Logframes and How to get excited about topics that bore you

Who loves logframes? I do not.

Several years ago I was drafting a logframe for a 2,5 million Euro project. I puffed and huffed over it for couple of days. It would not make progress. It was still an empty table. Then I realised that disliking it, cost me more. More time, more effort, more energy.

I came across this article these days:

How to Get Excited About Topics that Bore You, by Barbara Oakley,


A useful reading on how to overcome the boredom or the feeling of discomfort towards something that is necessary to be done.

The story of the logframe has a happy ending: the project was approved and successfully implemented. Keeping my mind on the long-term perspective was indeed beneficial.
