For 10 years I have been using an adapted version of Scrum to organise my personal and professional life. I call this the Personal Scrum System. The Personal Scrum System is simple and it can help you achieve your Goals, whatever they might be.

Many people do not take the time to stop and think about what they want, what success would look like for them, and what Goals they need to set and achieve to get that success. This is a mistake. If you drift through life without Goals and a strategy to reach them, it is far less likely that you will get what you want. You will more likely be at the mercy of others and will spend your time helping them achieve their Goals and helping them become successful.

The Personal Scrum System will change that. It requires that you decide what success looks like for you, set your Goals, and then start working towards them. The effort will come from you, but the system will help ensure you direct your efforts correctly and maintain focus over the long term.

The Personal Scrum System is based on the Scrum framework created by Ken Schwaber and Jeff Sutherland. I believe it has huge potential to help people. Do you want to find out more? You can learn more via our Personal Scrum Guide and the Personal Scrum Book.
