Thoughts on technology and innovation
Ted Husted, Release Engineer
OK, I admit it, I'm a principle geek. In this topsy-turvy world, I cling to developer manifestos and self-help principles like flotsam and jetsam in a flood zone. The Agile Manifesto, the Scrum Guide, the Manifesto for Software Craftsmanship -- all help me through the day.
Ahh, but if it were only the guides and manifestos ... On the way, I'm passing through a gauntlet of Nine Habits, Four Agreements, Six Values, and Two Affirmations.
It's no secret that I'm a follower of Brother Stephen Covey and the Nine Habits.
At NimbleUser, we observe the Four Agreements.
Along with the Agreements, there are our very own six NimbleUser values.
While it may seem like principle soup (yum!), I find each set has its own strengths and applications.
And if that's not enough, I find two affirmations especially meaningful to me, personally.
So that's me, how about you? Do you lead what Covey called a principle-driven life? What principles help you through trying times?
