Ep. 211 : What Are Bricks? Mission Critical Tasks to Win the Day

Ep. 211 : What Are Bricks? Mission Critical Tasks to Win the Day

January 15, 2021

So far in this series we have talked about EPICS, Sprints and Stories. This is the next step and the most important step in the entire process.

The Agile and Scrum methodologies were missing out on this, and that's why I fixed it. If you want to go back and listen to the previous episodes go right ahead, after all they will help you better understand this episode and you will get the most of your year, and will see the most progress. However, if you have to listen to only one podcast I ever do, this is the one.

This is not the end, but the half way point. Next up will cover scoring, backlog and icebox - but none of those matter in comparison this episode.


We Cover:

  • What is a brick?
  • Why bricks are important
  • How bricks play into stories
  • Why stories are too high level
  • How bricks keeps you focused
  • How many bricks are too many
  • What to do when a new brick comes in to screw up your day
  • The 1:00 feeling and how to overcome it

Ep 209 Write Your Story: Creating Stories to Define Your Epics

Ep 209 Write Your Story: Creating Stories to Define Your Epics

January 8, 2021

Welcome to the next step in our EPIC journey and tackling those goals we have established for ourselves. The next stage here are Stories.

Stories are short stories that make up your Epic journey.

They are the things you wish to accomplish, that don’t necessarily need to be daily tasks or actions (although some of them will be).

In Business these could be prepping for meetings, actions needed to take towards developing and application (like building out the user navigation for example), and then Outside of business and in your personal life this could be something you wish to hit in a 2 to 3 week period.

208: Crush Your Goals, Guaranteed.(What’s a Sprint?)

208: Crush Your Goals, Guaranteed.(What’s a Sprint?)

January 1, 2021

Now 2021 is here. We have our marathon, no pun intended – in our EPIC.

So now what?

Well, Lets talk about Sprints.

In a previous episode I talked about what an epic is and the reasoning behind them. With the new Year here, your resolutions should become your epics – or at least influence them. I tend to stay away from EPICs that I can’t directly control or that hold one time endings.

That’s where sprints come in.

A Sprint is a two week period where you should be attacking your goals. These sprints are made up of measurable tasks that we chip away at on a daily basis through Bricks. But how do Sprints work?

Allow me to introduce the ceremonies. Three ceremonies that will change the way you approach your goals forever.

Why Kill Santa? Do you really need the credit?

Why Kill Santa? Do you really need the credit?

December 18, 2020

The Santa Spotlight is something that people have been debating in recent years. This idea that Santa shouldn’t get all the credit for gifts because it promotes the idea that the parents didn’t work hard for the gifts, and instead spotlights some unknown magic where the children are instead ungrateful to their parents.

As projects and years come to a close there are two ways we can approach the end of Quarter and the end of year. One, we can grab for each bit of credit, after all as business owners, managers and entrepreneurs – isn’t credit due to those in charge? 

Or we can do what a good manager and leaders do – and give the credit to the magic of the team, the company – the metaphorical Santa.
