If you read my resolutions blog post, you know that one of my dreams is to learn more, and specifically to attend a SQL Server class. Paul Randal and Kimberly Tripp, along with fantastic people like Jonathan, Glenn, Erin and Joe, runs amazing organization SQLskills. It is one of the most premium training companies. I have dreamed about attending for many years, but could not for many reasons. The reasons why I couldn’t are not the point, today the point is why I want to attend.
For a dream to come true, you might have to pay a certain price, but it’s worth it. The dream is not to save money or waste time; the dream is to achieve your goals. When your dream comes true you aren’t going to look back and miss all those vacation days you used, the reward is the satisfaction of reaching a goal. The reward can even be better than you had ever dreamed of.
My dream was to attend SQLskills training. I posted this in my recent
My decision now is that if I am going to travel all the way to the US to attend a course, I am going to get the maximum experience I can. So I am going to do two courses: Immersion Experience 1 and Immersion Experience 2. Two courses, back to back. It is a lot, and I can’t wait. I just have to do it – I made the resolution on January 1st, and I want it to come true. I have the hotel booked, the tickets are purchased, and my registration is completed. I am doing my homework. I am even pre-learning through Pluralsight so that I know I get the most out of my two courses. I am planning so that I get the maximum out of my dream. I am going to enjoy myself – but I am not doing this for fun. This is not a vacation, it is an investment. You can’t mess with your dream and only go halfway. My dream is the get the maximum out of this course, and through that experience I know I will be happy, learn more, and grow my career. SQLskills, here I come!
Is attending a SQLskills Immersion Experiences a dream of yours, too? Join me!

Congratulations! I attended several of Paul and Kimberly’s sessions @ SQLConnections in Las Vegas last November and enjoyed them thoroughly. To attend their immersion classes is a dream of mine too. Thanks for the inspiration!
You will love it. SQL Skills is an amazing adventure into expanding your knowledge of SQL Server. I hope to attend IE4 this year.

You will love it. I attended IE1 and 2 last year in Atlanta and Tampa. I’ve been using SQL Server since it was Sybase and attended several classes over the years but Paul’s and Kimberley’s SQLSkills training is the best! You will be exhausted at the end of each day but will have learned more than you ever thought possible. Have fun!
