Just Keep Smiling.


So… I am getting closer to my 6month anniversary at Sagittarius and moving from the Pharmaceutical Industry to the fast-paced ever-changing Digital Industry has definitely had its steep learning curves. Nowadays, I tend to wake up in the morning knowing that my day will never be the same as yesterday (which is incredibly refreshing).

I am going to keep this short and sweet but if you are considering joining the wonderful world of Project Management, here are some of my top tips based on the things I have learned so far:

  1. Accept the fact that your inbox is never likely to reach 0 (even if you try so hard to keep it that way) 
  2. Don’t be afraid to look to your colleagues for help (after all, there is no I in TEAM)
  3. Let the creativity flow when planning and scheduling (it is amazing what you can do with a tight schedule) 
  4. Be articulate when delegating tasks to your team (the detailed, the better)
  5. Be Humble & Helpful (we love that here!)

Each day we are potentially faced with challenges, difficult or stressful situations where we may (or may not) want to pull our hair out but my biggest top tip of all would be to just keep smiling! :)
