Reviewing My Resolutions at the End of 9 Months of the Year 2012 (3rd Calendar Quarter)

In the beginning of the year I had made some resolutions I had made few resolutions around various aspects like Certifications, Community Contributions, and Trainings etc. It’s again time to review those resolutions to see how am I doing 🙂

Certification

In the first quarter of this year, I have completed MCTS 70-448 exam and in the second quarter, I completed 70-452. So after completion of these two certifications, I am an MCITP (Microsoft Certified IT Professional) now. So things are on track on this front 🙂

Blogging

I always wanted to do blogging consistently, be it on this blog or other community websites, I have tried to be consistent and I have been pretty successful at that. In this last quarter, I have published the following articles tips and articles:

So I am pretty much on track on this front and I will try to be more consistent and frequent in the coming days.

Community Contributions

Due to my tight schedule, haven’t been able to contribute much on the TechNet forums. Will try to be active on that front in the coming days.

Here is a quick snapshot of the progress from the beginning of the year.

Trainings/Sessions

Delivered a session on T-SQL Enhancements in SQL Server 2012 and got a very good response. As part of this, I am also writing a series of articles on Enhancements in SQL Server 2012.

Weight Loss

Haven’t really put more efforts on this front but still have been able to keep my weight at the same with no gain and no loss. However, I have been working on certain things like a regular walk etc. to keep myself more healthy and feeling good about the results. In fact walking is a very good exercise as it offers countless benefits including weight loss, improves mood, reduces stress, and a lot more. Here is a quick snapshot of some of the benefits walking offers.

Other Updates

Participated in a contest on SQLAuthority Blog and received a 5 Book Series of Joes2Pros (Full story here). Those are really awesome books and I am enjoying reading them.

So far so good. Let me continue to work towards my resolutions so that I can make newer resolutions in the coming year 🙂
