I would like to publicly thank everyone who sent me birthday wishes. Gotta love Facebook, Google+ and all of the other places that broadcast your birthday to the world. It's actually pretty cool to hear from people I haven't talked to in a while. Rather than go into details about how I ate durian fruit or how I was convinced my wife hired a belly dancer for our dinner date with friends, I'll focus on the good stuff. Not only did I score several containers of coffee, but I also got a physical copy of Personal Kanban from my parents. I have Jim and Tonianne's Kindle version of Personal Kanban but sometimes when you really like something, you just have to have a physical copy. I honestly didn't think I was that sentimental.
My son and I also got matching white boards to help us navigate our lives. So, if you're thinking of a stocking stuffer this year, get that special person a copy of Personal Kanban and some post-its. They'll be glad you did.
Oh, and if you look in the background of the photo, you'll see my wife has LeanKit Kanban up on her screen. Ya, we're a weird family.
