Ok, maybe you’ve taken
some of the earlier courses on managing check-lists, or maybe not. In this
section the Center builds on the check listing skill set. You learn:
How to block time
for the things you want to do,
check-lists for the time blocks
You also learn to work
with others using a project plan. Check-lists can become the beginning of a
project plan, but there’s more to a project. Estimating is a big piece of
projects. Finishing a project is a great feeling.
Some of my projects
include rebuilding a Jeep, creating a small fruit tree orchard in the back
yard, and building a bookshelf. But others weren’t so big. Just getting the grade you want in school
classes may require a project. Parties, campouts, or fishing trips are all so
examples of projects.
As a family member, I like
contributing, and even managing some of our family projects. When our family
started using projects, even things like cleaning the garage became more fun.
Collaboration is a big
part of projects, and discovering that when I was late, it made my brother late
too helped me appreciate my role as a project team member. I discovered things
to talk with my Dad about, and everything just went better.
feeling that I’m in control of my life. I will always use project planning. You
want to do something fun, something amazing…something you can be proud of? Then plan on it.
