The difference between caring and caring enough to do something

Just showing up

Sometimes the hardest part to doing something is just showing up. Take this blog for example. I have been on a holiday hiatus for about two months now and even though I felt I should write another post, I couldn’t get the motivation to do so. I am off from grad school right now, work is a bit slow, and I have no other huge priorities, so why can’t I get the motivation to do a simple post?

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.
