We Can Do Better

Here’s a list of several unhealthy habits in the workplace that are sometimes hard to break, software tester or not:

  • checking personal social networking sites too much
  • going to meetings in order to skip more important work
  • preparing presentations that are being read in meetings
  • always looking for manuals (or test cases) to follow
  • blaming other people for issues that needs to be addressed
  • working long hours to please the boss and to receive overtime pay
  • hiding mistakes in order to preserve a reputation
  • waiting for the next day to do something that we can today
  • using the status quo as an excuse not to take responsibility
  • failing to learn from broken strategies and tactics

Really, we can do better.
