I’m done reading self-help books, here’s why

Here is a little off-topic rant that I wanted to publish for a while now. If you are a frequent visitor of the blog you know that I do book reviews on Project and portfolio management. But I used to read a lot of books in the self-help category as well. That stops right now, and let me tell you why.

Seven self-help books I’d recommend everyone to read.

New to TPC? Let’s recap

Hello reader! Welcome to The Project Corner, or how I have started calling it in more recent articles and video’s: TPC.

❤ TPC even has a logo ❤

What originally started out as a blog related to Microsoft Project and Project Server grew into a place for me to discuss anything related to Microsoft Project and Portfolio Management. This includes much more than just those two applications and even extends beyond this WordPress blog that you are now on.

One of my readers requested a place to find all the best content related to TPC. And this article is my attempt to provide such a place.

The Netherlands is currently hit with closed schools, musea and other measures. We aren’t on complete lockdown yet, but who knows this might happen in the coming days.

That’s why I wrote this article to help raise awareness on the Covid-19 pandamic and share some reports and articles created by (hopefully) way smarter people then me.

2019, and a happy New Year

Normally I would do an extensive blog update on how last year went. Sharing some numbers and talking about how my year was in general.

This year I wanted to share a short note with a little information on what has happened the last two months. Because updates have been scares during that time and I think it will take a little more time before I’m back in the game.
