Make the Time!

Learning SQL Server can be a full-time job.  I hear from people in the IT community all the time that say they would love to learn SQL Server or some other cool technology….wait a minute, there is no other cool technology so strike that last comment.  The response I give to them is simple:  MAKE THE TIME!

If you want to remain gainfully employed it is necessary to take a proactive approach to continuing education.  You cannot avoid doing this on your own, unless your employer sends you to several training classes every year.  I love going to training classes!  There I said it, I love training!  On a routine basis, I beg my employer to send me to training and not just because I enjoy travel and hotel living.  I love training classes!  MAKE THE TIME!

In order to become a better DBA or programmer, you are going to need to spend time outside of work learning about SQL Server either through SQL Saturday, Code Camps, blogging or tweeting!  MAKE THE TIME!
