These past few weeks or so I’ve been taking a long hard look at myself and what I have accomplished and achieved so far. I’ve come to the conclusion, that even though I would consider myself reasonably happy in where I am at (professionally), I could be doing so much more.
I enjoy the career path I chose to follow, and I would say that I am pretty good at it, simply because of the very fact that I enjoy it and see it as more than just a job that pays with bills, however with that said I do not believe I have done as much as I could and should be doing to help myself. Whereas up until this point I thought I was doing a good job in that area, I came to the conclusion that I can be doing so much more, and this is only going to exponentially increase my knowledge and growth rate, if I follow a few simple steps!
Step one is to read, read a lot of books. So I am going to make the effort to read a hell of a lot more books, the last week alone I have read 3 books, well 2 and a half, still reading the 3rd.
Spamnation by Brian Krebs – This was a good read and very interesting, about spam emails that we all receive and hate, what I really enjoyed about it, is the fact that I can relate and recall seeing all those damn emails in my inbox, as I still have my old ntlworld email address, which is around 15 years old and receives a crazy amount of spam still!
The Dark Net byJamie Bartlett – I started off the first several chapters and was enjoying this book, however the last half of the book was not about the dark net at all, it covered area’s with how people make money from cam websites and the like, not really interesting and a bit misleading, however over all a decent read.
We are Anonymous by Parmy Olson – I am several chapters into this book and I’m really enjoying it so far, a good bit of insight into the Anonymous group, how they started and what they stand up for.
I’m now at the point where I am making a far greater effort to educate myself and have fun doing it, I have grand plans for myself in the immediate future, it currently feels that I do not have enough time to implement these changes in my life, I just know I will get there, and turn this site into something which will hopefully be beneficial to others!
