I think its time to give you an idea about the new project I’m working on: Life.
Yeah. Its a biggie. And not something to be taken lightly. It is a project that takes care, planning, learning, mentorship and more.
You see I’m a Project Manager by trade. And after a while of dealng with personal life crisis (You know the little mundane things like home foreclosure, divorce, financial ruin, crazy parents…) I began to think that I needed to take a look at how I approached my life and apply a little of the finesse of how I run my professional life.
That got me thinking. I had not exactly had the results I wanted up until now. What what missing? Sure I had moments of good things…but the consistency was lacking and I was not attracting things into my life that were good for me.
It hit me that I would be way better off if I would project manage my life. So I am going to start a path of truly managing my life, from goals, to fun, to travel, to even my love life. I’m going to think carefully and manage my life the way I would manage my biggest project at work. With care, understanding, flexibility and intelligence. I will minimize risk, and maximize return on investment. I will use the least amount of resources to achieve my goals but spend time and energy when the quality of life dictates it is necessary.
For those of you who can relate, I invite you to come along. I will be documenting my journey and putting together a mentorship program based on what I learn.
In the meantime…think about the areas of your life that can use a little project managing. What areas have you felt lacked direction? Where have you felt lost? Let’s climb on the bandwagon together and choose our outcomes. You only get one life. Let’s rock the shit out of it.
