HOME Intro to My Website, My Manifesto, and Me


Welcome to

My Website and My Manifesto

"Improving Future Project Performance Results"  

Hello! Welcome! My name is
James G. Short,  Jr. (Jim) (me)
I am Happy to Meet You!

Yes, my name is indeed James Gordon Short, Jr. People who know me also call me James or Jim. I am creating and maintaining this website (, which is all about me and many of my past, present and future projects. Ever since I was a child, I have focused a large share of my energy and attention on finding "Short Solutions to Long Standing Problems." I have often been amazed and surprised and annoyed and frustrated when products or processes performed functions better or worse than intended or expected, and with widely varied consequences. My purpose here is to provide documentation of my self evaluations of some of my own projects and roles  I have performed and compare the results with observations  concerning other projects that I have watched  and experienced from other positions and perspectives. My intention is to provide and share the project performance results documevntation in a format where creative possible solutions can be proposed and examined and tested and applied. My hope is that by sharing these improvements with many people that genuine health safety  and happiness benefits can be realized.  I am doing this  because I believe that all human life is an extremely valuable resource and that it is not acceptable to sallow it to be wasted carelessly, especially when relatively simple solutions may be found by creative thinking.  I am optimistic that through this website these new  and innovative solution approaches can be found and explored and adapted, and that I can  locate people and information resources to help me make is happen.

Here at I am represented by my initials "JS" placed in front of the website title and domain name. In this way I assert my responsibility and leadership role in " — My Manifesto — Improving Future Project Performance Results."  What is "manifesto?" What is a "project?"


According to Wikipedia (

manifesto is a published verbal declaration of the intentions, motives, or views of the issuer, be it an individual, group, political party or government.[1][2][3][4] A manifesto usually accepts a previously published opinion or public consensus or promotes a new idea with prescriptive notions for carrying out changes the author believes should be made. It often is political or artistic in nature, but may present an individual's life stance. Manifestos relating to religious belief are generally referred to as creeds.

According to Wikipedia (

In contemporary business and science, a project is an individual or collaborative enterprise, possibly involving research or design, that is carefully planned, usually by a project team, to achieve a particular aim.[1]

A project may also be a set of interrelated tasks to be executed over a fixed period and within certain cost and other limitations.[2]

It may be a temporary (rather than permanent) social systems as work systems that is constituted by teams within or across organizations to accomplish particular tasks under time constraints.[3] A project may be a part of a wider programme management


I am known by my friends and family as "James" or "Jim." I am the leading character in my life project, which for practical purposes began on the day I was born in Lansing MI USA in 1957. This project includes several phases, including birth, school education, college education, career work, etc. This project interacts with k

Like many boys and girls that I knew as personal friends as I was growing up in the 1960s, I have always wanted to be a hero. I sincerely hoped that I would be available to help make the world a  significantly better place in some way. I was certain that in my own way, I would be able to work to "Brighten the Corner Where I Am." I knew I would be qualified to do this because I had done most of my homework and received reasonably good grades all through school, I liked my music lessons and played piano and drums reasonably well, I was pretty well behaved and was always inquisitive about things around me, my  mother was a vocal and keyboard musician, my father was a medical doctor. Life could be challenging and sometimes it was a struggle, but somehow I was able to keep a positive attitude which helped me stay on track. I was also well grounded in Biblical stories and Christian doctrines and living habits and dietary and healthful life style. Why should I ever be overly concerned about anything?

I have long been aware of the way in which the passage of time seems to be accelerating at an ever increasing rate every year. I have also long been intending to take some time to  reflect on this and to take some time out to evaluate my progress toward my many personal and professional project goals. But naturally, for various reasons, before now I have not been willing to reflect on myself and evaluate my progress. 

Then, in the early months of 2017,
