Bold Goals for Database Sherpa

As I mentioned before, I've been working with a great marketing firms, DVQ Studio. The company is run by two amazing women, Emily and Gretchen. Brilliant and nice.. combinations I admire. Anyway, the process started with a lot of questions and note taking. It forced me to think about the future of Database Sherpa. This was interesting, because I've been really taking it one day at a time. I don't like to think too far ahead because I tend to get distracted by the big pictures and move to that before I'm ready.

But, I know that thinking about the future is important. It keeps the momentum moving forward. But, I need to focus on the here and now. So, while those big dreams about the future of Database Sherpa are buried in Emily and Gretchen's notes, I wanted to share some of my current bold dreams:

  • Bringing joy and compassion to database development.
  • Blending yogic and Buddhist principles into consulting.
  • Bringing in another Sherpa.
To make these dreams happen, I need to get busy. Soon, you will be seeing my newly transformed web site and materials that outline how joy and compassion can be brought into database development.
Secondly, I'll be documenting the practice of being a Database Sherpa. My advisor, Veronica, will be helping me along the way.
Finally, by the end of the year, one Sherpa project will be lead by Veronica to refine the process and documentation.
This is a very exciting time! There is much change in the horizon, but change that will come with compassion and love.
I can't wait to share this with you all as things are completed. So, until that time, I wish you peace, joy and love.
