Discussion on: Does your background make your work unique?

I've been playing rugby all my life and I firmly say yes!
Rugby taught me a lot about team working, decision making, crise management, constant improvement, dealing with failures.
As a developer, I cannot even count how many times this saved me at work. And this is true even for tech stuff, not only with people management.

SO true! I also practiced a lot of team sports, like handball, when I was younger and the most important lessons I got from that, I believe, are discipline and how to deal with failure.
Thank you, Emanuele!
