Question for Darby
Your threads have inspired me a lot. I am currently working on my CCNA which is a far cry from CCIE but I just want to know, and I pose this question to Darby because he seems to be a frequent poster and is on his way to obtaining his CCIE, what things did you do to gain the certs and knowledge you have as far as home studying, frequently visited web sites for information, home lab set ups, motivational techniques and so forth. I got into the IT field about 4 years ago and I have a few certs under my belt and looking to acquire more. I wonder sometimes if I have the right mind set, discipline, creativity and intelligence to achieve something like the CCIE. I find myself being too easily distracted with every day life and just needed some advice on what you have done to achieve your goals. Thanks in advance.
