Day 30: Organize Your Research Projects


On Day 15, we talked about your to-do list. On Day 28, we talked about your research goals. But there’s one missing piece that goes in between: your research projects.

Your goal defines where you want to end up. It is your destination. Your to-do list identifies the very specific actions that you need to do each day. But to get to your goal, you need a project. You need to make that long list of specific tasks, then decide on which ones need to be done, in what order, and on what days. Some tasks can be done tomorrow. Others may have to wait weeks or months, depending on how earlier tasks go, how much time you have on your calendar, what other people (collaborators, repository staff, etc.) do, and when they do it.
