This is a good blog post. I’ve come back to it multiple times to get perspective on my career and involvement in the Oracle community:
Tim Hall blog post on why you shouldn’t try to become an Oracle ACE
I like it because it encourages me to embrace my own skills, personality, and desires as they are and not try to be someone I’m not. It’s OK for me to be the DBA I am and not what someone else is or appears to be.
p.s. To those of you who celebrate the American holiday of Thanksgiving I wish you a happy holiday!
