It doesn’t matter what kind of car you own, a modern Tesla or a rusted out Ford pickup, you need to take care of it. If all you do is drive it and park it and drive it and park it, chances are that car isn’t going to last. You need to give that car some love. Sure you might love your car a lot. I know a few of those people but at the very least let your car know that you are thinking of it with good intentions.
Car attention means changing the oil when needed. A car wash here or there is always appreciated. A good spring vacuum works. Checking the air in your tires can go a long ways to building a good car relationship. It’s important to do minimal maintenance on things you own. I think we can all agree on that.
Consider refining sessions in the agile world like important car maintenance. The more effort the team puts into their stories, the easier those stories will be able to do. Unfortunately it can be easy for teams to not take the refining sessions seriously. Give your stories a little love at refinement and watch how those stories treat you during the sprint. You get what you give.
