XP: discipline is not enough

XP works if you are disciplined AND have a supportive environment. If you don't have a supportive environment, discipline isn't enough. If you do have a supportive environment, you still need some discipline.
You can say XP is successful if you want to do another project using XP. In a non-supportive environment, you might, with a lot of discipline, be able to ship on time, have few bugs, etc., but end up feeling like you don't want to do it again. You could just descend in mediocrity like everyone else and still get the same paycheck as everyone else. - Keith Ray
