Last week, I realized I had not posted on this blog since a bit more than two years, as pointed out by some of my colleagues who – surprisingly – were reading my notes on Project Management. So, I decided to get back to it and start sharing again. So much has happened in my life since my last posts (some pretty bad things, and some pretty good ones too), but I decided to focus this blog on three essential topics that are close to my heart:
First of all, I have been practicing Martial Arts for the best part of my life. I discovered Ninjutsu in 1996, when I joined the Bujinkan Niten Dojo. After several years of moving from country to country, training on my own, I finally joined the Bujinkan Sanshin Dojo earlier this year, and started teaching after being awarded my Shodan (black belt). There are a lot of lessons to be learned from the practice of martial arts, most of which can be used and applied in every day’s life, including at work, especially when managing projects.
Project Management is the second topic (not necessarily in this order) I will be blogging about. As you might know if you have been here before, I have been serving PMI for several years now. I have recently joined the PMI UAE Chapter’s leadership board, and I hope that this will give me further opportunities to share thought-provoking notes on our beautiful profession.
The third topic I will blog about is Music. I have been playing keyboards since I was a kid, and have been writing several albums (during my university years). Recently, I got back to playing, and my son is now drumming, so there is more music at home than ever before.
All in all, I hope you will enjoy your reading, and if you have good ideas of subjects to blog about, feel free to contact me.
