Motivation - where are you?
As all of you I'm trying to get the glorified ceritifcation with thos numbers you oh so want to put in your signature
Do you have any pointers on how to keep yourself motivated?
I've passed my CCNA a while back ago in 2008 - then started to work for tech companies and had to stop the learining for other job related stuff, different technologies and diffrent brands of networking gear.
A lot of times you want to have all cisco stuff at work but becuase of 10 years of tweaking people went with juniper, aruba, netscreens and what not - it's overwhelming and I find myself strugling to keep up with all the data and info.
I thought about recertifying my CCNA then going to CCNP and then CCIE - should I do that or just go with CCIE (I'm referring to R&S).
Saving a few $$$ appeals to me and if possible I would prefer to go straight to CCIE...
How do you keep yourself motivated? When there's work stuff you need to learn and family and friends, house and dogs on your schedule?
