3 Ways to Use the Easy Projects Calendar for Better Project Management

I often marvel at how some people can keep track of every variable in their work and life in their heads. For those of us who don’t have the luxury having that high of an IQ, we need visuals of whatever is going on in our lives (Okay, not visuals of everything, but you catch my drift) We all have our favorite way of organizing our activities – be it apps, or paper planners, or just writing everything down on a whiteboard – but what all these ways have in common is that they rely on calendars to keep the structure clear.

12 Project Management Hacks

Project Management can be pretty challenging and we all know it. As I was reading through tons of  how-to articles, life-hacks and interviews with innocent accidental project managers (who woke up one day to find a giant project on their desk) , I realized it’s really the same advice all around the block. To come up with some original stuff, I spoke to my colleagues and applied my own experience to compile a list of basic project management hacks. “By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail” – this is a great quote I came...

Project Management Lessons I Learned at a Bad Fast Food Chain

I stopped by a fast food restaurant a couple of days ago to get my morning coffee and sandwich.

People handle stress different ways....
