“Productivity is never an accident. It is always the result of a commitment to excellence, intelligent planning, and focused effort.” -- Paul J. Meyer

Anutthara Bharadwaj, a Program Manager on the Microsoft Visual Studio team shares her experience on adopting the Agile Results system in her post, Getting Results the Agile Way.  In her story, Anu writes how she went from being overwhelmed to on top of her game by adopting three core practices:

  1. The Rule of 3
  2. Monday Vision, Daily Outcome, and Friday Reflection
  3. Hot Spots

I like her concrete examples.  In her case, she uses One Note to implement the system.   That’s the power of the Agile Results system.  It’s a principle-based system so you can use whatever tools works best for you for adopting the practices.  (I’ve used everything from pen and paper, whiteboards, Evernote, Outlook, One Note, simple text files, etc.)

Small changes in your day, add up to big changes in life.  I’ve had the chance first-hand to watch Anu transform and it’s been an amazing journey.
