A sky full of Agile

Everybody seems to be doing Agile these days. Start-ups do it, big organisations do it, all the cool companies do it. That’s even how autonomous cars are being developed - the agile way. Even though it’s been agreed that ‘there’s no silver bullet’ in software development, well, apparently there must be and it’s Agile. Right? Don’t get me wrong. I love Agile. And that’s exactly why I hope it will never turn into Coldplay of software development. Sometimes it seems that Agile is becoming this crowd-pleasing, catchy thing, that slowly loses its meaning.

Bright Networking Time

Networking gives you the chance to connect with new highly influential people easily, people who wouldn’t connect with you just through a cold email or a LinkedIn invitation. It’s a chance where you can build long term business relationships and to strengthen the relationship with old connections which could formulate into business growth.

Some people feel stressed, nervous about networking and speaking to new people, don’t be, just be yourself and have fun.

Procrastination can often make our lives miserable. It steals our time, money, and first of all satisfaction. So, what can we do not to let this powerful thief steal the greatness of our life?
