Fresh and ready for anything, you are the captain of your ship.
Why Agile Results
I created Agile Results as a way to help you write your story forward. Getting results in today’s landscape is tough. Our world changes faster than we can keep up.
Worse, we don’t always learn the right skills we need such as time management, focus, or simple productivity.

understands the value of momentum in making your moments count.”
— Dr. Rick Kirschner, bestselling author
Hi, I’m J.D. Meier …
I inspire the world through innovation, entrepreneurship, and personal development.
I help underdogs, leaders, and achievers explore and expand what they are capable of, while making the most of what they’ve already got. I have a passion for excellence and a passion for getting results.
I’m also a fan of better ways for better days.
I work through a wide variety of challenges and I learned that the ultimate game changer is this:
Life gets better with skill!
My super skill is sharing and scaling expertise. I do so through insights and actions in the form of timeless principles, success patterns, proven practices, and emerging practices.
Over the course of leading many projects, many teams, and many adventures, I learn how to get better results while balancing the multiple demands in life. I continuously invest in what I call my “Life Hot Spots Framework”, which are the big investment areas that shape our quality of life the most: Mind, Body, Emotions, Career, Financial, Relationships, and Fun.
I continue to study these Life Hot Spots on a quest for better insights and actions, for work and life. I’m a fan of finding and sharing the principles, patterns and proven practices that work in the real-world under extreme conditions.
Learning, Living, and Leading the Agile Way
By day, I lead innovation and help shape the future across a wide variety of industries. As part of my day job, I learn and lead the Agile Way. Each project is a new team, a new adventure, and there are new lessons learned.
I’m also an avid mentor inside and outside of work for leaders of all levels. I regularly work with several mentees to help them improve their effectiveness. This includes everything from improving communication skills to leadership skills or basic project management.
I’ve authored several technical books, where I write prescriptive guidance to share and scale patterns and practices for success. Getting Results the Agile Way is my first personal development book, and it’s designed to help you make the most of work and life, using success patterns. It’s also a highly effective time management system, and energy management system, too.
Better Energy, Better Results for Work and Life
I created Agile Results to give everybody an edge in work and life.
Agile Results is rooted in the school of hard knocks and real-world lessons from experimenting in cross-functional, high-impact, distributed teams around the world, testing what works and what doesn’t.
After all, better energy, better results.
I wanted to create a system that works for everyone. And I wanted to create a system that could stretch to fit extreme scenarios or shrink back down to size for simple scenarios.
So whether you are saving the world, learn something new, or simply just trying to have a better day, Agile Results is thee for you when you need it most.
Don’t break yourself against yet another productivity system. Agile Results is a flexible model to support you, your way. And, as Bruce Lee would say:
“Absorb what is useful, Discard what is not, Add what is uniquely your own.”
Agile for Life
In my early days, I started with Agile for software. Then I applied Agile for life. And now I’ve been applying Agile to the game of business for the last 10 years.
Agile results really is a results framework for work and life.
While my approach has been forged in the fire of the fast-moving software business, it’s been battle-tested in every arena around the globe.
Artists, athletes, business leaders, doctors, government leaders, students, teachers, musicians, social workers, Moms, Dads, and more, all over the world, have been using Agile Results to change their game.
You might say that Agile Results is kid tested, mother approved, and doctor tested while saving lives on the front line.
Enjoy the Journey
Best wishes for the adventures ahead and enjoy the journey and along the way.
