Many of your projects will succeed; but some fail, even important ones that become intensely involving and personally significant.- contains the principles governing effective decision-making and achievement—see
It is then often sensible to give up and try something else: especially when everyone around is critical and confirms your doubts about the chances of success.
However, there are times when you believe the project can and should succeed, even though others do not recognize its value and/or are sceptical about implementation. You are then alone and the odds are against you.
The only hope for making the project succeed against all the odds is to refuse to give up and operate in a way revealed by the framework comprised solely of PH-L2 elements which offer certainty (as explained below).
With this certainty, you can and must take on the role of project leader.
Example: Turn-around specialists need to apply this framework when entering a failed enterprise. A recent example was Steve Jobs return to Apple. It is also activated by those embarking on revolutionary enterprises and the development of disruptive technologies. It is, however, equally applicable to any personal project that has merit but is unconventional or misunderstood. Read the story of how Henry Ford produced his first successful car, the Model A, in Mastery by R. Greene (2012).
More on Life's Necessity: Producing Achievements.
Everyone has substantial endeavours that I call «projects». The overall taxonomic framework for pursuing any project is covered by the framework of endeavour.
If your most important project runs into trouble then you will be unwilling to abandon your project if you deeply believe that you have a good idea. It may be a revolutionary notion: like addressing a new market, or developing a radical scientific hypothesis—and then social opposition and misunderstanding by colleagues is only to be expected. If it is likely you are right, then it is perfectly reasonable to want to push on and ignore well-meaning advice to the contrary. However, you must also believe that you have the know-how to implement your project.
If you do refuse to give up against all the odds, then you need to supplement the usual frameworks for endeavour and achievement, with a framework comprised solely of PH-L2 elements. That alone can give your various efforts the necessary certainty, as explained below.
It is hard to maintain confidence when a project is not making headway and everyone is critical, doubtful, and abandoning it. Without an inner certainty, you will hesitate, your enthusiasm will fluctuate, drive will be lacking, commitment will fail, others will not follow—and then you will certainly never succeed.
Investigations into the Root Projection to Primary Hierarchies suggest that PH-L2 elements (within their ) are constructed under a psychosocial pressure for certainty (probably with a distinct neurophysiological underpinning).
The Tree framework constituted solely out of PH-L2 elements can therefore be expected to be dedicated to the provision of certainty. Being a Root Tree, each level will also retain its usual psychosocial pressures.
Note: The process here assumes that you possess or can access or discover necessary relevant knowledge and can willingly apply genuine know-how i.e. there is a strong link to.
Consideration of the other psychosocial pressures reveals them to be unsatisfactory or insufficient as the principal general drive. Selflessness is not the solution to your failed project: it might have been the cause. Autonomy is not appropriate because projects involve others extensively. Understanding alone is too abstract. Well-being is almost irrelevant: making the project succeed might nearly kill you. Acceptability misses the point. Performance pressures are always important, but giving performance pre-eminence does not deal with social opposition, doubt or failure.
This list is taken directly from analysis of the Root Projection. Further information about the specific items is available via the links.
