Today’s coping tip is to find out something new about someone you care about.
I took the time to do this at the recent PASS Summit. During events like this, I try to make time for new friends and also chat with longtime ones. I had the chance during one break to sit down with someone I’ve known for a long time. I don’t see them often, but I look forward to our meetings.
For the first time I got to learn a bit more about their family and life outside of work, as we’ve often just chatted about work. It was a nice break from a busy week and a fun time to spend time with someone I care about.
I started to add a daily coping tip to the SQL Server Central 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.
