SQLAuthority News – Resolution for New Year 2011

Today is the first day of the year so I want to write something very light.

Last Year: 2010

Last Year was a blast; really traveled a lot. My family and I went on vacation. There I enjoyed being father, rolling on the floor and playing with my daughter.

Here is the list of the countries I visited throughout 2010:

  • Singapore (twice)
  • Malaysia (twice)
  • Sri Lanka (thrice)
  • Nepal (once)
  • United States of America (twice)
  • United Arab Emirates (UAE) (once)

My daughter who just completed 1 year on September 1, 2010 has so far visited three countries: Singapore, Malaysia and Sri Lanka, where I have done lots of community activities.

The list containing all my activities can be found at Pinal Dave’s Community Events.

I have written nearly 380 blog posts last year. It would be difficult for me to pick a few. However, I keep a running list of all of my articles over here: All Articles on SQLAuthority.com.

I have so far received more than 10,000 email questions during the year and consequently I have done my best to answer most of them. I strongly believe if one would Search SQLAuthority.com blog, they would have found the answer quickly.

The best part of 2010 for me was working on SQL Server Health Check and SQL Server Performance Tuning.

This Year: 2011

This year, I came up with two simple goals:

1. Personal Goal: Reduce Weight

2. Professional Goal: Stay busy for the entire year with SQL Server Performance Tuning Projects. (Currently January 2011 is booked with performance tuning projects and 40 other days are already booked throughout the year).


The future is something one cannot exactly guess and one cannot see. I just want to wish all of you the very best for this coming New Year.

  1. Hello!
    A very Happy New Year 2011 to all!

    Pinal: I really look forward to the method and results of your personal goal of reducing weight. I have decided to use the stairs and increase my water intake a bit in order to take care of a growing paunch. The water has helped me in the past. Do let me know what works for you.

    Have a great 2011!

    Thanks & Regards,
    Nakul Vachhrajani

    Be courteous. Drive responsibly.

  3. Hi Pinal,
    regarding reducing weight, build in time for some excercise (around 30 mins, mornings works best for me) as part of your daily routine, have water, fresh fruits and vegetables. This is just a friendly suggestion.

    2. every morning drink 1 ltr hot water(no need to take very hotly) in empty stomach and keep walking for min 2 kms.i did that. i got shape also
