When planning out your sprint and taking your journey to completing your EPIC quest, new things always come up. In the tech industry we call that "scope creep". It's a real thing! So how do we manage those new items and how do we track them and make sure they get done?
Enter the backlog.
A backlog is a list of tasks or action items required to support your larger plan and EPIC. In a personal development context, it contains a prioritized list of items that the you have acknowledged that you need to work on or pay attention to next.
