The Big Time

by
Managing any project successfully is all about Team Work combined with years of Accrued Expertise. It is an asset to have an educational background that compliments your field of expertise but "education" without "experience" is like an "arrow" without a "bow." You can never make a perfect shot with a temporary arrow unless you have a permanent bow called: "Life's Experience." Remember, you can never teach experience but you can always teach from experience.

Appreciation makes you feel Great !

I would like to thank the Project Management Institute for this great appreciation certificate. 

It feels great to be appreciated and I always am proud to be part of this community and contribute / volunteer as much as I can.

Studies show that a person's greatest emotional need is to feel appreciated and I absolutely believe in this.

PM Community & Networking

This project management community has proven to be a great community in many ways, not only education & knowledge sharing wise but also in terms of Networking. 

I've met so many people in person through this community, I interacted with a lot virtually and learned a lot from others. One good recent example is the "Haiku for Project Managers" by Robert Prol.

Robert took project management to another level by defining "The Big Picture" in a few words that are full of deep meanings, rich in experience and in many cases are full of humor. This unique balance between all the latter is great. I did not know what Haiku's were until Robert introduced this form of poetry to me. By time, I became a big fan of his Haiku and he in fact guided me how to write them. 

Robert published his first book recently "Haiku for Project Managers" and included words of praise from some of his colleagues in this community on the rear cover page and it was my pleasure to be one of those contributors. 

This is an example of what makes this community a great one. You contribute, you help, you learn, you network, you meet people, they motive you and you motivate them.

Thanks for your efforts Robert and congratulations for your new book. 

Always Remember: You won't understand the abashed power of a community until you're a part of one.

Attitude: Coincidence or Not !

 

                        

 

Attitude is the most important value on a Personal Level, Social Level and in Project Management as well. If you do not have the right attitude, you will encounter endless issues with the different stakeholders involved in your project which will definitely reflect negatively on the project. 

Even if you have the knowledge and you are hardworking, your achievements can never reach 100% without the right attitude and below is a simple mathematical proof:

 

IF:               A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z

EQUALS:    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26

Then:

KNOWLEDGE = 11+14+15+23+12+5+4+7+5 = 96%

HARDWORK = 8+1+18+4+23+15+18+11 = 98%

ATTITUDE = 1+20+20+9+20+21+4+5 = 100%

Is this a Coincidence or Not ..... Who Knows ! 

 

Always Remember: "Bad Attitude is like a Flat Tire, if you don't change it, you'll never go anywhere !"

Team Work Success !

 

       

Successful team work plays a pivotal role and contributes significantly towards the success of any project. Henry Ford describes the steps to achieve team work success in a simple quote: 

 

                  "Coming Together is a Beginning

                                      Keeping Together is Progress 

                                                     Working Together is Success"

 

Always Remember: TEAM = Together Everyone Achieves More !

EGO: The Enemy of Success !

Ego is one of the things that might reflect negatively on your team especially if it is excessive so if you are a manager who has high ego, then you need to work on keeping it at very low levels. 

To be a true leader you have to remove the  "E" and let it "GO". 

Always Remember: "I" is the smallest word in the Dictionary, don't make it the biggest in your Vocabulary!
