4 Simple Steps for Better Circuits
Well begun is half done. To build a better circuit, the most important step is not soldering, drawing a schematic, debugging you circuit, etc., good planning is really crucial. You can drastically reduce the time you need to build electronic projects, and increase your chances of finishing the circuit, if you invest a little bit of time in planning.
4 simple steps to plan your circuit are listed as follows.
1. Idea generation: If you don’t know what you want to make, then browse through a few electronic blogs or search YouTube to find cool ideas. Also check out some of the free schematics websites.
2. Goal setting: Do you know what your goal is? Then write it down on a piece of paper and hang it somewhere where you will see it daily. This way, you will always be reminded of what you are trying to do.
3. The action plan: You decide for yourself what kind of plans you like to develop. For advanced electronic circuit design it is useful to start with a functional block diagram, then write down the main steps involved in finishing your project. With the main steps planned out, you should try to estimate the time you need for each step.
4. Take persistent action: You have created a goal from your idea and an action plan to reach your goal. All that matters now is action. Work persistently with your action plan. Usually it takes a lot more time to finish a project than originally planned. Don’t get discouraged by this. Keep on working until you reach your goal.
