After watching “The Wife,” I was inspired to write this post on “7 Ways to Project Manage Your Life.”
In the movie it was obvious that Joan Castleman, played by Glenn Close, had been making sacrifices so her husband could live out his dream of being a renowned author.
She had convinced herself that she was happy in a supportive role but her actions were eating her up inside. She had been wearing a mask, hiding who she truly was and who she was meant to be.
Are you wearing a mask? Do yo have a plan for your life that brings you joy? Do you need to project manage your life? Here’s how.
7 Ways to Project Manage Your Life
- Decide what you want in life so you can set out on the right path! There is a saying that “If you don’t know where you are going any road will take you there.”
- Visualize your success while doing a Power Pose.
- Determine your strengths and your weaknesses. Ask 3 people you trust to share what they think your strengths and weaknesses are. Then focus on your strengths and enlist support in areas you are weak in.
- Make a plan by asking yourself, what will it take to get from point A to point B. Write the necessary steps/actions down and review them daily.
- Set deadlines to accomplish certain tasks but be patient with yourself because greatness takes time. Try not to be a perfectionist. I am a recovering one! Practice effective time management.
- Be disciplined and focused. This means you can’t binge on Lifetime movies and expect to go far! You must develop good habits and be consistent in practicing them in order to progress.
- Be grateful for every experience; the good, the bad, and the ugly. Know that all experiences can teach you something, therefore, be open to understanding and capitalizing on the lessons.
If you follow these steps to project manage your life, you will become more capable, confident, and productive.
To your success!
