Making the Most of Project You

Whether you work as an employee or an independent contractor, the best way to achieve success in your career is to first make the folks who pay your way successful.

Helping customers (internal and external) reach their goals isn't just about being great at technical communication--it's helping your customers achieve all their objectives:
  • business goals
  • profits
  • deadlines
  • quality levels
  • getting to go home on time
Keep your customers coming back for more by learning a few simple techniques for managing your projects and yourself. Pick up some helpful hints for developing the self-discipline, perseverance, and personal organization you'll need to build a work pipeline and to get the work done without sacrificing balance in your life.
