would you believe that i have found something else to take up even more of my time? yes, that's right... i am studying again. that after i vowed never ever to do anything that smelt like studying when i completed my honours!
i have registered for an IT project management course through the university of johannesburg. i am hoping that this will assist me in my current role through providing a formal methodology to managing my rather informal initiatives. "initiative" is the name given to projects run outside of the project management way of working, managed and worked on solely by a business analyst or set of them. which means that i often perform the role of both project manager and business analyst on my proje... erm... initiatives.
project management is a life skill that may be applied in absolutely any situation, something i believe will never be outdated. that's my story and i'm sticking to it.
i do have times of doubt and regret. especially as i spend long weekends, public holidays, weekends, and all my spare time in front of my textbooks and case study homework. urgh. all i hold on to is that this will benefit me not only in the future but soon. very soon...

we've come a long way, baby

cellphones have changed the way we interact with each other and the world around us. we can no longer imagine the days when we weren't in constant contact and communication. when the only way of speaking to someone telephonically was to wait for them to get home or to the office... my, how will we be communicating in 5 or 10 year's time?
