Confession: This month my wife and I have been going through the process of preparing our summer home for sale. In the 20+ years that we’ve owned it, we have accumulated a huge collection of stuff that must be sorted, donated, sold, or simply thrown away. So for the past several weeks I’ve been doing “real work,” as my wife would say. (And I’ve got the sore muscles and callouses to prove it.) The result: There will be no newsletter or no new blog posts here this month.
In the meantime, however, I am pleased to share with you a new blog post/video from my Inspired Project Teams website.
Take a Break: A Mindfulness Meditation in the PA Countryside
As part of preparing to say “good-bye” to this summer house, I’ve been recording some video of the nearby places that I’ve especially enjoyed over the years. I decided to collect some of these together into a 6-minute video titled “Take a Break: A Mindfulness Meditation in the PA Countryside.” You can check it out here:
I hope you enjoy this video. And, more importantly, I hope you take the time to practice mindfulness meditation to manage stress and generally help you endure your “life in the projects.” Your project team will thank you!

The fourth part of The Project Management Minimalist is titled “Taking Care of Yourself: Managing Your Priorities, Time, & Energy.” This part of the book is a collection of 14 of my favorite, short-and-sweet “best practices” that can help you take charge of your priorities, better manage your time, and maintain your energy. After all, project management (even Minimalist PM) can be difficult and stressful. So why not do everything you can to maintain your edge? Below is one of the five best practices from the sub-section Understand and Manage Your Stress. Enjoy!
