This week we are being trained on Power BI- and I am looking forward to this on a lot of levels.
First and formost, I get to be a #datanerd for an entire week. Build models, mold data, make analytics, visualiztions, make data sing and dance. Cant stress enough what a great escape from day to day that will be.
But even better, I actually get to learn. I realized a few years ago that I spend a lot of my time teaching, educating, mentoring, role-modeling, and lot of other buzzwords that are synonoms for giving back and passing on expereince. But I spend very little time focussed on my learning. And I miss it. Its hard to be a servant leader and selfish at the same time!
When you are young in your career, you think you know a lot more than you do, so you almost resist learning opportunities, and resent them when forced upon you. But now I actually clamor for such opportunities, to learn and broaded for the sake of learning. Locked in a room, surrounded by smart people, absorbing information. Awesome.
I’ll give a review next week on Power BI and the coolness thereof, and I have VERY high expectations, but for now, I am eager to be a student for a bit. Open mind, juiced up laptop, fast WiFi, and a wookie-mug of coffee. Giddieup.
But I am still,
