Fail-Proof Your New Year’s Resolutions

Project Management and New Year's ResolutionsProject management can help you achieve your New Year’s resolutions. I have to admit, however, that I have not been so good for the past seven years.

Pawel Brodzinski’s blog post challenged me to clean up my act. For 2010, I will make the following SMART changes.

  1. Divide multi-year goals into one-year chunks (specific and measurable)
  2. Limit my goals to 12 versus as high as 24 in 2003 (achievable and realistic)
  3. Set interim milestones for each goal (time-constrained)
  4. Stick to the plan

For 2010, I will take a French course, become a master scuba diver, run my fifth marathon, earn the PgMP, publish three books, produce Chief Scout Award recipients, visit Western Canada with my family, max out our RRSPs, contribute to my children’s RESPs, reposition Agilitek, license an intellectual property and consult/speak in another country.
