Small victories

I’ve read a while back the famous Getting Real from 37signals. And I certainly liked the way they approach software building as something made by humans.

For a example, take the essay “Seek and Celebrate Small Victories“.

Well, I found that interesting. And I had a glimpse of the real benefit a while back, when I was able to divide a project into small, less-than-a-day tasks. So every day, we could go home by having finished at least one thing. An small (and quick) victory.

My small victory for today was just finishing teaching the first day of a course in the scheduled time and without problems, after some hard weeks preparing the materials. I left the classroom quite happy of the result.

So, if you have the chance/power to do so… schedule small victories for your team as frequently as you can.
