If you google “agile manifesto” you will find a list of principles that were originally conceived for software development. What I’ve done here is modify those principles so they can apply broadly to success in life. The concepts underlying the original principles remain the same whether you’re trying to get healthier or better utilize your time.
- Strive to make a difference in the world by serving others.
- Accept change as reality, embrace it as a chance to improve.
- Accept failure as a learning opportunity, adapt don’t stop.
- Break work into small pieces, finish in short periods of time.
- Surround yourself with positive and supportive team.
- Make trust the foundation of your relationships.
- Commit to finish what you start.
- Strive to maintain a constant and sustainable pace.
- Strive for continued excellence.
- Simplicity is better than complexity.
- Complexity can be accomplished through small simple steps.
- Get frequent feedback, make necessary course corrections.
