First Post

photo of Allen HighnoteOk, let’s  get this over with.  Woopie.  Here it is, the first post.  Yadada. Yadada. Yadada.  By-the-way, that’s me in the photo.  Just thought I should say Hi!  See my About page if you’re looking for more.

What else can you say?

I plan on writing about software development, team building, mentoring, project management, and just about anything related to software and development projects.  I promise no politics, drama, or abusive behavior.

By the way, if you can’t tell if  I’m serious or not, “not” is your best bet!  I have been known to, on occasion, say the exact opposite of what I really mean just to keep you on your toes!  My sense of humor is pretty dry and sharp.  I’ll try to keep the snarkyness to a minimum.

Today’s tip:  Practice listening.  Whenever I’m struggling in my relationships, I try and take a little extra time and try and do a little better job of understanding exactly what the other person is trying to say.  That doesn’t mean that I will (or will not) agree with them.  I’m just going to give our relationship the best chance at succeeding or improving.  BTW, I’ve mastered none of these tips; they are all works-in-progress!
