I’ve been toying around with Agile processes at my work and team. There are a lot of aspects of agile that can help even sales teams run better. I’d thought about how this could translate home, but until now haven’t done anything with that other than generally muse about it.

I think the bottom line for me is that whether you’re leading at home or at work, you’ve got to diligently experiment in the pursuit of excellence. Love principles, not processes and focus on results. Check this video out. I think you’ll find it enlightening.
