The Data Resolutions

By Steve Jones,

Making a new year's resolution is an annual tradition for many people on January 1. Breaking those resolutions seems to be another annual tradition that often takes place during the month of January as we struggle to live up to the changes that many of us often want to make in our lives. 

It's the last Friday of the year, and rather than ask you about the resolutions you are making overall, I wanted to ask this question:

What would you like to do differently in your career in 2012?

It's easy, and I hope it makes you think a little about where you want to go ni the future. Are you looking to move to a new job, a new kind of work with SQL Server? Do you want to learn more about some aspect of SQL Server? Do you want to get out of technology?

As you think about what you might do differently in 2012, it's not always about growth. Perhaps 2012 is a year where you slow down a bit and maintain some skills, or even reduce your hours as you spend time on something outside of work.

For me 2012 will be a slower year. After attending over a dozen events in 2011, I am planning on many fewer in 2012. My wife's career will take a little more precedence over mine, and I'll concentrate on writing more, and bringing you more news, knowledge, and training as SQL Server 2012 is released.

Happy New Year, be safe and responsible over the weekend and I will see you in 2012.
