The first, and most important aspect of the perfect outline is the pacing. You want to think of the novel's conflict and make sure you work it into the outline early on. Start by outlining an every day scene that your protagonist would experience. From there, ask yourself what he/she/they want more than anything in their world and what could get in the way. Write in the conflict and then write the start to every following paragraph as a new milestone in your book.
Fill out a 4-5 sentence paragraph describing each milestone and TADA! You have an outline. The best thing about this kind of outline is you have goals to write to but you aren't over bearing (there is still space for your novel to grow organically).
Also, by the end of this outline you will have a pretty feel for who your character is as a person (though you can never know too much about your protagonist so writing a separate biography for them before you start writing can only help).
I hope this is intriguing and helps any writers who need it. And if not, best of luck on all your writing endeavors.
