A Good Deed

Have you ever noticed that the unique circumstances of our lives sometimes make it easy for us to make a big difference in someone else’s lives? Each one of us has unique skills that can benefit others; sometimes we can spend ten minutes to save someone else ten hours, or even more.

It’s easy to look at Bill Gates or other insanely rich people and think “how easy it must be for him to make a difference.” But how often do we look at ourselves and think the same thing?

When was the last time that you did a good deed, and gave a little bit of yourself to make a big difference to someone else?


About ssimagine

My name is Matthew Roche, and I am a Senior Program Manager with the SQL Server product group at Microsoft. I work on Master Data Services and Data Quality Services, and have previously worked on SQL Server Integration Services. Although I work for Microsoft and will be posting on technical topics, I want to stress that this is a personal blog, and any opinions posted here are mine and mine alone. I built my career around SQL Server and Microsoft technologies for well over a decade before I joined Microsoft as an employee, and I plan on using this blog to share my personal experience and opinions. They may well be shaped by my experience on the SQL Server team, but they’re still mine, and not that of Microsoft, disclaimer, disclaimer, etc., etc..
