Self Improvement

An Agile developer seeks new ways of doing things, while keeping existing skills as sharp as possible and maintaining a playful/experimental attitude. They know that ours is an ever changing world and they strive to be prepared to take advantage of anything new. They are both introspective and aware of what's going on around them, be it in the team, or the larger business context. They will take action to fix things that aren't right, and to help those who are in trouble.

Additionally, an agile team member recognizes that mastery comes only through deliberate practice, and is most easily attained when a person develops one's whole self. Being true to one's intrinsic motivation, keeping work/life balance, and maintaining healthy relationships with others both in and outside of one's own environment are all critical to self improvement.
