Work 9 to 6 for Salary and 6 to 9 for Career


How much time one must spend in office, the subject line of the Post is something I have heard from a client several years back and believe the best of all choices. She was in executive rank and was highly successful
in both office & home fronts....................................................................
She said following
Souvik, you get a salary to do 40 hours of work per week. You must come on time at 9 am and work efficiently to plan & finish it by 6 pm. Whatever you are doing during this time, you must try to do it in the best possible way.
You should plan so that you do not sign up for more work than what you can deliver. Also manage your priorities & timing to avoid work fluctuations as much as practically possible.
 I nodded head as what she said is something everybody knows. She continued.
However, 9-6 work will only help you “earn” your salary. It will not be good enough to offer a sustained growth, especially in later part of your career.
If you really want a good growth, then you need to spend some more time for your career. I stay at office till 9 pm and from 6-9 pm, I study my domain, follow technical trends, write white papers and keep me posted on world events. I also relook at the work I did recently and explore if something can be done in a better way.
I strongly feel the career advance I got was not for the work I did from 9 am to 6 pm – it ‘qualified me’ for the promotion. But the actual promotion came for the things I did from 6 pm to 9 pm.
Before I could ask about the weekends, she wrapped up her advice with following
One thing you may realize that there is not much time left to be spent with family during weekdays. Hence it is crucial that weekends, holidays & vacations are not compromised unless we are in real crisis that called for extreme measures.
And when you are with family, don’t think work. They deserve your 100% attention
I found this to be a great advice many of us can follow. We do not need to do it every day in all weeks but the concept of committing for & delivering 40 hrs of work each week and then spending additional time for improving the work & skills will surely help us succeed.

dont get panic if u get the following error while in your joinings, there is a simple way to solve this.
it is because of collation settings on two columns we are doing joinings. it is because of collation settings on two columns we are doing joinings
First step is to figure out what are two colaltion that cause for conflicts. Let us assume that collation has not been set at the column level and instead at db level, then we have to execute two simple statements as below.

Statements: Select DATABASEPROPERTYYEX('DB1',N'Collation') Select DATABASEPROPERTYYEX('DB2',N'Collation')
One more thing, make a note that if you are on sharepoint you will get error as below
Latin_General_CI_AS_KS_WS. if you are on most any other database and use the dafault settings you may get this SQL_Latin_General_CP1_CI_AS.

'#Resolve' To export a list, you must have a Microsoft SharePoint Foundation-compatible application.

Searching this error message easily finds the root of the problem. There is a problem with the Office 64 bit version. It doesn’t work with SharePoint. These solutions generally tell you to uninstall your 64 bit office and install a 32 bit version. Happily there is a much easier solution.
Despite the error message the export actually works! Notice the yellow bar at the bottom of your browser. Simply save the .iqy file normally and open it with Excel. It’s that simple. The error message is certainly a nuisance but does not actually stop the export.
Thanks for ready my blog :)
