Project Management, Design

I’m starting to get interested in project management. No, I don’t ever want to leave my role as an Interaction Designer, but the more invested I am in a design projected, the more value I see for excellent management. Here are a few links that stirred up my interest:

This is a bit ironic, because it goes against my personal goal of writing and sharing more of my self and I’ve head such disdain for the overly recycled web lately. One fun thing about having my own website is that I have the option to not care at all – winkyface.

Either way, I hope you enjoyed the next 5 seconds of scrolling!

Make time

“Don’t say you don’t have enough time. You have exactly the same number of hours per day that were given to Helen Keller, Pasteur, Michelangelo, Mother Teresa, Leonardo da Vinci, Thomas Jefferson, and Albert Einstein.”
