Right now, this very moment, there’s an ugly piece of work tapping on your shoulder – and I don’t mean your boss.
You agreed to do it months ago during the 2012 planning sessions, but you never really expected January 2012 to arrive. Now that it’s here, you’re starting to get nervous because you’ve never done it before and you’re not quite sure where to begin.
I’d like to help.
I believe I can’t be successful unless other people around me are successful, and that means you. I also believe that if there’s anything out there I haven’t done before, I bet either somebody I know has done it, or a few other readers have. Between all of us, we can figure it out. In the year 2012, there’s no need for you to feel alone going up against anything. Whether it’s implementing replication, fixing a performance problem, getting your blog back on track, losing weight, or beating cancer, we’re here for each other.
Leave an anonymous comment describing the work that scares you. We (and by we I mean the internet) will talk about our first time doing it, what we wish we’d have known when we did it, and our favorite getting-started resources.
