The odd socks principle.


I wear odd socks most days, but no one knows because they're hidden inside my shoes.

It saves me time and it makes me happy, but no one else needs to know.

Sometimes, in work and life, when you're doing something odd - like Agile or TOC, say, or a fondness for Neil Diamond - there are ways to be odd, to share the benefits of being odd, without making a big fuss about the oddness.
