LIfe Is a Project -- How Are You Managing? (ACE Round Table)

Round Table Discussion

Association for Consulting Expertise

Friday, December 21, 2012

Portland Country Club

     We walk backwards into the future. We enter each day confident it will be pretty much like yesterday, and we expect the same tomorrow.

     Then some traumatic interruption horrifies us, or maybe the accumulation of some acceptable annoyance arrives at critical mass. And everything changes. We can be paralyzed with horror. Maybe driven by impulse into some behavior that makes it all worse.

     More routinely, along our way we gather perceptions of the need or desirability of changing direction, seeking and building new relationships, exploring new possibilities . . . but the needs and bright shiny distractions of the moment occupy our days. We never get to that hilltop we once glimpsed through the busyness of our lives. Motivation sags under the weight of a thousand quick little decisions.

     We coulda been a contendah, but then it’s too late.

     This workshop provides a kit of handy tools for the busy professional to use to establish a balanced personal methodology for managing daily priorities that include appropriate provision for risk and for progress in building a new future.
