to move, then you, your partner, and your other housemates or helpers need take the time to get on the same page in regard to your timeline, what stays and what goes, etc.
