Placing Stones

stone path by Joy Weese MollA key to successfully implementing a project is to set small expecatations. I know that. But apparently I didn’t want to remember that when I started this blog.

When setting expectations, imagine each expectation as a stone. If I place them down one at a time, I can create a path. But if I place  several down at once, I create a bunch of little piles that keep me from getting where I need to go (at least efficiently and comfortably). In setting the expectation that I would post three times a week, I created an obstacle course for myself: I get past all three, or none.

So I’m taking apart my piles and adjusting my expectation: I will post once a week. If I happen to have room for a few extra stones, I’ll put those down one at a time, too.

How about you? Are you creating paths or obstacle courses?

PROjects or proJECTS

PROjects are nouns: they’re tasks, undertakings, they have a beginning and an end.

proJECTS is a verb: to cast forward, contemplate, communicate clearly.

So which one is it in ‘pointC projects’?

Well, it’s both. Through this blog, I’ll share tips and thoughts to help enhance your projects and tasks, and take them further than just their end. But I also hope that by doing so, your work is projected forward – to new ideas, conversations, collaborations, and success.

So here’s to future pointC projects and the hope that pointC projects.
