Skiing is to Vancouver as Tables are to SQL Server
Okay… Perhaps, a bold statement. I remember the first time I skied like it was yesterday. It truly brings back memories of child hood friends, hot chocolate in the cafeteria after a long day on the hill. I have always enjoyed skiing, and never seem to take the time to indulge and have some “Me time” on the slopes. We are often to quick to put off for another day the opportunities that give us joy – they will be there tomorrow.
STOP THAT NOW! Book of Friday February the 15th and treat yourself to a day on the slopes… Yes, NOW… Call HR, talk with the boss, check you vacation allotment – just make it happen! No more excuses.
Don’t tell me that you haven’t skied for over a decade, or ever before. They have 1/2 day lessons that can get you started, or hone you technique. No more excuses.
I’m going up to Grouse Mountain with Jamie Greenhough (t/in) and what will likely be a dozen or so other people and everyone is invited. Bring your spouse, child, parent, co-worker, or just come alone, there will be plenty of people to talk with.
Send me an email an get your name on our list, we want to see you on the slopes on Friday, then down to some serious learning and networking on Saturday. You deserve a break to make up for all of the “work” that you are going to do at #SQLSat198. No more excuses.
BTW, I was in Grade 6 at Richardson Elementary School, and I was a little nervous that many of my friends already knew how to ski. Today I have many stories I can bore you with for hours, but I won’t, I don want to give you an excuse
See you on the Slopes!
