(This post is an extension to the previous article, "The Agile Mindset - Socrates and Aporia," part of an on-going series dedicated to developing Agile mastery. It is for paid subscribers and includes additional material - sometimes brief, sometimes lengthy - to help deepen the reader's understanding of the ideas presented in the lead article.)
The lead article's exercise was to invest several days physically writing out your responses and reactions to the following questions and challenges.
Do you seek new experiences and places or do you prefer familiar surroundings and a predictable routine? Describe in at least two hand-written pages the top three experiences you can recall that clearly demonstrate your particular preference.
How many tabs are open in your web browser right now? In at least one hand-written page, describe as many areas of interest that are represented in this collection of tabs. Are there two or three general themes that you can see across all the tabs that are open?
In at least one hand-written page, write out how you would go about designing a spice rack for a blind person.
