Creating and working toward a vision

Projectica is about creating and pursuing ideas through project-based planning and action.

It’s about you getting clear, organized, and out of your own way. You’ve surely experienced that feeling that some dreams are just out of reach. Maybe you don’t take them seriously. Or as soon as you get organized, something else overwhelms your efforts. Weeks, months and even years can go by, and you wonder what you did with your time. It’s frustrating.

Courage! We’ve all been there. You’re closer than you think to a breakthrough. And if you have been wayward, you can get back on track.

I made these tools specifically to help you crush this:

The Tactical Chronograph – this monthly agenda focuses you on your goal priorities, organizing your efforts and keeping track of your days. If you want things to happen, write them down. Plan on one overarching thing at a time, have three objectives per week, and make a note of your daily or weekly habits.

Life’s Battle Plan – a 10-day email course helping you sort All The Things you want to do into a life- or long-term plan. You can follow the course using just a notebook. Or you could get the fillable (form-enabled) PDF workbook to print and work with, and then use it to distill your notes and save them on your computer. The email course is free; the PDF and a future online course have a fee. 

NEW! “Quit Putting it Off! If you’ve procrastinated, you probably lack confidence about the worthiness of your goals or your worthiness to achieve them. You are worthy, you just need the moves to make. This book gives you plenty. Find it in the Shop, or at Amazon or Apple Books

For the abridged version, A Quick-Start Guide to Quit Procrastination, you can buy it for 99¢ here or on Amazon or Apple Books.
If you buy it from Amazon or Apple Books, kindly leave me a review on their stores on or GoodReads!

These tools grew out of the research and trial-and-error I learned from hustling myself out of a cyclical funk and into being a happy, productive Maker. That means I had to work at it from the inside, and start venturing into unknown territory. I also interviewed users and customers to find out how to make them more useful. Believe me, you can do this and become a better worker and person as a result.

Why? What comes next?

…Now that you’ve increased your capacity to do what you want and turned your dreams into reality, to have a really fulfilling life, it needs to be about something bigger than you. 

Others need you. Your free time and skills, let alone your ideas, can make lives and communities more functional, more beautiful, more fun, and more inclusive. The world is a better place when everyone shares their gifts and gets a chance to collaborate to the best of their ability.

I want to:

  1. help people find clarity and then be effective at projects they want to build,
  2. make co-operative efforts with other people easier, and
  3. make obstacles to collaboration irrelevant.

Basically, I want to make tools that increase people’s capacity to care, initiate, create, and respond (see the Mission, below).

In the future world of work, people are going to need more meaning and cooperation – in all communities, and across all walks of life.
