Goals for 2010

It’s that time of year so here’s a quick blog post so that I can track how well I achieve my goals for 2010

My goals for 2010 are pretty simple.

  • Spend more time with my daughter
  • Finish reading my PowerShell In Action book
  • Help run and market a very successful year of the App Dev Virtual Chapter for PASS
  • Not Die
    • (It’s George Carlin’s secret to life after all)
  • Get certified in Hyper-V: Windows Server 2008 R2, Server Virtualization
  • Do at least 4 different speaking engagements on at least 5 different topics
    • (meaning: User Group, Lunch-N-Learn, SQL Saturday, SQL Lunch, Code Camp??)
  • Use PowerPivot at least once before May
  • Read a second PowerShell book from cover-to-cover
  • Get at least one report to do something/anything with Map Point 2009
  • Show the value of community so that I can get my company to pay to send me to the PASS Summit once again.
  • Write a scathing review on every book that I read
    • Just checking to see if you’re really paying attention
  • Get every db in my current company upgraded to SQL Server 2008 SP2
  • Get my backyard back under control
  • Convince PASS to move the 2011 Summit to somewhere within the Eastern or Central Time Zones.
  • And of course: drop 20 pounds.

And why am I bothering to post this you might ask?  Well I hear the way to make God laugh is to tell him your plan.  🙂

  1. I’m going to write scathing reviews on AT LEAST two PowerShell books, maybe more. Maybe even one on an SSIS book 😀
