10-Year Projects and Short Projects


One of the most important things for your entire life is choosing what projects you work on.

If you choose your projects right, life will be very satisfying, full of achievements, every year will be a little easier and better than the last one.

If you choose your projects wrong, you'll get stagnation, be forced to re-start from scratch when things fail or get abandoned, and otherwise have a rather frustrating life.

And yet, it's rather hard for most people to choose what to work on. There's potentially... well, infinite things.

I'd like to recommend a guideline to you: only do 10-year projects or short projects, and almost nothing in between. Since switching to this view of the world, life's gotten immensely easier and better for me, I've been able to have a lot more successes, and deliver a lot more value to the world.

Was it Lo'la Love?

Valentine's Day is a day to show your partner how much you love them, and this year was a special one for me and my husband as it was the 10th anniversary of our very first date.

I was 19 at the time, he was 23 and we had been working together at a large law firm in Manchester for 8 months before he plucked up the courage to ask me out on a date.

Thinking about it now, I still can't believe that was way back in 2004! This year, to celebrate 10 years together, we wanted to do something special but couldn't decide what to do, and then I spotted a competition running on the @A_Listed Twitter page to win a Valentine's night out at Lola Lo in Manchester.
