A surefire way to invigorate your career, job, or job search is to think in terms of projects. Anything (ranging from a routine task to a once-in-a-lifetime career assignment), when treated as a project, can jump-start a stalled career or translate taken-for-granted activities into marketable skills.
Projects force you to think of your work in units. Projects have purposes, beginnings, and ends/results. By treating your work activities as projects, you can describe outcomes and determine effectiveness.
