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. All my coping tips are under this tag.
Today’s tip is to recall three things you’ve done that you are proud of.
I hope there are a lot of things I’m proud of that I have had accomplished in my life. Here’s a quick list of the first few that come to mind.
1. SQL Server Central – What started as a way to help others and build a business (and hopefully make some $$$) turned into a passion and an enjoyable experience for me on daily basis. The editorials started out as a way to spice things up and turned into a part of my life I enjoy immensely. However, the things I am most proud of here is helping people. I’ve gotten lots of notes about how people have learned and grown from the site, which makes me proud.
2. Fundraising – I’ve raised funds a few times for friends who were going through a tough time. I am proud that I was able to help someone in need.
3. A few projects, but I see these often as I move around the ranch or leave/come home. I know my wife appreciate these, and we certainly could have paid someone to do this, but I enjoyed the projects and had some time with my kids who helped build the shelters.
The horses use them in the winter. Apparently in the summer they’re too lazy to go inside.
