One of the things that I love most about Scrum is its relentless focus on prioritization. It’s so central to the idea of Scrum that an entire accountability is dedicated to it. Over the last year, I’ve leaned in to consciously using ideas from Agile and Scrum in my personal and professional life, beyond my Scrum Teams.
This is spot. on. and I'm so glad you took the time you needed for you. I lived in Japan and know exactly what it feels like to never quite feel at home. I feel honored that writing to us helps. For me, it was finding little pieces of home where I could and then embracing the culture of my new home where I couldn't. It's a journey for sure. At any rate! Welcome back!! I hope all is well!
