Most people watch a lot more television than six hours per week. What do I do with that time instead? I read books and blogs. I "tinker" with SSIS and SQL Server and software development. I study our craft and trends and tools.


Amen to that! Great article Andy!

Really nice article from one of the best. Thanks Andy.

The problem that I see with so many people isn't that they stopped learning. Rather it's they never started.

Andy,
You have been blessed with exceptional gifts!

Your ability to distill and communicate your knowledge is really remarkable, and it far exceeds most of your peers. Your skill is on par with the really exceptional textbook educators (that routinely charge $150-200 for their books). Your SSIS Stairway series was exceptional. (I printed the series and had it tape bound.) Have you ever considered expanding your communication skills to distilling the BI Semantic Model??


For me balance is an overrated luxury that I can't afford. I am in my late 50's and I am reinventing myself. Given the diminished runway, I am relentless in studying my craft.
