Thirty Days to Better Software
In Thirty Days to Better Software J.T. King blogs about Alistair Cockburn's Reflective Improvement practice can be combined with Steve Pavlina's "30 Days to Success" concept. Cockburn believes that you should take the time every so often to consider how you could improve the way that you work. For example, perhaps you want to consider adopting the practice of test-first development to improve the quality of your code or database refactoring to improve your database. Pavlina suggests that you try a new concept on a "30 day trial basis" in order to give it enough of a chance to work. King combines these two ideas in his blog. It's worth checking out.
