And so it begins…..

After attending SQLAndy’s SQL Saturday session on “Building a Professional Development Plan” a couple of months ago, I have been determined to develop my own Professional Development Plan.  Over the next week or so, I will be formulating this plan here on this blog.   At this point, I have a few goals for 2012 to begin the discussion.

  1. I want to dedicate time everyday to this blog and giving back to the SQL community that has helped me so much over the years.
  2. I want to continue to dedicate time to the SQL community in social media.
  3. I want to attend at least ten events this year consisting of SQL Saturdays, training, code camps, and possible SQL Rally and/or SQL PASS.

Stay tuned as we formulate this plan….

  1. And so it does begin! Excellent ideas! I have a similar plan. I’ll see you along the way!

  2. May I also recommend presenting at either a user group meeting or a a SQL Saturday? It’s a hell of a challenge and the benefits are huge. I can’t recommend it enough, plus it gives you something to blog about.

    Good luck on your goals in 2012!

    • I’m working on the courage to do that as I’m not much of a public speaker. I’ve been trying to find a niche in the SQL DBA world because I think it would be easier to speak about something that you knew very well. Thanks for the comment.
