A personal note
I don’t usually talk about personal things on this list, but I’m going to make an exception today, to explain some of my recent inconsistency.
Last Tuesday, October 25, my wife gave birth to our second child, Ivy Nichelle!
As such, I’m taking a couple of weeks off from most work activities, and also getting very little sleep. My intention was to power through with the daily e-mails during this break, but I’ve already missed at least two. And it’s likely I’ll miss another few in the coming week.
So please accept my apologies for the sporadic emails as of late, and I promise to get back to a more regular schedule in a week or so.
That won't work here, we're different
What thing would you like to see work for you, but simply won't "because you're different"?
Don't try fix everything at once
Most teams have many problems that could be fixed. But not all should be fixed. At leat not yet.
