First Sprint is now closed and next one is actually already on-going (started 1st of July) . It means it’s time to report my plan for the second sprint! In the future I will try to do this 1st of each month. This being the last week at work before my summer vacation has messed up my personal schedules quite a lot : )
I started planning the Sprint #2 by reviewing my targets for the whole Period and my original sprint plan. After that I took into account the tasks that were leftovers from Sprint #1 and considered the impact of those, meaning if I should move something from the original Sprint #2 plan for Sprint #3 to keep this Sprint manageable. Last I detailed further the “to be planned later” tasks that weren’t yet clear when doing the original plan (e.g. now when I know which habits I will start tackling, I can also plan the tasks I need to cover).
- Running related tasks were easy to plan as I “just” need to finish the Cooper’s test which was left over from previous Sprint and start following my new 10km running program – as easy as that ; )
- On yoga related tasks I ended-up adding some challenge. In addition to having documentation as a leftover from previous Sprint, I also decided to try out all Intermediate level poses. Beginner’s poses were so basic that I don’t have much left to do with them in Sprint #2 anymore, thus I thought it’s nice to have a peak on the next level poses already now!
- From my bad habits I decided to first tackle the “Drinking enough water”. This is especially important during summer which made it good first task to cover in this Sprint that is scheduled for July.
- As a second habit I chose “Balancing Macro’s in my diet”. I thinks this is a foundation on fixing some of the other habits and thus it’s good to focus on it among the first ones. I’m not going to take much actions fixing it during this sprint (as main focus will be the drinking water) but I added myself few preparation / research tasks. These tasks are a bonus compared to my original Sprint #2 plan. I dared to take them in due to the fact that I will be on summer vacation majority of this Sprint which results to having more time to do my own stuff! Thus it will be easy and interesting to read a bit of this topic while relaxing on our summerhouse : )
Based on the above considerations I ended up having the following plan for Sprint #2:
With these tasks I will be then spending my Sprint #2 – in addition to enjoying the summer and my vacation on fullest! …which, by the way, are the main reasons why I didn’t choose the “Sucker obsession” to be on my fix-list for this sprint: I want to enjoy my summer ice-cream without bad conscious ; )
