The week 09-2020 highlights ...

I think it is a personality issue, if you tend to go for long-term plans or much more appreciate the mid- or even short-term goals. And you can change your approach over time or depending on an experience you make in life. If a young person dies in your family or friends environment, you automatically start to think about how quickly a situation can change or a life can be ending. So just do it and do not move stuff out ...

Easier said than done, especially when you are already a little bit older. I had a funny discussion with a colleague this week, who will start his 2nd year of working in mid 2020. In April 2020 I will be working for 31 years already and still have another 9 years to go until retirement. So from a 2 years working perspective 31 years sounds pretty long, but when you have lived it already, time is running fast 😉.

Just now only 254 readers to go until the next #256,789 overall reader milestone. I prefer to keep the distance between two milestones shorter, to celebrate more often and give more people the opportunity to win a price. Maybe it is you this time?

The mid- and short-term planning and goal setting is also very well aligned with the AGILE way of working, where a Sprint is just 2 or 3 weeks long. More opportunities to review, involve customers, gather feedback, show results and adjust the direction, when needed. Be more agile, also in private life 👍.

The business changes. The technology changes. The team changes. The team members change. The problem isn't change, per se, because change is going to happen; the problem, rather, is the inability to cope with change when it comes. -- Kent Beck https://www.goodreads.com/author/show/25211.Kent_Beck
