10 things I can do to be a better employee this quarter

    1. Be proactive about following agile processes

    I’m not a huge fan of this way of doing things, but it is the way the company is going.

    2. Be proactive when giving advice to QA and review tickets before they start working on them

    When I do this, it turns out well. I should do it more often.

    3. Begin work to collaborate with this new group

    It seems as though I’m almost part of a skunk works.

    4. Meet early and often with the direction that people want code to go in

    I need to figure out who the architect is and what direction we are going to go in

    5. Really figure out who the decision-maker is

    6. Make sure that I am online and available during work hours

    In the past few weeks, I have done too much attending meetings while on my phone. While it is not that big a deal, it is better to be at my desk.

    7. Stop trying to multitask during meetings

    I just did this today. I fixed an issue during a meeting, but I was not fully present during the meeting and probably missed some elements.

    8. Be proactive about setting full trajectory of work projects to make sure that they can be brought in on time

    9. Work hard upfront to make sure that projects can be broken down into small enough chunks so they can be finished in a Sprint

    10. Go back to taking daily notes and a weekly Postmortem

    This worked out pretty well when I did it, but I didn’t do it long enough for the habit to stick
