Ok DBA colleagues, here’s a great quote from the book “When we learn to flex, we reinvent the rules for a new future, and it’s one in which we can all thrive”. The DBA role is always changing, and COVID-19 has sped up changes all around you. No better time than now to reinvent yourself. Be flexible and use some new ideas Auerbach discusses to handle the changes!
I give the book “Flex: Reinventing Work for a Smarter, Happier Life” by Annie Auerbach, a thumbs up. Right?
