Don't let anyone tell you that you are too old to learn, too old to go back to school,  get that degree or do whatever it is you want to do. Never feel you have invested a certain amount in any setting so that you can't change that. That will not be wasted and you should not be afraid, you should go forward.... fearless." LinksLinda Rising's websiteBuyer's Remorse - Washing of HandsAgile 2011 (Salt Lake City) keynoteLinda Rising on Collaboration, Bonobos and The BrainBonobosLinda Rising: Prejudices Can Alter Team WorkDeception and Estimation: How We Fool OurselvesCognitive ScienceMRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging)CT Scans (X-ray Computed Tomography)Dan Areily - Predictably Irrational TED talkBehavioral EconomicsThe Agile Manifesto 10th Anniversary ReunionGrady BoochXPScrumAlistair CockburnCrystalDaily StandupsPair ProgrammingLeanContinuous DeliveryContinuous DesignSteve Denning - Customer DelightDan PinkJames Surowiecki - Wisdom of the Crowd Nigel Dalton - 6 decades of AgileBoeing 777Cabinet War RoomsDesign PatternFearless ChangeBrian MarickInfluence StrategiesSocial PsychologyRobert CialdiniSocial ProofRelated PodcastsThe Agile Revolution (Craig Smith is co-host on this one)The Brain Science PodcastOffice Hours (Dan Pink)Thanks to Craig Smith for joining us - Craig's intelligent questions were a good balance to Steve's :-)
