Growing or Dying? Your Choice!

This morning as I return back to my SQL boxes after a week of unrelated vendor training, I ponder the truth from Captain Willard in Apocalypse Now “every minute I stay in this room, I get weaker, and every minute Charlie squats in the bush, he gets stronger.”  In other words, every minute I work on some other task, my SQL Server skills are diminishing.  This is a sad truth mainly because some tasks are inevitable and must be completed.  However, we must combat the atrophy with additional training and flexing our proverbial SQL muscles at every opportunity within an adequate life balance, of course.

How can I flex my SQL muscle today?  I think I will watch some MCM videos to thoroughly work out the muscles.  Enjoy!
