You’ve heard the exercise: “If you only had 1 week left to live, how would you spend it?”
I’ve always found that an instructive thought experiment – and also a little vague.
Here’s a refinement: what if you only had 1 project left to work on?
- Which project would you choose?
- How would you go about it?
- What would be your criteria for success?
My guess is: the answers to these questions will be different than the way you’ve been approaching your projects up until now.
My question is: will that continue to be the case?
What if you approached every project (business, personal, or any other category) as if it were your last?
