Conquering Your Fears

There is no greater feeling than being able to overcome and conquer your fears. 

Scared of skydiving? Great, so is half the population but that doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t do it. 

In fact, if you’re scared of doing it, then its even better reason for you to man up, grow some balls and face your fears. You will be giving yourself so many self high-fives as you feel empowered and accomplished after.

MORE IDEAS FROM 7 Reasons Why You Should Go Skydiving At Least Once in Your Life

Satisfy Your Dream of Flying

Every single one of us has one point or another dreamt of being able to fly. 

As soon as you are 13,000 feet up in the air, you jump off and free-fall into the clouds for about a minute. During this time, you feel pretty invincible. Like superman on steroids (if that’s even possible) and in that infinite moment, you can truly say that you are flying.

The Incomparable Feeling of Excitement and Thrill

There is nothing as liberating and exciting as throwing yourself off a moving plane. NOTHING.

It is certainly one of those pull-out stops minutes where the sensation of expectation and sitting tight for the leap is developing. Simply the prospect of bouncing makes your heartbeat quicker than a little school kid who is enamored.

Epic Photos as Proof of Your Madness Braveness

What better approach to demonstrate your dauntlessness than by having an epic second caught on camera? 

Be cautioned however that practically nobody looks incredible when skydiving. On the off chance that you ended up getting a decent shot or two, feel extremely grateful.

Whether you’re an adrenaline junkie or a regular person who works in an office and likes cats, skydiving is an adventure of a lifetime that can bring some excitement and thrill into your life.

Feeling of Letting Go

Skydiving is one of those activities where you place your life in the hands of a complete stranger.

For people with control issues, experience the feeling of letting go as you willfully fall into oblivion (literally). Not only is it empowering, but it also feels pretty good to just let go.

Why Saving Is Important

Saving money takes discipline. And a certain amount of sacrifice.

The importance of saving money is rarely disputed. Saving is one of the most basic bits of financial advice out there. Despite the importance of saving money, many of us aren’t following through on that tip. When it comes to doing the right thing financially, just knowing you should save isn’t enough.

And that makes sense. It’s tough to do something consistently without understanding why you should save money and put in all that effort in the first place. After all, saving money takes discipline and a certain amount of sacrifice.

Dreams Provide Sketches For Wise Thinking.

When you were a kid, you dreamed of having an extraordinary life and having your dream job. Your dreams might have changed over the years, adapted as your interests changed or developed, or they might have stayed the same. Either way, you must never give up on your dreams.

The pursuit of your goals is the most memorable and meaningful experience you’ll go through. You’ll learn so much, meet new people, and experience things you wouldn’t have otherwise.

With effort and determination, your life could turn out better than you could have ever dreamed of.

1. Planning Poker: All participants use numbered playing cards and estimate the items. Voting is done anonymous and discussion is raised when there are large differences. Voting is repeated till the whole team reached consensus about the accurate estimation. Planning poker works well when you have to estimate a relative small number of items (max 10) in a small team (5-8 people). Tip: try to keep the voting between affordable numbers. Maximize the highest card to 13 points. More on planning poker via this link. 

2. T-shirt Sizing: This is a perfect technique for estimating a large backlog of relative large items. Especially when you have several concurrent scrum teams working on the same product. Items are estimated into t-shirt sizes: XS, S, M, L, XL. The decision about the size is based on an open and mutual collaborative discussion. This method is an informal and quick way to get an rough feeling about the total size of your backlog. More about T-shirt size estimation is here.

3. Dot Voting: When you are faced with a relative small set of items and in need of a super simple and effective technique to estimate you can use Dot Voting. This method has originated form decision making and you can use it for estimating. Each person gets a small number of small stickers and can choose to vote for the individual items. The more dots is an indicator of a bigger size. Works well in both small and large group. You have to limit the number of estimated items. More on dot voting here.

These are different methods you can use to make agile estimation more efficient and an inspiring team effort. Please share your experiences with this below in the comments section.
