“A project is complete when it starts working for you, rather than you working for it.” ~ Napoleon Hill
But look at my situation....if everything is working as per the plan then there will be bugs in the system and if system is working then for some reason business want to play there tactics and will play games in givingyou sign-off....oh Gosh! when this cat and mouse game will be over...thats what I was thinking all these days!!!
“You have to learn the rules of the game. And then you have to play better than anyone else.” ~ Albert Einstein
Finally, the D-day came...I tried my best to deliver to the team who were working after hours for deployment..as I knowwhen a project fails its all PM's fault and when its a success its a team effort :)
So friends, my much awaited delivery was completed on Friday July 21st. I think it was 11.49 when I sent the emails to all saying successful delivery of the project :D
“Like as a woman with child, that draweth near the time of her delivery, is in pain, and crieth out in her pangs; so have we been in thy sight, O LORD.” ~ Bible
Thank God, it was not 12:00 mid-night :D to say its delayed hehehe!!!
I am much happy that this project is completed. It was just like I was 9 months up and still no sign of delivery or what they calllabor pain hahaha!
Its a great relief and I must say...we all have that limit of patience where we are working towards a date and then those postpones and delayshappen and we get a bit low on morale but still we strive to deliver with the same spirit as we get another date and so on...
“Sorrow comes to all...Perfect relief is not possible, except with time. You cannot now realize that you will ever feel better and yet you are sure to be happy again.” ~ Abraham Lincoln
“With every project you do, you bring out a part of yourself, and it seems to be quite a good way of expanding a person.”
