End of year planning: T-SQL Tuesday #157

It’s the end of the year already, 2022 has really flown by. To see what we have left this year, Garry Bargsley (blog|twitter) has asked us what we have planned for the end of the year?

It’s been quite the year, but that’s for another blog. But it does relate to what’s planned for the last part of this year. I’ve got some small project work left over and two days of training to give. After that, my holidays start where the main appointments are with the kitchen to make time and cook nice food and snacks. With the tv/radio for the national tradition of watching radio being made with the 2000 best songs ever made according to the listeners. With my son to build some nice Lego things, fool around, teach him to cook or whatever. With my wife, mother and son to go out for a walk and just be together.

Anything work-related? My personal challenge this year is not to do that. I’ve fallen into the trap of just looking into something and diving in deep before I know it. January will be the moment where I”l know if I made it or not. Before I leave I’ll try and as much finished as possible. What I can’t get done will either travel with me to the next year or I’ll make sure the people working over the holidays are informed on what to do. I’m not in the habit of doing extra or special maintenance just because it’s the end of the year. Some clients like to purge a year of data but usually not at the end of the year but more likely at the beginning of the new year. These jobs will hold to the next year.

The last part of the year can be the time to look back, to look forward but don’t forget to live in the moment and enjoy those moments. Before you know it, they’re gone and as far as I know, there’s no way to travel time and relive the moments live.
