What if you could change any habit or add a new one, what would you change? You can use Agile Results, introduced in Getting Results the Agile Way, to change a habit more effectively. It helps to stack the deck in your favor. You put time, repetition, and learning on your side to change any habit.
My book Getting Results the Agile Way was downloaded 20,000 times between Tuesday and Wednesday. I was happy to see my book was featured alongside Stephen Covey’s 7 Habits of Highly Effective People on Amazon’s Best Sellers list for Self-Help. My book was also featured alongside David Allen’s Getting Things Done: The Art of Stress-Free Productivity on Amazon’s Best Seller’s list for Business Time Management. It was also in #10 in the Top 100 Free in Kindle Store list.
This is a guest post from Yvonne Root on her experience adopting Agile Results as a simple system for meaningful results. Yvonne is one of the team members behind Journal in a Box, which helps you grow yourself, your interests, and your business, through the power of journaling.
I was trying to figure out what is the most powerful thing that I could give you that would help you the most with work and life. At the end of the day, I think it’s a results system. Not just any results system. A personal results system. One that lights your productivity on fire.
One of the most common questions I get with Getting Results the Agile Way, is whether to keep listing the same Three Wins each day, each week, each month to reinforce them, or to change your wins (which changes what you focus on.)
One of the most important aspects of Agile Results in Getting Results the Agile Way is the idea of “fresh starts.” Get a fresh start each day, each week, each month. To do this, you shift from focusing on “backlog burndown” to “value up.”
