During the intense concentration time of any project there are a few key things to keep in mind.
One: Make sure you have a good team around you; a support system is key.
Two: Focus on the tasks in a disciplined manner; doggedly stay on task.
Three: Set small clear goals; set yourself up for success.
Four: Speak only what is really happening; refuse to tell stories.
Five: Take care of yourself; lead with your strengths.
