It’s finally Spring in Boston! It’s nice outside! I want to BE outside! This yearning is effectively an impediment!
Thus, the balance of a game plan and reality results in a strategy that makes me feel less guilty for enjoying the weather while still accomplishing the most per time spent on these sprints: Ruthless Story Completion.
I am now spending time on getting one story done at a time – this results in two levels of satisfaction. Sure, I get the points associated with that story – a shallow sense of feeling good; however, I then know I have attained a piece of functionality associated with the story – THAT is the deeper level, the fulfillment.
