Everyone takes shortcuts. It’s normal. But we shouldn’t be doing it. It comes with some disadvantages. Sometimes it doesn’t look pretty, sometimes the shortcuts cause performance problems, sometimes they cause bugs in software. Sometimes they cause applications to fails. Our job as IT professionals it’s to do what’s easy. It’s to do what’s in the best interest of the system or company.
Stop putting staples in plants. Stop taking shortcuts.

I am a Senior SQL Server DBA at CDW with 10 years of IT experience, mostly as a software developer building web and windows based applications (VB, VB.NET, C#, C++ and a smidge of Java). I have always found database design and set based logic interesting, so 3 years ago I took the plunge and became a DBA, soon after I discovered people would tell anyone who would listen all about the SQL Server internals. I was hooked. I have not looked back since. The things I say represent my opinion and in no way represent the views or opinions of my employer or coworkers.
