Traditionally, I don’t see myself as a project guy, but 2010 was not a great year numbers-wise. Taking on this project gave me an opportunity to make up some ground on those pesky financial goals of mine.
Now that I’m in the aftermath of a project that I ate, slept and breathed for weeks, I’ve started to reflect on some lessons I learned. Over the course of this week, I’ll share those lessons with you.
Tomorrow I will post the first of my four lessons learned. Here’s what you have to look forward to:
- Always make time for process – Everything is a rush but process can help you survive.
- One point of contact – This is project 101, but it can be difficult with larger companies.
- Know your resets – Don’t fall into bad habits.
- Sometimes you have to suck it up – Not every project will be dreamy and sometimes that’s okay.
Stick with me as we relive some of my favorite and not so favorite moments from the last few months.
But before I get started on my own trip down memory lane, I’d like to know this: What was the biggest lesson you learned from a large project?
