It's a new year and a perfect time to do some self reflection, dust off those old habits and make some changes/shift in mindset to go from good to great as a PM.

Naomi -

As per Daniel Pink's latest book, while beginnings and endings are important, the middle is also important to inspecting and adapting. A year is too long to go without course corrections, so let's strive for a more regular retrospective approach.

Naomi,
IT has to do with the projects you working on. For me, gathering accurate and adequate information is very important at this stage.

Yes, many of you are reflecting that why wait until the end or start of the new year. It's either a good place to start or begin any ongoing improvements. Many of you have responded to improvements in project selection, regular ongoing personal reflections, improve data to provide better reporting, being present and awareness of the others we work with.

It's always important to pause, lift your head up and look around. Many times we stay focused on the wrong things for too long. Take a moment of gratitude daily for your achievements and just know that we can all make changes to improve daily.
