it comes after ccna…

and before ccie…

it’s a progression… there is long term value in the way cisco presents information in it’s “literature”… i’ve actually noticed this… the realization has often been shocking…

so a guy on cln asks the question should he go right from ccna to ccie… i say, if you’ve got the balls, do it… i believe in cisco’s delivery methods because they’ve worked for me… i sometimes get pissed off at the methodology but utlimately i see the wisdom in the end… the “o, so that’s why they were force feeding that to me”, moments… often while it’s happening, the taste isn’t pleasant…

i was reviewing some things today and i actually heard wendell’s voice… not sure if that’s actually the way wendell sounds, but the voice in his words that i’ve read countless times was crystal clear…

northlandboy made a good point in his response… most people who try to go that way sometimes don’t even make it to the written, let alone the lab…

two days ago i couldn’t imagine life with CCNP… today i can’t imagine life without it… is anything really that different right now… no…

at this point the ccie seems reachable, though far away… i hope in a year it appears closer…

single minded purpose my friend…
