From the Author
The story tickles the imagination. Why were the shoes never worn? Were they too small? Did the baby die? Was the baby not able to wear shoes? Any of these are plausible explanations left up to the reader's imagination.
This style of writing has a number of aliases: postcard fiction, flash fiction, micro fiction, and sudden fiction. A dear friend of mine, Tom Fowler, introduced me to this style of writing over a cup of coffee. I was entranced with the style of writing and started thinking about how this extreme brevity of writing could apply in today's micro-burst communication culture of text messages, tweets, and wall posts. Thus the inspiration for Six-Word Lessons for Project Managers.
In Six-Word Lessons for Project Managers you'll get a bevy of wisdom nuggets with a practical explanation of how to apply the nuggets in your day-to-day routine. Rather than pore through pages and pages of content trying to mine nuggets, Six-Word Lessons gives them to you straight up; no strainer needed.
My hope is that you're able to mine some great take-aways from Six-Word Lessons and improve how you do things day-in and day-out.

I wouldn't recommend reading this book cover-to-cover in one sitting, but instead I invite you to take each lesson and think about it for a day or so.
If you're a seasoned PM mentoring a less experienced PM, you can use these lessons as a springboard for discussion, and perhaps provide some examples when the lessons don't quite hold true for you. (No rule or guideline is 100% infallible... even this one.)
This concise book is a surefire source of icebreakers at your next PM meeting.
