Life Quest

As mentioned previously, I’ve become a fanboy of Brent Ozar.  His blog post about his life quest hit home with me as there are many things I have wanted to do, but have never focused on doing.  In an attempt to “Get Things Done” I’ve decided to put them out here, so that I can get where I want to be!
