I am incredibly behind planning what I want to accomplish in 2008! How about you?
I truly believe it is important to be intentional about how you approach your life. Holidays and personal things can distract us and we end up in REACTIVE mode instead of taking the time to make a 2008 project plan! I really should use my PM skills in my life and not just keep them at work.
If you are like me and have not spent the time planning 2008 yet, I found some great articles that are spurring me into action. I hope they inspire you as well.
Isaac Tolpin talks about How an Extraordinary Year Happens. If his comment about reading 30 books by years end doesn’t make you want to “up your game” I do not know what else will.
Karthik Gurumurthy discusses a Mission Statement. This is such a great idea to incorporate into 2008 as a way to live with purpose. I will have to make one for myself. It will be hard to top Karthik’s “To have a positive, profound effect on as many people as possible.”
We have six days to plan for the year we want! Sure there will be some progressive elaboration in 2008, but at least we can know the scope of what we will accomplish!
