This evening, after I got off a phone call discussing a project with a colleague, I thought “Huh, I guess you could call that project management.”
I worked as a project manager earlier in my career, but what I’m doing now feels completely different and much more pleasant. Strip away the bureaucracy and politics, and project management just feels like getting work done.
I have several people working for me now, but project management doesn’t take much time. I still spend most of my time working on my own projects.
