The difference between caring and caring enough to do something

Overcoming blogger’s block and making the time to blog

On my quest for Agile blogging notoriety, I am often faced with the dilemma of what to blog about and how often. Some books advise daily blogging, some weekly, though all say more is better. But who has the time? And the ideas? So how to solve this problem? I don’t think there is really one solution, just some mitigation techniques and advice I can offer. Here are some things I do to document my ideas for blogs and try and blog more frequently.

Personal Retrospective – a look back on the past year

As I look back at the past year of my life, I realize how much I have learned from Agile 2012 to Agile 2013. Yes, I should be learning things every year, in fact I strive to learn every day, but in the past year I have learned exponential amounts more than in the past years of my life. I wonder if this is a phenomenon that many people realize at points in their lives, or every year? I have not just learned about Agile and gained work experience (though I have done those things) but I have also learned some huge life lessons and learned a lot about myself.
