Weeknote 289: getting together

This week I have learned:

  • I’m using the phrase “skin in the game” way too much. Alternative metaphors requested.
  • Maybe the best way to prioritize initiatives in organizations is to go for those ones for which people outside of tech teams are willing to put “skin in the game”
  • (See what I mean?)
  • Organizing events is a monstrous ball-ache…
  • …but the reward when they come off is huge
  • Next week I’m hoping to be able to increase the size of my team by 100%
  • it’s necessary because I’m starting to have attitude problems with the team as it stands
  • (just for clarification, I’m in a team of one)

Next week: the planning begins for the next big thing. Or things.
