If you want to be a good PM then there are certain good rules that you must follow to be one. First of all if your company has its own project management techniques then follow it effectively, if not, read upon the latest advancements and choose the management technique that has been tried and successful in similar projects like the one you are working on. It is better that you have a person as your mentor who will be able to guide you in tricky situations, it is not weak to ask for help, on the other hand it is really beneficial to your project and your team. You should make ready every element like the necessary software systems ready so as to make your work better. You must not go in search of these elements when you are concentrating on the project. Templates can be useful too if you have already worked on such projects.
A project manager is a really high post where many people suffer because of the lack of leadership skills and also because they have a very bad team who will not listen to one word they are saying. PMs also have another problem, bosses who think they are superior and do not consider the PM or the project experts. In such cases the project management becomes weak and this leads to the failure of the project. In other cases when there is a good PM he will think of new ways to make his way with his team and also deal with the bosses in such a way which is beneficial for both of them. Being a PM comes with a very high social responsibility and it also comes with a level of dignity and respect among the team members. The leadership skills of a good PM spreads in the market like wildfire and his market value is constantly on the rise giving him a competitive edge over other competitors.
Create a plan that will be better for your project. This plan must be creative and also efficient in the same way. If you are making a plan it must not be superficial make it to believable terms. The next step is to communicate your plan to the stakeholders of the project like the clients, government, the management etc. Once these stakeholders give their consent for the project your job as the PM is to carefully manage and track the progress of the project. In case there is any problem in the project it should be reported to the project management immediately.

The final and the most important thing is deliver the project on time and also just the way they like it.
