What constitutes a good week for you?



Finishing a week on this side of the grass is a great start. ;-)

I think a week is what you make of it. I think too many people remember obstacles, arguments, and other negative things. I think I've had a good week if I can look at myself in the mirror and say "I did the best I know how and I learned how to do better on some things." That's pretty much every week regardless of the problems I may have had.

--Jeff Moden

RBAR is pronounced ree-bar and is a Modenism for Row-By-Agonizing-Row.
First step towards the paradigm shift of writing Set Based code:
Stop thinking about what you want to do to a row... think, instead, of what you want to do to a column.
If you think its expensive to hire a professional to do the job, wait until you hire an amateur. -- Red Adair

A good week is one where our business leads actually generate some work for us.

I think for me, being new to SQL, most weeks seem to be good weeks, as i'm learning new things and increasing my skill set that little bit more. :-D

When I get told the bonus is in the bag? (Yes, this week) ;-) Never going to be bad.

I think I tend to like work just to tick along gently really. No 'solution starting points' as one might put it, requiring rapid intervention. I'm happy if I can just improve my picture of how to keep structures as elegant and easily maintainable as possible. It is nice to dream up a great new cross cutting structure that makes a job simple and as fool proof as can be, or offer advice that re-energises someone else's thnking on a project, but these are not things you can achieve all the time - and I have been doing this job long enough now to instantly know how to achieve most goals set from past experience. The cherry is that little bit of clearer thinking when you just smooth the path a little more.

I guess I enjoy weeks for other stuff - kids achievements, a good time on my bike, winning all my games at squash, my team doing well. If work is totally forgettable I can definitely cope!

I ve had a good week if it leaves me relaxed and looking forward to the next one. As long as things r moving in the same direction its all goood.

While I dont do anything special to ensure a good week. Ive noticed that a lil planning and an easy going nature ,help a lot.

A good week is when I've got some hair left at the end of it :-)
But seriously, a little patience, a little learning and it's all good.
