It’s the start of a brand new year, and what better way to kick it off than jumping into the world of writing my own blog.
The holiday break is almost over for me, and a return to work is not far off. It will be interesting to see how this writing stuff works out once I return to work, and I’m sure like previous years, 2018 will be just as busy.
I have many personal and professional goals to achieve this year, and I look forward to sharing some of these here.
A few of my big goals at work will be to drive the adoption of Windows 10 further than the previous year, getting the Windows Insider for Business program off the ground, diving deeper into Office 365 (especially around the collaboration services such as Microsoft Teams, planner etc.) and transitioning from legacy management to modern management in the End User Compute space.
Windows 10 has been a huge success at work. It has brought me immense pride and satisfaction as something that started out as a personal side project. It has blossomed into a widely accepted and requested upgrade, and feedback has been really positive.
What I did with Windows 10, I believe, is the very definition of what Dona Sarkar (Head of the Windows Insiders Program) calls #DoTheThing. I am also very fortunate also to have people leaders at work that enabled an environment where this could happen in the organic way that it did.
On a personal note, I’m in the process of repairing my old iPad Mini that I loaned to my eldest son a few years ago for school. It was in excellent condition, but was not returned that way. Once it’s back up and running, I plan to get back into reading. I have Michael Wolff’s Fire and Fury along with Satya Nadella’s Hit Refresh as the first two books.
