My first project was planning my lifelong dream trip to Greece. I had no clue that what I was doing was project management. Back then before all of the apps and templates, I used a 2-inch binder with dividers and a printed calendar that I color coded into phases.
I remember trying to plan every detail about a place I had never been to, thinking, this seems impossible. I was deep into the weeds of making this trip happen and I wanted to make sure every single thing I read about, I experienced.
