Avoid big objectives, no matter what type of project you are working on, they are the best ways to give up and can create an infinite source of problems and frustration.

Be ambitious but develop your project by small step. For example, give yourself or to your team objectives that take only up to 1 week to do, once done go to the next goal, iterate until you reach your objective.
