A New Look at Project Management

by Jun 10, 2021Success

Today’s blog is an experiment of sorts. 

Rather than a long theory about project management, we’d like to share 2 short videos to help you manage your never-ending project list and keep your sanity. 

Most people feel like Lucy in this video: 


A much healthier way to look at your project list is this (notice how all of the bags face the same direction): 


Which one feels better? Which one is more relaxing? Which one would totally decrease your stress level? 

Let’s take an example. If you don’t complete a project over the weekend (painting a room, writing a blog, watching a webinar), and you know you won’t have time during the work week, relax! 

Leave your project on your “conveyer belt.” It will magically reappear next weekend. 

Now, this is not an encouragement to procrastinate to the point of missing deadlines. 

This is merely to help you realize that sometimes, it’s OK to postpone a project. 

Does that make you feel a bit lighter and breathe a bit better? 

You’re welcome 🙂
