The effect of Scrum on my personal life

I have been using Scrum process (in pure, hybrid, improper, dirty and all possible ways) for 3+ years. While several organisations are trying to adopt Scrum, there is another sector throwing out reasons why they failed in Scrum.

I am not a process maniac, I like to adopt simple processes that focus on goals.

Scrum has changed me in a way. I have few hobbies and there is always something to buy. I make a list and seek for budget approval from home ministry and the obvious answer is no. I was wondering why I shouldn’t have a scrum board on my fridge and prioritise the things I have to buy. I can tell the budget minister if I bring an item to the top and seek slightly faster approval. It will also give me a chance to see the whole picture of what I have to buy in the coming days. Will this not work? I may not buy the things but the board and evening stand up meetings will definitely work. 🙂
