Using The System

The PPC is a planning system designed for creative people whose minds wander in the middle of important projects or who always need to rethink steps for a project that will be done repetitively. I often find myself in a crazy situation in the middle of a project because people whom I assign tasks don't fully understand them or waste a lot of time thinking about what to do because there’s no guide or system in place.

This system wants to be a guide for anyone who wants to stay on track on a project without overthinking it and by saving a lot of brain power that goes with everyday planning for a process that should be systemized.
