Sometimes It's the Journey, Not the Destination

Recently, I read Dr. AnnMaria De Mars' blog post "Translating Ruby to SAS (or vice versa)." I found that I really liked it, and not just because she mentions me (although that was pretty cool). But rather, I like the end of the post, where she identifies a key value of certification: The preparation process exposes you to new programming methods that you may not have considered before. Sometimes the journey is as important as the destination.

    I've been considering pursuing certification - just reading this made me put that on my "to do" list for things I want to accomplish in the next year. Thanks for the perspective.
