Welcome back to yet another week at www.implementingscrum.com.
Wow. I saw something at a client site a few weeks ago that inspired the cartoon for this week.
This is real life.
As it is every week and every posting with me.
Unexpected to say the least.
I’ll let you in on the actual pictures of the inspiration tomorrow… but for now let’s continue with the point for this week.
Sometimes it feels like you are working on the same thing day after day.
At least sometimes it feels that way to me. Maybe it is just me (smile).
Kinda like a treadmill. This is something that you walk on forever and actually get nowhere.
Are you there in your [work] life?
What about your Team?
And your Organization?
What can help you get out of this — or “off the treadmill?”
I could sugar coat it with a bunch of inspirational bla bla, and sometimes I do that.
Tonight… zero sugar coating. It is not going to happen, as sometimes you need to hear this and actually take a hard knock of reality (like sometimes people on the team need to be “voted” off the island!).
The only way off the treadmill is for you to make a change.
The rest of the Team and Organization will follow.
Or will they?
Does it really matter to you?
Worry about you first.
The rest will follow.
Gotta run! Please send comments, questions, criticisms, ideas, or whatever here.
You can also enter The Scrum Community to discuss this entry and other Scrum topics. Thank you!
