Goal Progress for Feb 2022

I set goals at the beginning of the year, and I’m tracking my progress in these updates during 2022.

February became more of a work month for me, and a somewhat busy month outside of work with life. I didn’t do enough on my career, and am more stalled than I’d like. I let distractions take over more than I should, and I felt a bit bad at the end of the month, rushing through some things the last week of Feb to make a little progress.

I’m slowing down, but at least I did something. I’m lowering the grade because I just didn’t do enough.

Grade: C+

Here are the goals:


  • DP-900 – Passed
  • DP-300
    – Stated studying, practice tests around 60% correct
  • Demo with SQL Server – 5%
  • Demo with PostgreSQL – 0%
  • Demo with MySQL – 0%
  • Feedback book – 72%
  • Good Strategy/Bad Strategy – 0%


I made a slight alteration here. I didn’t try to hook up to Google Sheets, but instead pasted in some data and started to try and get this moving.

  • Link Google Sheets to Power BI – 0%
  • Create Report – 0%
  • Create Dashboard – 0%
  • Get people using it – 0%


  • Support the Colorado groups by speaking twice and helping get one event set up
    – 33%

    • CO Springs event set up
  • Speak at 3 other user groups outside of Colorado – 33%
    • Spoke at DBA Fundamentals group
  • Support SQL Saturdays – Help get 10 events run in 2022
    • 3 scheduled, 2 more close
  • Volunteer 4 days with Habitat – 0 days
