We often talk about measures, such as cycle time, when describing how fast features can be developed. I suppose it’s worth pointing out that cycle time can apply to us as well, in our roles.
People have a tendency to hold on to the past, almost admiring it. We all understand how fast technology changes, but somehow we’re hesitant to pursue the change just as quickly as technology moves.
Life is like a ten-speed bicycle. Most of us have gears we never use. – Charles M. Schulz
There’s a future ahead and some of the most game-changing events in our lives and work might be on tomorrow’s horizon. Let’s think about how we can create a difference where we are now and choose to stay ahead rather than just keeping up.
Change doesn’t wait for anyone. If we don’t pursue better things, they’ll bypass us entirely.
