Wiki Ninja Tactics

This is my first official Wiki Ninja Blog and wanted to share with you my experience. 

Few months I have seen a video about changing and it is a book too, it is called " Who Moved my cheese" 

You can watch this video about it here

 The main point about it "When you change what you believe you change what you do"

 How this is related to Wiki Ninja and TechNet Wiki?

 I was little bit hesitating to start writing and sharing at the beginning and postponing but once I started writing I felt better and learnt a lot, not all my articles were awarded but the point is to share your knowledge and create new virtual friends and followers.

 I remember when one of my articles won gold prize on the monthly TechNet guru award, I got several thanks that my article helped them to resolve the same problem I was facing.

 You can think what you are doing is small or no one will look into it but the fact about TechNet and Wiki Ninja you will find a lot helping you and collaborating. Definitely your ideas will help others who were trying to do the same thing so they will save effort and time instead of reinventing the wheel.

 I see that Wiki Ninja and TechNet Wiki are awesome communities to share information and help each other.

 I advise you to start taking the step and share and collaborate through this great channel.

  7. Sweet. I added the embedded video.

    I’ve read the book but hadn’t watched the animation. They did a fantastic job with it. I’m a big fan of the book.

    I’ve had a few moments in my life where I had to get out of my comfort zone and look for new cheese. As scary as this scenario is, it’s key to note that Sniff and Scurry didn’t leave until they completely ran out of cheese. That’s when it’s pretty obvious you
    need to move on (your product dies, gets transformed, your group gets re-orged, you get fired, you get laid off, etc.). It’s scary but you know you have no choice.

    The really cool and a different kind of scary is when you walk away from your cheese when the cheese is getting low. You know the cheese has moved, and essentially, you’ve been scouting and checking it out, ready to move on. I’ve done that in my own career
    path as I moved from Microsoft Surface to SQL Server BI, to Power BI, to Azure Development and Visual Studio.

    It’s never easy, but if you do your homework and actively look for where the new cheese is getting added, it becomes fun and rewarding. The result is that I (and several of my team members who I’ve been learning from), always have a What’s Next. We have 5-10
    What’s Next’s. In fact, we start to get so many, that we carve them off and pass them on, essentially handing out free cheese maps. =^)

    Success is only temporary. To truly succeed, you must constantly reinvent yourself. And in order to do that, you need a reinvention road map where you have 5 Cheese Stations in mind for your future. You have to constantly test out the cheese to see if that’s
    where you should move next. And if you can scale yourself across those Cheese Stations, then you built a Cheese Collecting Machine. That’s the ultimate goal.

    One more example. I love what the BizTalk MVPs have gone through. Folks like Steef-Jan, Tord, and Sandro. Here is Steef-Jan’s latest blog on this topic:

    So they were the BizTalk MVPs. But pretty soon, they started branching out to utilizing SSIS, BizTalk Services on Azure, and other Azure services. So they became the Microsoft Integration MVPs. So their cheese was already getting moved. And then in the last
    year or so, it really moved a ton, turning toward micro-services, Azure App Service, Logic Apps, and so on. And it continues to transform. So they’ve really had to switch gears rapidly to keep up with the moving cheese’s! And they’ve handled it like pros!
    So hats off to the Integration MVPs!

  8. Also, it’s important to note that this is John’s first blog post!
