CCIE R&S, so it starts ....

Ever since I started working as a Network Engineer, I have always wanted to be a CCIE and dreamed of getting that prestigious number. But life happened and 8 years, marriage and a 1 kid later, i just realized how important it is for me to go back and get what I have always wanted, and that now is the time.

More than what the certification would bring, this is more of a mental block for me, that I can get out what I set out to achieve. Biggest challenge has been setting time aside and keeping myself motivated. And what better place to start than surrounding yourself ( virtually ) with like minded people. So, here I am. I wish you join and collaborate with you in achieving this and hopefully helping others aspiring for the same dream.

So it starts... :)

    Best of luck! The mental block part for me was huge. Suddenly making the switch in my mind from "CCIE is for those senior guys, not me" to "oh wait, I AM one of those senior guys" made a huge difference. Not just for this test, but for my work and attitude in general. I get comments on it regularly.
