Agile Self Development

A session at SXSW Interactive 2011

Saturday 12th March, 2011

11:00am to 12:00pm (CST)

Know how to use an iterative, incremental framework to create improvements in software? You can use those mad skillz to make your life more awesome too! Come learn and share how agile techniques can be used to achieve personal goals and lower your stress – and even to get the most out of SXSW. Walk away with immediate, practical, positive actions you can take. Ideas to discuss:

• What day-to-day or minute-to-minute techniques will allow me to satisfy shorter-term goals while building up to bigger progress?
• How can I exploit my little monkey brain to get it to actually do stuff that will make my life better?
• How can I stay aligned to the big picture while working on today's challenges?

Tags: productivity, agile, lifehacks, happiness, self-development

LEVEL: Intermediate
