I recently got to present at the Quorum Qnections 23 conference in Las Vegas. Being able to show so many people what we have been working on for the last couple of years at EAG has been a high-point in my career – not just at EAG!
One of the priorities and traits to succeed at EAG is being, “Hungry”. Research and learn as much as you can about your subject area and never stop.
I have had the chance lately to brush up on some advanced SQL items: functions, stored procedures, etc.
My free time lately has been spent expanding my garden and enjoying the new varieties of plants growing this year.
I know how to knit and used to sell the knitting patterns I designed.
Lately, I have gone back to tracking my tasks and personal priorities on sticky notes. This helps me relax at the end of the day because I know the items that absolutely needed to get done are done and the rest can wait for tomorrow.
Since I have been gardening so much lately, I have been inspired by my plants this year. We had a late frost this year and my little seedlings just kept growing. There were a bunch of caterpillars that chewed them to the stem, and they just grew back even stronger. It helps me remember that we can both survive and thrive when life does not go our way.
Slow is smooth, smooth is fast – important to remember to slow down and do things right the first time!
My superpower is being able to breakdown a problem into smaller and more easily understood steps. This is useful when I start a big project. Being able to explain technical ideas to business users and get agreement on direction means we can deliver what’s actually needed.
