Step by step and the thing is done.
~ Charles Atlas (October 30, 1892 – December 23, 1972)


Growing up in the 1960’s advertisements by Charles Atlas were in magazines and on the backs of comics.  How to build a strong body through regular exercise so no one will kick sand in your face at the beach.

Each small step adds up to accomplish a goal or healthy way of life.

Being a Project Management Officer in my work life/career, this statement rings truer than Charles Atlas probably ever thought.  Large Projects are done the same as small ones.  Make a Project Management Plan.  Develop a WBS (Work Break Down Structure) to provide the basis for any project.  What steps are necessary to complete a task?  How do the tasks interact?  What’s the lead/lag time?  Each small packet completed and ticked off to mark the progress towards a goal.  What’s the cost associated with each task?  Are you on schedule? budget? time?  What milestones must be met?  How to celebrate milestones?  What Lessons were learned?  Closeout.

The same rules apply to any goal you want to achieve.  Wanna learn to ride a motorcycle at 50?  Find a place that offers lessons.  Buy a motorcycle.  Buy the correct safety clothes – helmet, boots, gloves, coat.  Take the lessons.  If you fall, get up and try it again.  If you fail, take the course again.

Get a bigger motorcycle. Practice til you can do it.  Enjoy!

Friday the 13th

Infamous bike ride to Port Dover Ontario on Friday the 13th, usually attended by about 200,000 bikers.  My son will be attending today with my motorcycle and his wife.  Safe journey for all attending.

Also a full moon.  The Harvest Full Moon.

Watch out for witches, black cats, pumpkins and evil doers.  🙂
