I am working on creating a website with my skills and accomplishments. I intend to add some blog posts around specific topics. 

As I started to work on that, I realize that things I have done don't flow together.

I have done a lot of things separate from my career as a SAS/SQL developer. I want a creative way to merge my business interest/experience/expertise with my day job. 

I understand that I may need to upgrade my skill set and create things. I need to show that I am willing to learn new things and solve problems. I need to show that I can lead and complete big project. I need new skills on my resume. 

But I want to be smart about what I invest my time on. 

Like Scott Adams states in his book - 'How to fail at everything and still win big' - there was absolutely zero benefit to him being able to play ping pong with his left hand. 

So I want to invest time, energy and money into something that can have compound effect towards making me more valuable in the marketplace. 

How can effectively merge the two worlds I live in?

    @keni I like to refer to it as, "Get good at something worth getting good at."

    @keni - the thing to be aware of is Scott is connecting the dots in hindsight. I.e. Imagine he learned to play ping-pong left-handed and met the person who would publish him.. Then, he'd be telling you to learn ping-pong with both hands -- because you never know.

    and you'd be wanting to get up at 5:00 am to hit the ping-pong club. ( now I'm having fun )
