First edit complete

Image
This weekend I have managed to complete the first edit of Project Management: The Sketches  Woo hoo, go me. Oh, hang on, I need to calm down a bit, still a lot to do. So why has it taken so long? I remember when I first started I thought 2 or 3 months and that was well over 18 months ago. But hey, no need to beat myself up. I will be pushing copies out to beta readers soon and continue to work on the formatting and covers. If you fancy being a beta reader, get in touch.

The Sketches : First draft completed! Hurrah!

Image
That's a big step forward ticking off that milestone.  Had to make a couple of decisions to bite the bullet and remove some items and keep them for a later date, killing my darlings.  Stopped myself including some last minute bright ideas too, though one or two got through. Now there is just the little task of editing, formatting for the ebook, formatting for the printed edition, cover design for the ebook, cover design for printed, deciding on the pricing, advertising, proofing the copies, wider distribution strategy.............Not much then. In other news I pushed out a survey request about what project management tools are overrated and underrated.  Take a look here an give me your thoughts.

How to motivate oneself

Now I have not done a lot so far, but ideas continue to flow and my notes are increasing. I have found that alternative ideas spring to mind and have gone back to a couple of my other book ideas and done some work on those. So I am thinking that the only I can get myself going is to set my self some task related goals and rewards. So number 1 is that I will write in my blog at least once per week, be it about the book or about project management in general. So this week I thought I would share a couple of sites which you may find of interest if you are interested in project management. Firstly an author in the UK who launched his book last year and has been getting good reviews and seems to be on every PM related podcast around the world. Peter Taylor has published the book the Lazy Project Manager which takes a slightly different approach to thinking about the priorities of managing projects you can find out more at www.thelazyprojectmanager.com Secondly the podcast where I fi

The embryo of an idea

So I thought I would share how this idea came about and it evolved. I had been thinking of article ideas to help me practice for writing my other book and to get some feedback on my style. To get some additional benefit I thought I would target the content at project management which, if published, would allow me to claim it as a continued professional development activity and assist in keeping my PMI qualification (more information can be found here http://www.pmi.org.uk/ ) So while on a caravan holiday in a lovely South Wales site in Wiseman's Bridge I started putting down my ideas using a mindmap, and thought I would have the makings of a reasonable article. The thing was as I sat there with a bunch of coloured pencils and a pad the ideas start to run and the gallop and in front of me was more than enough material for an article and then I thouught could this be a book. Since then I had not done anything much with it or my other books until I read Peter Taylors book thelazy
