For around a year now, I’ve been thinking about starting a blog about management. I really enjoy studying project management and I’m loving my master’s program, and I feel like I have a lot of ideas to share, but I was lacking focus. A recent lunch with Jeremy Bartley of really inspired me, though. There are a ton of resources written by project managers for other project managers, but what’s really lacking is helpful advice for regular workers, small business owners, and managers who don’t necessarily know all the jargon and particulars of project management. Helpful articles for those audiences would be a real boon.

The more I thought about it, the more excited I became. I love the idea of helping other people do for themselves. While I’m more than happy to be hired as a consultant, my goal is always to help people learn the principles and steps so they don’t need me anymore. If I can help people become self-sufficient, then mission accomplished. And more often than not, this goal leads to me having even more work and getting to do even more advanced and exciting things.

So I began thinking, and building, and writing. I decided to launch early and iterate often, so the site isn’t what I would call “done.” But it’s to a point where I can start sharing content, and I’ll expand and improve as I go.

If you would be so kind, please take a look. Re-share and point other people to the new blog if you think they might be interested. Submit suggestions and requests for articles. And let me know what other resources might be helpful for me as I write and develop. I’m particularly looking for book recommendations and people on Google+ and Twitter who share inspiring and fantastic thoughts.

August 9, 2014

I just discovered CMMI and I’m fascinated by it. Why have I never heard of this before? I don’t know that being a Project Management Geek is better than being a Star Wars Geek, but that’s what I am. I’m buying and reading books about PM in my spare time. I love reading articles about this stuff. […]

Sermon about Injustice

March 24, 2014

On Sunday, March 16th, I preached about the topic of injustice at Springfield Vineyard church. I wish I could transcribe this sermon to share it more widely, but for now the audio will have to suffice. The rough outline is: Vineyard does a good job addressing injustice, but we still need to be talking about these […]
