2 years of Project-Aria
I am about to go on my annual vacation. I love to travel, so this is always a nice part of the year. I usually travel in the summer, as it is easier to coordinate with the schedule of the kids. Anyway, if I don’t do that, it just means more summer camps.
And I love summer. There are no days that can be too hot for me.
As I am about to leave, I am looking back at Project-Aria, this website on project management, leadership and productivity. I got a bit too busy in the last months, and it delayed some projects for the website. Yet, it is still very alive and important for me. Most of the unusual activities that kept me busy are completed by now. I will be able to work more on some activities for Project-Aria, including writing an ebook.
Project-Aria started on July 10, 2012, with a first post on AtTask, a powerful online project management application designed for the larger teams.
Many things happened since, including me completing my PMP. I would like to explore doing other certifications from PMI. But we will see. The ebook should be my priority.
Top 10 Posts
Looking back at the previous posts, here are the top 10 posts of all times
While I still think that Scrumwise is an interesting online app, I am always surprised to see this post as the number 1 visited post. Mostly because it was an early post and my writing style for the website was still at the beginner’s level.

I like the concept of Dashboard, and should write more on this subject. Again, I am a bit surprised by the ranking of this page. It is another one of my early post and again my writing style for this one is very preliminary. I have not edited the content of the past. You can see my journey developing Project-Aria.

4. Sleep is a key success factor
I do believe strongly in the importance of taking care of our health, and that includes sleep. By reducing sleep hours, you may feel more busy, think you are more productive. It is an illusion. You are more likely to just be busy and tired. If you are result-oriented, you need to rest and sleep.

5. Project-based organization
I like this post. Too often, project management manuals are written considering only the classic manufacturing organization. How about project-based organizations? They are far more common than the manuals would let you think

6. People in Project Management
Project management is more than processes and tools. It is done by people for people. Let’s not forget about that.
