Just a little respect – It’s about Being Agile

Everyday we get up, get ready, ride our car/public transportation, go to work, to matter, to make someone’s day and after a hard day return home. At every single step there are  various elements that are a part of our life and interaction. One very important one – Humans.

Be it family, friends, co-workers, travelers on the road/public transport – Humans. Yeah, different race, religion etc. – but humans. Every one of us is unique.

We all are marching together to accomplish something – To work. That work – believe it or NOT, affects humans – mostly in a positive way. We as a community are engaged in solving problems for each other, trying to make this journey called life a little simpler. So, if I am supposed to work on something that benefits others, I would myself like to be in a positive frame of mind. When I am feeling good, I have seen it influence positive vibe with others whom I interact.

I am not here to lecture on world peace. Most of the people reading this article and blog, I assume, are adults. Some leaders, agile enthusiasts and great human beings. I just wanted to share a simple message – before we honk at someone, before we shout at a colleague, team member or anyone, before cutting in the line while driving, before showing that finger because someone is not driving the way WE want them to drive – let’s take a moment: breathe, think and then react.

AgileScout blog is not just about agile, but it is about that scout in everyone of us. I’ve been one. I always will be. As a scout, I was taught to respect people and I always will. How about you?

Munch over this thought, while I cook something else for us.

      It takes courage to admit and correct. Thanks for leading the way, Robb. Appreciate you taking time to check in with us here. What else can we do to make things better?
