Become the Project Manager of Your Life in 2018
How are you feeling about the rest of this year ahead? Are you ready for fresh, clean-slate outlook?
How about making 2018 the year you become the Project Manager of your life?
Take a deep breath, set your intentions and step out of any old grooves that aren’t serving you. If something hasn’t been working for you in 2017, open your mind to a fresh approach.
The energy you put in will show up in your life in many wonderful ways. BIG things are possible for you once you find your focus and put your mind to it.
It was over 10 years ago that I got an idea to use a ring binder folder with colour-coded tabbed sections for each area of my life. I loaded it up with blank, lined paper as if I was all ready for some kind of hugely important project. I had no idea what I was doing, but I felt excited about it anyway.
I figured it was like managing a house renovation with separate sections for plumbing, electricity, interior design and outdoor landscaping. My life needed sorting out in all areas, so I broke it down into Love, Family, Health, Personal Growth, Fun, Money, Work and Productivity. Having it all in one place helped me to feel like a Project Manager. I used my folder to start collecting ideas for how to build my dream life. Once I got organised, things began to improve quickly. This was the birth of Project Me!
Here are some small-step actions to help you become the Project Manager of your life.
★ Use the Project Me Life Wheel® tool to reflect on your 8 Key Life Areas. What’s working? What’s not? Use a journal or notebook to write down ideas to improve things.
★ Use an Ideas Into Action sheet to break your ideas down into step-by-step actions so you can get moving on them straight away.
★ Schedule in a monthly Hot Date With Yourself to re-do your Life Wheel and track your progress. Create a Project Me folder to hold all of your action sheets and completed life wheels. Consistency is is the key to success, but it’s not all-or-nothing. If you do miss a month, jump back in again.
★ Team up with a friend for accountability. But if this isn’t possible yet, don’t let that be an excuse for not getting started on your own.
★ Get a hold of my book Project Me for Busy Mothers: A Practical Guide to Finding a Happier Balance. It’s designed to guide you through how to solve any challenges that may try to throw you off course. It’s also filled with my treasure trove of tried and tested resources.
Becoming the Project Manager of your life is empowering. It means getting proactive about your own happiness and wellbeing. Won’t it feel amazing to reflect back a year from now and feel proud of what you’ve accomplished?
I’ve commissioned the wonderful cartoonist Ralph Lazar of Lastlemon.com to create a Happiness Is… especially for us!
Taking charge of your life doesn’t mean being a control freak, nor is it about perfection. It’s about freeing yourself up to enjoy the journey.
Use Project Me as a tool to get off the starting blocks. Set those all-important positive intentions. You have to know what you’re aiming for – and don’t be afraid to aim high! Keep those visions alive by actively working on your Project Me and you’ll be amazed by what you’ll achieve in the year ahead.
