Both Sarah and Calvin, in different ways, highlight the importance of following a process. Calvin, the second oldest, says: My whole life changed when I finally understood there was a process for doing this job. So I was chuffed to read from Melinda: It took me a long time… to learn to take care of myself.

So I was particularly pleased to re-assess some of my own project management priorities, after reading from the initial thoughts of Lori, Jeff, and Jim. Lori is one of the two youngest Alphas.
