Life is a series of projects

In the pursuit of personal growth and achievement, it is crucial to approach life as a series of projects and take on the role of a project manager. By adopting the principles of the GROW POSITIVE method, you can become a “Project Lifer” and gain the skills and mindset necessary to effectively manage your life projects. In this article, we explore why becoming a project manager of your life projects is essential and how the GROW POSITIVE method can significantly increase your chances of success.

The Power of Life Project Management

A project manager is responsible for overseeing defined projects, ensuring goals are met, and teams work together to achieve success. According to PMI’s Pulse of the Profession 2018 report, projects with high-maturity project management processes have a success rate of 64% to 67% in terms of scope, time, and budget. On the other hand, low-maturity organizations experience success rates of only 36% to 43%. These statistics illustrate the impact of a well-trained project manager in increasing the probability of success.

Similarly, your life projects require management and coordination to achieve your desired outcomes. While a company can hire a project manager to achieve its goals, your life cannot be delegated. You are solely responsible for your life projects, and therefore, it is crucial to develop the necessary mindset, skills, tools, and techniques to lead yourself effectively. The GROW POSITIVE method offers a comprehensive approach to life project management, enabling you to plan, execute, monitor, control, and successfully complete your projects.

Embracing the GROW POSITIVE Method

To maximize your chances of success, it is essential to understand the GROW POSITIVE method and its impact on your life projects. By acquiring the basic competencies of GROW, significantly increasing your probability of success to 40%. The GROW method focuses on personal growth, goal-setting, and self-improvement, empowering you to take control of your life projects.

Furthermore, by incorporating the hard skills of POSITIVE project management on top of the soft skills of GROW, your probability of success can soar to 67%. POSITIVE project management emphasizes strategic planning, leveraging strengths, and leveraging experience to achieve desired outcomes. By combining the two approaches, you can multiply your chances of success by at least seven times.

Life as a Project

When we consider the definition of a project as “a temporary endeavor undertaken to create a unique product, service, or result,” we can draw parallels to our own lives. Life is temporary and concludes with the completion of the work we set out to achieve. This realization underscores the importance of treating life as a project, acknowledging the need for planning, execution, and completion.

Defining Your Purpose

To embark on your life project management journey, it is crucial to define your purpose in life. Take the time to reflect on your vision, the person you aspire to become, and how your achievements can positively impact others. Articulate your dreams, how you can contribute to the well-being of others, and how you aim to leave a lasting impact on the world. This clarity of purpose will serve as a guiding light as you navigate your life projects.

Summary and practical tip:

Becoming a Project Lifer is about taking charge of your life projects and embracing the principles of life project management. By following the GROW POSITIVE method, you can significantly increase your chances of success and achieve your goals and dreams. Remember, life is a series of projects, and it is up to you to manage them effectively.

Practical tip: Define your purpose in life by defining your vision and mission.

  • For defining your vision, answer the following questions: What would you achieve at the end, imagining there are no limits or barriers to your dream? Who would you become? How the outcome of your life purpose can help others?
