In the lead up to Christmas we’re all a little like headless chickens. We push and rush to close out or tidy up loose ends before everyone disappears on their well-deserved breaks and to give us piece of mind. Why do we do this mad rushing about? And, why is it not limited to the festive season? Perhaps it’s habit. Perhaps we’re reflecting those around us. Perhaps we think it’s the right thing to do. Still, just because it’s something we’ve always done doesn’t mean it’s something we should keep doing. The start of a new year is as good a time as any to change and after many years of seeing the same thing, here are the top five areas I believe are ripe for a regular detox now and throughout the year.

This post is part of the #PMFlashBlog initiative originally kick started by Shim Marom and taken forward into round two by Mark Phillipy, The Sensible PM. The twist this time is that readers will be taken on a 7 week journey as people involved in projects around the globe blog about project management where they live.
This topic posed a challenge for a number of reasons...

The first #PMFlashBlog led by Shim Marom was such a huge global success Mark Phillipy has organised a sequel with a twist. Each Monday for 7 weeks PMFlashBloggers around the world will release their posts about ‘Project Management Around the World’. Those in North America will publish in unison on 3 March followed by Europe on the 10th, Australia and New Zealand on the 17th and so on.
This rolling schedule means we can highlight where we are in the world and the influence that has on how we practice, promote and deliver project management. Each week there’s further opportunity to connect with and listen to the bloggers as they share their thoughts and experiences on the Google+ PMHangout expertly hosted by Mark.
With 50+ project management bloggers already involved there’ll be loads of information and some eye-openers about ‘Project Management Around the World’.
My #PMFlashBlog post will be out 10 March so why not subscribe to my feed, follow me on Twitter, and add the #PMFlashBlog tag to your twitter stream now.
