I was under the weather last week, and am finally well enough to think. I still have the raspy voice from coughing all week, but you can’t hear me. Since I worked out this morning, my brain is actually firing on all cylinders.
I signed a contract with Pragmatic Bookshelf for my next book about project portfolio management. This time, they wanted a schedule. I know I write in fits and spurts, so I was stumped. But I decided to take my own advice. I have a plan to timebox the writing in chunks, and I gave myself quarterly goals of a certain number of pages. Writing that number of pages isn’t a problem–writing that number of good pages might be a problem. I’ll be trying things out on you, I’m sure.
If you’re not sure the world needs a book on project portfolio management, take a look at Raven’s Project Management Cartoon from Project: Humor – Water Me. Sad, but too true.
