Minding your relationships is a given. But have you given any thought to how much they affect your habits, your greenstreaks your levelups?
Mon, 28 November 2022
You have way more minutes in your day to day life available to you that you thing.
Train a habit of start writing or adding to a project of your chose when you find yourself waiting for a meeting to start, or things are delayed and you have to wait. Instead of just "see what's new", give yourself the gift of having written a few sentence, made a notes on the next design etc or whatever you are creating.
Once you have a bigger block of time you have something to start from helping momentum alot.
just mere hundred years ago the average lifespan was 32 or something similar. Thinking of your future self will make you step up for what matters, and let go what doesn't.
But also in the short run.

Listen to those parts inside yourself - then please remind yourself about the alternative cost of the individual who might have benefitted if you did ship this today.
Perhaps asking yourself this helps? How can you
You are more needed than you know, yet you might need to try something else to help.

The power of I dont know and default models around uncertainty & risk
What is not surrounded by uncertainty cannot be the truth.
accepting and clearly stating I dont know when we dont, lend us credibility when we say we do and we will.
We also need to accept the really strong power of defaults for when its uncertain and risky. Dont just reward the positive choices.
Only then can we ask ourselvese: "Did it work for its intended?"

its your job to position yourself where you have options that helps others AND yourself. Thats the path toward word that fulfil you and matters for people that care about having that work done.
Focusing on elevating others by creating better options, more options for others is one of the best ways.
More is not better than better. Better is better than more.
Why is More options important though? Because you dont always know what better for other people looks like.
more options also have the benefit of making space for opportunity to help others AND yourself.

Some thoughts on processes, outcomes and vanity metrics
If you embrace communications, metrics and words more like a process that HAS TO start with an intent AND ends with a clear "how do we know if its working, how do we know when to quit" they serve everyone involved better.
if you're not clear on this - most likly its a vanity metrics.

Helping others a choice that is not about doing big things once.
For who'm and for what cause might change but keep giving, shipping and sharing what you see that elevates others.
Dare too see who uses what you teach to elevate others in turn, so your help amplifies instead of staying with just the one.
but "just" the one is where we all start, every day.
Focus on the one in front of you.

Today however cyberspace lets you pull ideas for what better looks like everywhere
Help those around you create knowledge bases that others can pull from.
Help those you work with create remarkable space and a place to pull the work that matter for (Kanban or anything help focus and asyncronus value creator and doesnt expect contact switching like email or meetings just because someone has the status to push you into one instead of sending a memo of what matters)
Most work a knowledge worker does has a time-intervall to it.
Rarely does you instantly act on a book you read - instead you pull from the books wisdom when your work benefits from it.
Rarely does your urgent high-noise task mean important for the long-run. You need to learn to pull from both stacks of work.
As the work becomes smaller and more and more work is expected learning to pull forth the work that matter, and help others create assets and knowledge management that works for them becomes critical. if you dont set personal boundaries and allow people to push things onto your plate without filtering you will loose all the work that really matter longterm.
Work to see the pull and the push in your life. Help other see that dance and the tension between them.

Ideas on the line
Thoughts on ideas that I got wrong for most of my life is (and sometime still do)
* You need to put yourself on the line for experiminting outside of those. I kept wishing I would find this "big AND safe" idea on my safe side of the line.
* Distruptive and really great ideas never have guaranties, proof and deniability. Yet I find myself waiting for trying to find one that have at least one of that bad trio.
* if it was that simple someone would have done it already. Why do I still keep trying to find a simple one?
* I thought the idea had to be unique, new and fresh.
* Analytic's is not a guarantee for the future. Dare to make an assertion. work to figure out if its working and help those you serve see what you see.
* Leadership is NOT asking your team to give you X options and you choose the best one.
.. and a small rant on agile, MVP and what a focus on viable instead of minumum product might mean for those you serve.

Become Better at what -
Your calendar and priorites tell a tale of your future
if most of your day is meetings you most likley will become better at sitting in meetings.
Ask yourself why you didnt send a memo instead. Clearer and saves everyone involved alot of time.
If not - whats that about and whats the skill there'in you want to become better at?
or the opposite.
Like Bruce lee said.
but just doing what youre told as programmer is NOT putting yourself on the line in making better stuff so what IS that think you want to learn to be better at in your elite code-skills
in agile we talk alot about Minumum Viable Product
Viable means its actually helping the client get to where they need to go, from where they are. Scrappy solutions are ok to start with but focus on the actual customer

in data definitions are everything and rarely do we take enough time to understand if we think the same about what goes into a value and what is NOT included into that value.
what has to be true in order for these to work
My thoughts are that
* a goal without commitment and a project is a dream. Important to have but not work or something you're putting yourself on the line for.
* a project without a goal is a hobbie. Important to have but you're unlikly to have an impact.
* Strategy without clear above points are just illusions and bad leadership.
Ask yourself. Who needs to see what you see in order to make change happen where it matters while there is still time to change direction of this ship? and who will thank you for bringing that tension onboard and who will not?

