As busy as a one-armed paperhanger …

Busy, Busy, Busy

Or so the old saying goes, it seems as if my daily training video-creating life is being sidestepped by all those commitments from last year that seemingly got slipped over the holiday period.

busy celebrating with friends

Yes, this old project manager is suffering the slings and arrows of the 2023 Dawn, as my planned few-day break during the holiday, expanded like my waistline (caused by way too many social festivities and slurping into the wee hours with old friends).

The icing on the cake was when I felt a little under the weather just before the holiday, and after checking this out with my doctor – I tested positive for COVID…ARRGGHH!

No panic. Thankfully I seem to have picked up a mild variant, and after 10 days of coughing and spluttering I’m on the mend.

Of course it’s not all my fault that I’m in fire-fighting mode, I partially blame Nick my business partner for being an excellent host and forcing delicious food and countless glasses of alcohol into my hands and tummy!

So right now I’m knee deep in the creative juices of our yet to be launched

  • Microsoft Project 365 Agile
  • Scrum
  • Kanban
  • Hybrid Project Masterclass

As I type and look out my office window across the sunny Pego valley and resist the easy lure of chilling out poolside, I’m keeping focused while planning to launch our latest video-based project masterclass in February this year.

Just to compound everything, it’s on the cards that my wife Jude and I (plus our Brittany Spaniel Rango), will move house this year, so my office space is slowly morphing into a pile of cardboard packing cases.

I must say, that despite the dire warnings of a looming recession in 2023, life here in Spain does not seem much changed and from what I can tell both online and off, folks are taking positive action by investing in themselves – as sales are booming right now for our project management masterclasses.

So, Onwards and Upwards in 2023!
