After years of kicking off strategy projects, I still get the anxiety just before I start a new project. Partners, do you still get this anxiety or no?

Anxiety is inherent and is fuled by our inability to anticipate the unknown and the factors that are outside our control. It will never will go away completely, but your ability to control it will only get better if you actively work on identifying your personal triggers.

You will always be anxious. You only get better at managing it. And until that point, you just have to get better at hiding it.

It’s part of the grind. Accept the process for what it is and visualise your success. Look in the mirror before the kick off and recite your mantra.

This question might anger some, but not meant to be provoking. Does anyone else feel that half the jobs in tech (scrum master, project manager, product manager, etc.) are more hindering than helpful? I feel like productivity would sky rocket if we didn’t have 10+ hours a week added of admin work/agile ceremonies/status meetings, and you just let developers and analysts do their job. Why are we spending hours learning how to estimate story points (for example) rather than improving production?
