Weirdo's Weekly Update — 3 Jul, 2023

What are we working on?

This week we are starting with the Q3 quarter of our OKR iteration. I can’t believe how fast the months are rolling.

We are working on finalizing them today and starting with the new tasks. We are setting some high goals and more out-of-the-comfort-zone tasks for this quarter, so our OKRs must be thought through well and encouraged to meet the goals and daily planning aligned with the OKRs.

On this note, if you wonder about the exact difference between goal setting and planning, the graphic below can illuminate it.

Travel News

Let's talk about cultural etiquette today. Understanding and respecting cultural norms in the country where you plan to travel will enhance your experience and ensure harmonious interactions with the locals.

If we take Thailand for example, a tourist needs to show respect to the locals. When greeting people, use a polite gesture called the "wai" with a slight bow, especially to older or more important individuals. Remember to dress modestly, cover your body respectfully, and remove your shoes before entering religious places. Avoid pointing your feet at sacred objects, as it's considered impolite.

To avoid conflicts, stay calm and not raise your voice publicly. Show respect to the Thai monarchy and refrain from making negative comments about the royal family. When dining, wait for the host or the eldest person to start eating before you do. You can use a spoon and fork or learn how to use chopsticks. Sharing food is encouraged, so try different dishes and enjoy the communal dining experience.

Productivity Tips and Tricks

Stand-up meetings, or daily scrums, are brief, regular check-ins in agile project management. Especially if you are working in a remote team, you can use stand-ups for enhanced productivity by improving communication and accountability among team members. These meetings help with transparency and timely issue resolution, allowing team members to share updates, address challenges, and collaborate effectively.

Stand-up meetings encourage focus and prioritization, helping team members stay on track and adapt to changing requirements. However, their success relies on keeping them concise and using them as a starting point for further discussions and collaboration. Stand-up meetings support productivity by fostering communication, collaboration, and agility within teams.
