Project management is a delicate thing. You have to learn from what you’ve done in such a way that it helps in future projects. This paragraph from Blog Business World struck a cord:
A post mortem of what went badly can go a long way toward making the correct decision the next time. Learn to recognize patterns in your current and previous businesses and careers. While history might not repeat exactly, the same general business issues arise again and again. There will always be cash flow shortages, the need to find new customers, problem clients, and a shifting economy and market place. Learning to recognize these similarities will ease the blow to your bottom line. The practice might even enhance your profitability.
Nice to hear other people advocating that which I already do. Validation is a good thing.
