I can't really tick off any of my resolutions from last year:
But I did change jobs, after 10,5 years in the same place. I'm now working full time as database developer/database architect instead of sharing my time between project management, VB.Net and databases.
(This might be slightly off topic...)
As I probably won't be in tomorrow, I'd like to wish everyone a safe ending of 2010, and a happy, brand new year 2011.
I found this lovely site in June 2010 and have since then been visiting more or less every day. I learn new things almost every day, both from reading other's answers but also from being challenged by the questions to explore SQL Server.
Thanks everyone who asks and answers questions!
My New Year's resolution is to speak FOR XML more fluent when 2011 has ended. What's yours?
Adding to the above, I'll add some more specific things I'd like to accomplish during 2011.
Mine is to get MCITP Certification in Denali, then need to learn Storage Management and Administration, need to get more involved in ASKSSC.

Mine are (in no particular order):
Basically, lots of stuff that requires me to spend time honing my craft, which is probably a good thing.

I actually can't say what mine is yet. It'll become apparent within the next week or so.

I intend to lose some of this weight I've gained over the last year.
But on a more tech oriented side, I hope to write more than I have been. I do much of my best research and learning when it is tied up in writing, and I find that forcing myself to explain something, even if only to my text editor, helps to ensure that I actually understood it.
