So my goals for 2018 are smaller that 2017 but none the less intense.
I currently working on the VCP6-NV study, after failing the exam last month by about 20 points. So I’m working very hard at studying to pass the exam in a litter over 5 weeks.
After that I’ll be studying for the CompTIA CSA+ and MCSE: SI 2016, if I have time the AWS:SA. That’s my goal for 2018. it’s a smaller list than last year but no less focused. Once I get those 3 exams after NSX I’ll decide the path I’ll take next.
I think VCIX-NV is my next goal with VCIX-DCA shortly afterwards.
Sometime down the road CompTIA CASP and CISSP are on my roadmap but I need a few more years, for me, before I decide ot go down that path.
I’d like to make a fresh attempt at my CCNA: R&S and DC at some point and perhaps a CCNP just to have the knowledge when designing VMware infrastructures.
On a personal note, my goal fiscally is to get 30k into savings and to invest 15k. For my health, I bought a Bowflex Total Gym and my goals with that is to get into fit and trimmed shape.
I’d like to keep journaling daily, working on reading a leisure book a week, keep saving money, building my credit score upwards to 775, blogging on here more often, getting a few modifications for my new Subaru WRX, spending more time with my parents and dog, spending more time with my friends and doing a little bit of traveling. I’ve recently got into cooking, painting, and playing my grandfather guitar, so my list of hobbies just seems to keep on growing….
somewhere along the lines I hope to meet an amazing woman again after now being single for almost 2 years in April. But my goals aren’t on that part of my life as my life is very busy and focused and that’s most important to me. My goal by 2020 is to strongly consider buying a house.
But this is my outlook for 2018.
