Why I care about Fuel....
A few weeks ago I heard from a woman who receives my email newsletter. In them, she’d read about Fuel so much, she told me she had a question. Why do I care about Fuel so much? It’s a good question.
Why have I spent so much of the last twelve months excited about Fuel?
Because I want people to carve out work lives around who they really are and what makes them tick. I meet lots of people in jobs who haven’t woken up to this yet. They think there is only one way of living their work lives. They forget they can design their work life around them. I want to open their eyes!
Because we end up teaching what we needed when we were younger. One reason I reached a point of no return when I quit my job in 1999 was because I didn’t think about fuel. I was running on empty. And if you’re trying to run on empty, you’ll break down. If I had paid attention to the fuel I needed then, I truly believe I would have been okay.
Because the last nineteen years adventure in my career have been - de facto - an experiment in HOW to work. I have played around with what ingredients produce the best ideas, what difference time of day makes to doing tasks, with a whole load of stuff. Now I have a tool box of best-practice tips and ideas to share with the world, from my 1,016 weeks (and counting) working agile.
And those three reasons are exactly why I care about Fuel.
