    God bless you man! Your pieces of advices is so invaluable that I can't thank you enough! In this video I loved the advice you gave at the end because that is perhaps relevant to many of us! Thank you once again Jeremiah! I hope you keep growing and be happy in your personal and professional life and keep inspiring us as perhaps not many of us have a Mentor in our lives!

    If you don't mind, I have a scenario (not video worthy, but your insights would be appreciated)

    Hypothetical : I have an career goal of security (network and/or cloud), which I find interesting enough to have started studying/cert-ing/job hunting for. Already have the CCNA (RS+security, renewed as the new one) and JNCIA-Junos for the network side, AZ-900 (and retaking the AZ-104 azure admin in a month since I missed by a few points) for the cloud side, and Palo Alto's new PCCET (entry level, i know) for the security (solutions) side. Since everything but the CCNA cost me literally nothing (thanks to MS/Juniper/Palo Alto's free cert programs) and lots of free/cheap quality material either from the vendor site, forums/study groups, or from known trainers on udemy/etc. Do you think I'm spreading myself thin, or does it make sense as they all build up to my end goal?

    The next step for that hypothetical would be the CCNP Security and/or AZ-500 Azure security, if that matters.

    Thank you, I really like sincere videos about how to face life. Also I like trying to learn from others experiences. I take my time to do things so in 3 years I got a job in a small Cisco partner. But my mindset every single day and most of the time is to help my "future self" and others by doing things right constantly. I mean, I'm 34 and "sacrificed" my time at night / weekends studying. Now I'm CCNA + CCNP Sec + ENCOR passed. 3 years for this, but now it is part of my rutine but only a few hours every day and every other weekend. So I think having a cool head and keeping centered helped me a lot while the environment is full of dispair and hopelessness, I didn't let transient situations (being an Expat away from my family) take away my dreams or stop my rutine at all. What do you think? (not a native speaker, I apologize)

    One thing that has been really helpful for me: specialize, THEN diversify!
