MEET SETH

 
Hello everyone. My name is Seth. I met Stephen while attending the University of Wyoming. I had the pleasure of working with him and other incredible individuals on a business ethics case competition.  We have been friends since and I can’t thank him enough for the opportunities he sends my way.

I haven't done anything you know of, unless perhaps you were at the 2008 Poudre School District Junior High Wrestling Championship. I took 2nd place; not a big deal.

I do want to share one other thing about me— I thrive on trying new things. Whether it is a new sport, or working in an unfamiliar environment, I think that there is always value in giving an honest effort at something new. Among other things, I have been a lawnmower, baby-sitter, peach transportation assistant, builder at a hardware store, paper boy, pizza boy, paint and glitter factory assembly line worker, mechanic’s assistant, construction worker, accountant, and data analyst. I know that is an exhaustive list, but each of these has helped me develop perspective.

In this article, I explain what perspective means to me and why focusing on it is so important. Once you understand what it is, you can easily apply it to benefit your life and those around you. I hope you enjoy reading, and I appreciate your time!

 

The Path to a Better Perspective

 




Scrum: The Art of Doing Twice the Work in Half the Time

By Jeff Sutherland

This book is a great introduction to the Scrum framework. The methodology is quite simple, but it allows people to tackle complex adaptive problems while they deliver products with the highest possible value. It's used by almost every software company in the world and is considered the 'right' way to run any organization. This is not a book that dives into the 'how' but rather on the 'why'. If you're new to the Agile and would like to understand what all the hype is about, this is the book for you.

Sutherland is a pioneer in Scrum and gives his personal experiences as a fighter pilot, biometrics expert, innovator of ATM technology, and consultant. He explains why each of these areas were enhanced by the development of Scrum. 

As a member of an incredibly agile team, this wasn't everything I was looking for. It did however give a well needed history of Scrum. This is an excellent starting point for people wanting to get a good foundation of how successful organizations operate in the digital age.

This chilled out song is perfect for Sunday drives or a creative session that you want to dig into. I've had this baby on repeat to help calm the nerves. Iron out the wrinkles with this cool track!