What's your definition of kind?
Sometimes I need to remind myself that tension is needed for change, frictionfree is rarely kind.
Sometimes I need to remind myself that candor is needed for change, holding it in because of fear might not be kind.
What does kindness look like for you?
Who among you inspire you to be kind and what do they do? and what effects does their actions bring those they're kind to?

Create Results to Connect and elevate others For longlasting relationships
Embrace uncertainty for great results & healthy relationships.
Here we ask ourselves hard questions and embrace serious commitments. For a life with lots of fun play, long-lasting relationships, and legacy-worthy results.
Accepting Reality, Data, and that not everything matters.
Connecting, elevating, enrolling those who care.
Its spirals and circles.
Relationships are a gift we can not take for granted, none of us.
Results are something anyone can do independently of where we are on any kind of “ladder” we call can do, however small if we just choose to care. What small thing can you do today to help connect and elevate someone else?
Explore thyself, harness data. Dare to experiment. Evaluate accepting multiple axes for what better looks like.
Be kind to others, and yourself,
by putting yourself on the line for those who care

Embrace and set constraints - everything is a bag and has a category and pattern. Dont let your defaults rule fool you from making decisions early
Someone once said. Life is an empty bag and it's your job to fill it purposely and wisely.
For a long time I believed that meant to fill it richly, with great friends and work that really, honestly mattered to those I serve.
What I missed is that the choice where something belongs is a choice you make BEFORE choosing and creating space for the bag, not when it's too full for effective work or whatever the purpose of the bag is.
if you know what each bag is for, and its containers choosing to NOT move it to another bag instead of dealing with it is a lot easier once it gets fuller than ideal.
Not having made the choice early and trying to squeeze your favorite into a full bag is really really emotionally hard. Yet that's how I and most I know often do it.
Buying a new bag/storage isnt a long-term solution.

What pieces does other need to see in order to get to where they are going?
We never see all the pieces that matter, but accepting there is more than we know helps. accepting the uncertainty of what we see and dont see helps free up alot

Seeing, asking and facing what isn't being said by lifting the Question
How often to you actually pause and make space for yourself to know your position before answering? How often do you refocus on why that ask you for a recommendation?
WHY they are asking in the first place? what is is the ask for a recommended for?
Whats your position in the recommendation? You're not in their shoes. Dont let them drag you there. Surely have empathy for their position but remain in yours.
That said said, respectfully levelup their question in a way you think will help them get from where they are and where they want to go. Dont settle for detours.

No one care how much effort you invested - they care about how it can help them from where they are to where they are going
release freely and often. if your idea is all you've got you've got nothing. share it with those who need it and embrace reality.
if you have to lock in knowledge you're turning into a commodity. like the hackers in the 80th used to say. information want to be free
deliberately put time-blocks onto your calendar to practice with the intent to throw away
Do things early enough with margins to let go. create remarkable space for opportunity. put yourself in a position where your effort matters and get evaluated by those you want to help
time-blocking, intentional action, reflecting on outcome is key. How often do you do it like that?
Sun, 6 February 2022
Dont store - Create, Release, Reflect
So its set. This show will be renamed Results & Relationships.
Why? Im hoping to help you let go of what you make.
this show isnt just for me. The simpler name might help those its for. you.
Just like everything you create.
sure its important to have an intent, a purpose and an idea if what its for is working.
but your work will change, and who its really for will change as you learn more.
Going back to Results & Relationships.
Making a real big difference is alwawys a dance between multiple axises, multiple metrics es.
For example we steal from our selves.
write or market - instead of writting better.
write closedloop - a novel in the closet
dont look for the silver bullet
keep doing some work thats helping some real cause, person.

Dare to be specific and clear enough to create tension. Be respectful to those you serve, and those around you and yourself. Dare to show the tension early saves so many so much - its an huge alternative cost for us people pleasers who rather save those tough confrontative talks for tomorrow. Thinking we're doing the generous thing to have more details, habits, patterns for when we adress it.. yet often resulting in a big cost of delay or ourselves realizing to late that we're serving the wrong thing to long.

Remarkable Position and easy to say name change
I've been wondering if we should rename this thing to Results & Relationship. What do you think oh most splendid of listener?
When I started our pod was primarily for computer leaders using the words direct, Relationship Power and such.
Over the years I observed others, and myself struggle saying the phrase "Relationship Power at work"
Your reputation precedes you. Its nothing new but more urgent than ever with the ever-present machine learning.
Your results is one of the most Key factors setting the options for who you get to build relationships with.
Results. Done well and generous are also something others feel good about remarking on. Good for their own benefit (self image, status and possibilities) as well that remark benefitting their friend and you.
