Dream Life, Life

Another song from my personal playlist, Colbie Caillat‘s “Dream Life, Life”. While this might seem a bit on the dreamy side, it really drives home the belief that we should be working for the life we want not the life we have.

Now, this doesn’t mean that we should be spending recklessly or doing something illegal to get what we want. The way that I hear and understand the song, is that a goal is set and then we do everything in our personal power to change our circumstances and reshape our life! As Gary Vaynerchuck says, “Crush It!” (yes, I am listening to it for the 4th time!)

Basically, live your passion and follow your dreams!

A new Direction

This last month I have been wondering what I should be doing with my career and what direction I should take.  I have been struggling with going into management or pursuing a security cert direction [CISSP].  Part of my problem is that my company is not really into paying for Boot Camps or the week long training courses with the certification test at the end.

As I have been going through this process I started listening to Crush It! by Gary Vaynerchuk.  In this book he focuses on pursuing what you love and doing that one thing.  I took the initiative and started to write down the things that I love to do.  One of those things is my religion which I dedicated to … the other is my job and hobby.  Computers!  So, I started to write about the things that I like about computers and what drives me and what things I really like about computers.

While these things were rolling around in my head; I remembered that my boss told me he didn’t want to lose me since I am his resident Apple expert … then it hit me, Apple Certifications.  The group I am working for right now will create a need for more Apple hardware and those who know how to use and monitor and SysAdmin those machines.

Thanks Gary for getting me to think about what I am doing and where I need to move my career.
