Agile and Lean Software Development: Mastering the Art of Change


Whatever, your talent, your internal desire will pull you past obstacles because of the motivation that was born and lives deeply within you. Other people cannot really motivate you, and it isn't the books you read that make you successful. People and books can light your fire if there a passion and a motive already inside you. They can guide you and awaken valuable insights. But it's your choice to move or stay where you are.”
