The first thing that happened when you started working for a workday project manager is you found out that there is a difference between you working for yourself and working for the project. I like to say that there are three levels of self-awareness. The first level is just the same as the first level of self-awareness you’ve ever had. You’re still in the same place, you’re still doing the same things.
The second level, however, is the level where you know youre doing the same things, but you don’t have an awareness of what you’re doing. We all know that making a decision is the same thing that we do when we do a work day project manager. But the fact that we’re doing it without a sense of awareness makes it difficult.
To give you an example, imagine you are in the middle of a project. Youve just sat down at your desk to work on a project and suddenly the project manager comes in and tells you to turn off your computer. This is a new level of self-awareness. You are now aware of your actions and the work you are doing. This is the level where you can take a step back and think about what you are doing and why you are doing it.
So the next time you are confronted by the project manager and you look at his face and he says “you’re turning off your computer”, think about that. The truth is that he is asking you to do something that is against your free will. Now you have to decide if you are going to comply with his demands or do something else so you can continue working.
This is a lot to consider. Many of us work for ourselves, so this is probably one of the most common questions that we get asked when we open our laptops. We’re usually asked whether we work for ourselves, the company, or a third party. We often don’t know if we work for anything other than our own free will. But we can’t really be sure until we ask the question.
In my experience, the answer is often complicated when it comes to what a company is or not. We often only know this when we find ourselves in trouble. I don’t think that’s necessarily a bad thing, as a lot of people think that a company is a thing that the person who employs them is either a CEO or a director. When you actually do know the company’s name however, you have to consider if this person is an employee or not.
Not all companies are equal. Some are more “people” than others. In the US alone, more than $200 billion goes into the “people” category of business. The other category, the “organization” is just what you see in the “people” category. People are usually the more “people” run businesses, while organizations are run by a few people who can control everything.
When it comes to the job of a project manager, the most important thing is to always have your priorities in order. So the first thing you have to do is make sure that you prioritize your team. The project manager must decide in a way that gives each of his team members what they need most. You also have to make sure that the job is not just about the manager, but also the team. The best project manager is someone who is able to be both of these things.
The best project managers are people who are able to give more than they are asked to. They aren’t just about the job, but also about the team. You have to have a balance between your personal life and your job. You have to be able to be both of these things, as well. It is also important to find someone who can be both a great team player and a great person.
I could go on and on about the importance of balancing your personal life and your job, but that’s a topic we can get to in Part 4 of the series.
