Amazing things have been happening lately. Some of them are thrilling and others are petrifying.
It has been a slow process, but because of my willingness to try different paths to learn more about myself, I have had the gift of learning to grab different elements of tools and finding what works best for me.
Project Me is a long culmination of all that I have learned along the way! Some of the lessons that have become fundamental to the process of making myself my own project, I have really taken the time to define and make my own. Some of the messages that I pass onto other people while I talk about my journey have made profound impact in their lives.
I always has the plan for Project Me to become something far bigger than just my journey or just a blog and Tweets that are laced with my wisdom.
Little did I know ... well no, I always knew and I just forgot ...
I have been teaching this work for year. I know that social media became a very big part of my journey, but I have always been that Life Achievement Facilitator and lately, I've been pining to get back to the teaching of Project Me.
The more I pushed to focus on the social media, the more something deeper within me pushed back, until I was literally in a state of chaos.
It took a while, but the more I pushed it aside, the more the next step of Project Me kept pushing back. I just couldn't find time to do what I wanted to do and the more I tried to make time, the less time I had.
Then, one day, when I turned to another self help tool to help me see the light, I realised that all I needed to do was focus back on the original vision I had for Project Me.
In just over a month I cannot tell you how time has opened up, all the right resources and support has come along and how I have managed to start to bring the practical side of Project Me back to life.
I'm so excited and petrified all at the same time. I'm like a kid who knows the destination is nearing and just can't wait to get to the exciting bits.
On the other hand, it's all exciting bits.
Here's the crazy part ...
A few weeks ago I was lying bed, wondering where to start in putting Project Me into practical work. I had visions of me having to start writing everything out from scratch, even though I have been talking about it and teaching it for over a decade.
Then it hit me. I had it all the time.
I scrambled through piles of papers (thank heaven's I'm a horded) and finally found it. The course I put together in 2007. Wow ... before I even knew what it was, Project Me had been more than partially developed.
Today I had a very exciting meeting with Microsoft. It started with technical support and ended up with guidance on the next steps to take to help develop Project Me into an online 12 week course (fully supported and fueled by Microsoft ... that's the plan!!
I have other plans too. My blog needs another overhaul to make it more mobile friendly. I need sound bites and little snippets of content to accompany these long blog posts of mine. I need to also refocus my outcomes and take small blogging and real life steps to turn Project Me into the vision I had for it a decade ago.
It may take weeks, months or years, but one big part of Project Me is setting that compass to happiness ... and that destination hasn't changed at all!
Very special thanks to the Microsoft team for your incredible support of my Project Me vision!!
