Different types of people in my team.

1. The one that works like terminator, without any kind of distractions, Focuses on the tasks for 8 continuous hours. Reports a perfect list of items completed in daily meeting. These are HIGHLY productive but not much creative thinking.

2. The one that slacks a bit & never come to work on time, but suggests something surprisingly new. Also gets the work done in top most perfection, but with a marginal slip of deadline, occasionally.

3. There were very few, who got the ability to focus, be productive & at the same time come up with new creative ideas. And they don't stay in the organization for long.

Now the abuse called stand up meeting everyday, It puts No.2 people in shame. Because they don't have a concrete work-log to showcase everyday, but on alternative days, they show the right progress balancing the previous day. And mostly done with better design/code etc.
Sometimes they spend most of the time on social networks & Whenever they don't have something to show, they feel a bit shrunken. I'm thinking why should we put them to shame everyday in the name of meeting, when they are completing them all, every alternative day. But my directors insist to have this practice everyday. I'm just thinking.

Starting to think people post kid pics in their profiles because that was the last time they were cute - Jeremy.
