Daily Coping 14 Oct 2020

I started to add a daily coping tip to the SQLServerCentral newsletter and to the Community Circle, which is helping me deal with the issues in the world. I’m adding my responses for each day here.

Today’s tip is to do something to overcome an obstacle you are facing.

ob·sta·cle /ˈäbstək(ə)l/ – a thing that blocks one’s way or prevents or hinders progress.

I’ve got speaking engagements coming up. Virtual ones, but still, I have to be ready. To be ready, I need to record the sessions. To record them, I need to practice and prep.

I also lost time because I need to get these things done not by the event, but a couple weeks ahead of time. I also have a vacation scheduled.

I took some time and closed down most things to focus on the main obstacle for moving forward: Powerpoint.

The big issue is getting the outline into PPT with some slides and starting a flow. From there, as I practice, I’ll refine the talk and slides and get ready to record.
