On the first break of day four of the SQLskills.com Immersion Event training, I am contemplating the indelible mark this training has left on my career. Every training should leave a mark, hopefully for the better and hopefully not a scar.
From this training, I have learned too many things to quantify into one blog, but there are two quotes that will probably never leave my career:
“Just because you can, doesn’t mean you should!”
And the quote that followed most questions asked in the class: “…it depends!” which was followed with at least two opposing view points depending upon the situation.
These two quotes have really changed my perspective on how I answer or solve problems on a day to day basis. Instead of taking a limited, mostly narrow focus based upon my knowledge and experience, I should take a more encompassing approach based upon the problem and the ramifications of the various solutions. How do you approach your DBA problems?
