Realizing that perhaps SOME entry is better than no entry, I figure I’d write a short one.
This weekend, spend about 27 hours in NYC with my wife Randi. While one goal of the trip was definitely a min-vacation, the actual impetus was again a SQL Saturday. Again, I was selected to present my talk, “Tips that Saved My Bacon”. Apparently it was well received since the people nice enough to give feedback on the provided forms gave me top notches across the board.
While that’s always refreshing, it does make me wonder about what the other folks thought. Did they go away satisfied, feeling that there was no useful feedback to provider? Or did they feel they couldn’t provide information since I might be insulted? Or did they simply not bother? I’ll never know.
I’ll say now, that good feedback is always appreciated by me. (And feedback that I’m good is always an ego boost 🙂
But, this weekend got me thinking about my weekends this year. I’ll have spent at least 15 days on Cave Rescue stuff (several weekends plus a week of teaching) and at least 4 SQL Saturdays (Chicago (passed), New York City (passed), Philadelphia and Albany) and 3 days at SQL Summit. So that’s 26 days at least donating time to organizations that I believe strongly in.
What do you do with your time?
