Hello everyone. Welcome to the five Minutes Podcast. Today I like to discuss with you. Why sometimes people see myself very happy, very excited with a lot of passion for what I do and how many people come to me and say, why you are so passionate? Is this because you are a Brazilian or because you are Lattin or something like that. And I always try to explain to people is that I found a perfect match professionally, something that combined it, my own profile desire with a profession that could fulfill that. So if we think about different people, we, we see it, that some people they love to be in a more analytical room.
They love to analyze data that they love to analyze information. And there is a lot of professions that could fit perfectly for them doing that. Like for example, finance become in a business analyst order. They are very outspoken. They love to talk to people. They love to engage people. They love to be, to get our, they love to talk to him and they love engaging in these people can become excellent sales person, excellent business leaders, excellent marketing people working in communications. Some of them, they want a massive freedom. They want to be free for everything. They don't want any boundaries.
Ricardo (1m 31s):
And then they become in a temporary leaders. And of course, I'm not saying that these are mutually exclusive. And for me, what was important since when I was very young, it was the clear desire I had of making things, making things. For example, I remember that I didn't like too much playing with toys. My great players who was building toys. I built a game. I don't need to play the game, but at one time to understand how do I build the rules of the game? How blind be the boss of the game when it's ready, then its not fun for me anymore. For example, for me, I'm not a person that likes this very stable flow, these very stable oriented floor.
Ricardo (2m 18s):
And I'm not saying this is bad. This is just a personal characteristic. And my found on what is called a project management or transformational or whatever you want to call this my sweet spot because I found something that could match exactly. It's something like how I can help my company, clients, whatever, to connect the dots between the idea and the reality or between something that is so abstract that people have in your mind or an intention and the actual result. This could be anything. These could be from Ave. An idea of building the house to the house, ready, having the idea of creating a new course to the course, ready, have an idea to build the software and the software is ready.
Ricardo (3m 6s):
So all of this transformative afford or something like that, fascinating for me. And I found in project management that Because in the late nineties project management was starting to grow with technology. And of course engineering was a very hot topic. The project management was already a very, but then the technology in this and I'm here not to talk at all about what is the method. The method is just the way you connect the dots. But to what was it it's fascinating for me was the pleasure of making something real. You know, if it's something like, please I will just want to take an analogy. If you compare someone that inherit millions and someone that built millions, it's different because what is the different each, not the money in the bag and the money in the bank is the same.
Ricardo (3m 57s):
Absolutely the same. But the difference from those who've made the money is this conquer. You know, you, you did that and this is a different approach from that. And I'm not saying it's good or better and I'm not trying to create any stereotype here. So why did it? I decided to work and make my living out of that. And for me, one of the things and despite have been graduated and all my foremost study is being in engineering. I saw the, Oh, these kinds of logical process to connect things. It's like solving the puzzle. You know, you have so many interconnected pieces that you needed to adjust.
Ricardo (4m 38s):
For example, in that journey, from the idea too, the results, you know, you'll have a supplier that we will not deliver it. You have risks because you have risk as your control. You kind of risky because you don't control whatsoever. You have different approach. You can release in a smaller products, faster using an a gyro approach you can do on a waterfall and create a more complex change of events. You can reframe your Project to deliver better value in. Now you can reframe your project will avoid risks. At the same time, you need to manage people all the time. Time, you need to keep them motivated. Do you need to face the challenges of change because people are not ready to change in the world.
Ricardo (5m 22s):
He is what built the whole scenario. That brings me the passion for what I do. You, you know, I love to do this to try to solve this puzzle, you know, and something like, I have an idea of building a school here that I know the pool holds 600 people. How do I make it? You know, what is the best way to connect this? I want to do a new software that will read the revolution own, you know, higher education. How do I build that? How, what, what is it the best approach? What is the value proposition? How do I connect? How do I manage the current status in the opposite with the future status? So this is exactly what brings me the passion.
Ricardo (6m 3s):
So I chaired with you what brought me to project management, but then you need to also to understand what brought to you to the profession you decide to do. So I hope you find this podcast useful and see you next week with another five Minutes Podcast.
