With any undertaking focus and execution are the keys to success.  Knowing what to do is as important as the actual doing.

Project can become sidetracked by tangent undertakings.  For instance, in a content management project it would be easy to get off task by focusing too much energy on granularity of contributors.

A successful content management project will consider age, subject expertise, and format as broad spectrum policy decisions.  Knowing that John Y. Smith has a tendency to save post-it thoughts in the DMS should be placed in the exception file and dealt with later.

Maintaining your focus on the end goal and executing the policy and plans you have developed will lead to success.  So if you are undertaking any type of project remember focus and execution will feed you with energy and success will duplicate itself.
