Great article. A lot of good ideas here. I started conducting a monthly “project management review” of my life a few years ago. I review my progress against annual goals and make adjustments. This process has helped me deal with the chaos monkey in a more deliberate way. I used to ignore the chaos monkey, and he kicked my ass on a regular basis. I am still learning how to become a hydra, but feel like I am making progress.
Thanks for sharing your thoughts and perspective.
