Does anyone remember all the way back to last Sunday’s recap. Where I vowed to buckle down and realy get some studying done? I meant that for this week. That is my story and I’m sticking with it.
The work at ‘Edo’, as Troy calls it, or ‘Mitsubishi’, as Dad calls it, was excellent. I wonder if there is a career in helping IT personnel and companies prepare presentations or prepare their staff for presentations? I could do that. Except I’d like them to come to me instead of me to them. That is why I’d make a poor entrepreneur. Waiting for your business to find you is a bad starting point.
Wednesday and Thursday were a wash. I did so little on Thursday I forgot to go in for comics. How does that work?
Friday I did the studying I wanted to. What I need are deadlines. I work better with deadlines. This week I have some specific objectives. I need to bone up on SCOM and Media Server before Wednesday. I’ve also decided that I need to pick up my ITIL Foundation cert. So I’ll detour a bit to at least find out how much studying is necessary for that. It is a single exam so it shouldn’t be too hard to pick up. Then after Wednesday back to the EA and Microsoft stuff.
Blogwise I am going to clean up my act a little. One of my conceits in starting this was to use a colloquial, conversational English. That has meant playing fast and loose with grammar. I have also just wrote free form from beginning to end. The upshot is that I’ve often reached the end of a post without a point to make. So I want to make the following improvements:
- Not to write parenthetical sentences. I over use brackets, commas, parentheses, dashes and other means to write mid sentences asides.
- To cut down on exclamation marks.
- To use fewer lists. I’ll start not using them after this one.
- To do a rough outline.
- To not start sentences with so, but, however, OK and and.
- To maintain a conversational feel. So I’ll keep contractions and some sentence fragments and the occasional smiley
It is not exactly a new beginning. Don’t expect the base contact to improve. 🙂
