Why Projects are Like War: Quite Easy to Start and Almost Impossible to Finish

In this episode, Ricardo explores the difficulty in completing projects, highlighting three leading causes. First, anxiety causes you to start more projects than you can finish, resulting in a backlog of work. Second, planning based on ideal conditions leads to underestimating the actual complexity of the work, which causes delays. Third, a lack of awareness about the underlying nature of the change results in changes that distort the essence of the project. Ricardo emphasizes the importance of controlling anxiety, planning realistically, and avoiding changes compromising the project's DNA.
