Weight management appears to be a challenge for many American’s. I am no different. When I stepped on the scale this morning, I was 444.6 pounds. My doctor has diagnosed me as morbidly obese. What does this have to do with project leadership you ask? EVERYTHING. Just like the old story about the Cobbler’s Children not having shoes (I am not talking Peach Cobbler). Project Leaders have a tendency to help others solve their problems and ignore their own individual challenges (often until it is too late). This project is about stepping up to the plate and solving personal challenges as personal projects.
The purpose of this Weight Loss blog is for me to provide updates to my readers on my own personal project…Getting Healthy and loosing approximately 240 pounds in the process. This project is my toughest project to date and expected to be a “troubled project” throughout the effort.
MY PERSONAL PROJECT
My strategy will be to treat my personal weight loss effort as a project. That is, plan it like a project, execute it like a project, monitor and control it like a project. The first step is to create a Project Charter. As you can see from the Project Charter link, the project is approved and now official. The next step is the Planning Process and will be discussed in my next blog. My weight loss blog will be updated weekly.
