Closing Out 2014

I’m writing this on Monday as I’ve been thinking about the year and what I’d like to do next year. More than ever I appreciate that plans and lists are important, but so is the ability and willingness to adapt as things change, A once a quarter plan/review has worked reasonably well for me. I hit some of my goals, missed others, grew some personally and maybe not as much professionally, though one always affects the other. I’ve enjoyed putting time into the local SQL community and will try to do so again in 2015, though probably in different ways than in 2014.

There are a few things I want to do and try next year, some things to finish, and I have to remember to focus more, to say no more, and to continue building the skills I’ll need for the next steps in life and career.

Wishing you all a safe holiday.
