Difference Between "Normal" and "Project" Activities

Any human activity consists of three components:

the activity continues over time;

activity requires the expenditure of physical and mental strength;

activity as a purposeful process to create the expected result.

When the goal is reached, the task is, of course, completed. Throughout his life, a person repeats work actions many times in different ways. 


For example, a tram driver performs the same actions while driving a tram during working hours. 


This is how his normal working day goes. Within the framework of ordinary activities, a person often repeats in one combination or another the actions familiar to him. 


Through training and advanced training, a person gets the opportunity to expand options for improving the combination of his knowledge and experience in order to achieve more diverse results of his work.

Project activity differs from the "usual" in that the goal is different from the already familiar from the previous activity. 


The goal is determined and it must be achieved by observing the limits (i.e. limits) in time, expenditure of forces and in an unknown way in advance.

The difference between "ordinary" and project activities can be imagined in the form of a three-vector space of working life.


Individual vectors are determined by the duration of work by time, the costs of physical and mental forces and the purposefulness of labor actions aimed at achieving the expected result. 

Within the space of working life, project activities occupy a limited part of this space. 


The size of this part is associated with the limited possibilities of human activity (limited knowledge and experience), the specified duration of activity on months and in time (time limit for achieving the result) and the cost of human forces.
