What brought me to write this post?
Back in 2013, I was looking to create a safe and practical space for Scrum Masters, Product Owners, raising Agile leaders from the Montreal Agile Community, where we can learn by sharing from each other experiences. The project was called Agile Open Space and it lasted 3 years sponsored by the company I was working with in that period of my life, that ended on October 2016. With the help of my friend Omar Bermudez first and then the enthusiastic Louise Kold Taylor, we hosted more than 12 events for a community of about 300 people.
At the beginning of 2019, I started the Scrum Masters Clinic #Montreal, one among many other existing and active Agile Montreal’s Community of Practice, with the firm intention to help with building the next generation of Agility Enablers in town and continue with I started in 2013, with a different maturity, more experiences to share and prepared to create something that could last.
Today, I am grateful. I have got the following two messages from a good friend of mine from the times when the Agile Open Space meetup was still alive, an active member of the Scrum Masters Clinic #Montreal since its creation:
I wanted to thank you because you helped me to be in the company that I'm working right now. My boss, knows you when I commentted abot you and the scrum sessions I attended at the Scrum Masters Clinic #Montreal.Thank you for sharing your daily experiences on your blog and help me realize that we are all connected, one way or another.

That has made me wonder:
- How mysterious life could be?
- How have I contributed with someone else today, by doing something 4 or 5 years ago?
- What a great feeling is to do something that fulfills your purpose in life and get others inspired because of your actions?
What if …
- I continue nurturing my passions by doing those things that I really care about?
- We do something today for ourselves that could benefit others tomorrow? How the world would be?
My invitation is to do something today that your future self will thank you for
I am grateful for being able to keep writing articles every day and for having people like you reading them. These are today’s questions to help you reflect about my invitation:
- What are you doing today that your future self will thank you for tomorrow?
- What’s holding you back to take action and do something that would make you feel connected, alive, more human?
Thank you for staying at home, saving lives and keeping yourself safe too.
Remember that we are incredibly better together, today more than ever!
