Quote of the week

by Stuart on 9 August 2010

Calvin, from Bill Watterson’s wonderful cartoon strip

“Careful, we don’t want to learn from this.”

Closing a project down is boring.  It’s all loose ends and paperwork, and all the exciting stuff is over.  I don’t want to be bothered with all this guff.  I want to get on to something new and challenging.  I am Calvin.

Closing a project down is a great learning opportunity.  I can look back and see what not to do and what to work on.  I can put the experiences to good use to make myself a better project manager, and to improve the effectiveness of my organisation.  I’ve learnt from Calvin.

Who are you?

PS If you’ve never read Calvin & Hobbes, stop whatever you’re doing and go here.  It’s hilariously funny, with some wonderful insights into life.
