Just finished reading a funny article from The Atlantic about how New Year’s Eve is the most overhyped holiday in existence. As I move forward in life, I get a lot of enjoyment trying to see a writer’s heart behind the message they put out. Of course, I could be wrong to think a writer had a bad NYE experience that scarred them, maybe they don’t like staying up late to cover an event.
Either way, it got me to thinking about the holiday following: New Year’s Day. Who doesn’t love a fresh start, right? In old software methodologies, a fresh start once or twice a year was usual. Now, with Agile and Scrum leading the way, fresh starts are as we desire.
Look at tomorrow as day one of spring one. Try something, anything, you have been wanting. Then let it go a day, a week, or a month. Afterwards, inspect what happened and adapt to new data. Sounds simple? Not always, but very possible.
Have fun in your first sprint. Let me know how it goes!
