“It takes half your life before you discover life is a do-it-yourself project.” – Napolean Hill
Indeed. While the projectnotions.com site will be dedicated to documenting substantially completed projects, this blog will chronicle the thoughts, motivations, emotions and struggles in getting to the project completion.
The projects have no clear coordinating theme, other than that they captured my attention and energy. Projects normally start with some notion that motivates the project, but in some cases the project is a notion. For example, a trip to China ten years ago caused me to contemplate the notion of “What makes America Great?” The project to answer that question, at least in my own mind, transversed years, continents, and relationships. Not quite completed even yet, it’s a project about a notion.
The “ultimate” do-it-yourself project is made more rich, satisfying, and complete with the projects that consume our time. While “all is vanity,” it’s also fitting to “enjoy the good of all your labor under the sun.”
Thank you for stopping by and best wishes in your own notions and projects.
