Comments after reading Test First development blog

Today, I read this very interesting blog regarding Test first development, link is below.

There are something really draw my attentions:

1. the importance of creating an environment to make people do the right thing than to force them to do it. The right environment can be created through leading by example and assertive communication
2. Hiring by attitude, and train for skill.
3. he gave a magnificent example by citing a movie "A Few Good Men". He told that during an argument inside the court in the movie, someone quoted a rule. And then, Tom Cruise came with the rule book in his hand asking the other person to show him rules for each and everything that he did ( "You eat 3 times a day, can you show it in the rule book. Oh God, How can you eat 3 times a day when its not written in the rule book").
4. in the end, he said, sometimes its almost impossible to correct things and then you can say to yourself that its just a job. In my home, I can do and will do things exactly the way I like, however, in a job, this might not be the case.
