Overcoming Challenges Cybersecurity Transformation

Overcoming Challenges: 3 Steps To My Cybersecurity Analyst CySA+ Transformation So, what has been your toughest challenge in your career or personal life so far, & how were you able to overcome it?   For some of us this might include overseeing massively complex projects, handling difficult people, or competing in seemingly impossible fitness races/challenges.   We could try to avoid challenges like these, but that would limit our opportunities for growth. And actively seeking challenges can help us break through our comfort zone as long as we have the right strategy & focus.   I'm no stranger to setting big goals to achieve. I've competed in fitness challenges, raced in marathons, triathlons, & even obstacle races like ninja warrior.   Having done this enough, I noticed patterns for what worked.

My Top Books of 2021

I surpassed my goal of reading 50 books for the Goodreads 2021 Reading Challenge! Also see  money goals  and more.     For many years I gave myself the excuse that I didn't have the time to sit down and read, and barely read 1 book a year. So how did I do it?     Well listening to audiobooks while driving or training for sports to  stay in shape   definitely helps. Luckily books in Amazon Kindle format can also be read by Echo devices and even using the Alexa app.     My top books by category read in 2021 were:     Business/Technology   Getting Things Done  https://amzn.to/3qyGv5f     The Hard Thing About Hard Things  https://amzn.to/351L9Ax       Mindset/Motivational   Ultralearning   https://amzn.to/33GJfUW     Tools of Titans  https://amzn.to/3tCNdcf       Health/Wellness/Psychology   Lifespan  https://amzn.to/3GAnJjj     Stillness is the Key  https://amzn.to/3qwBNF8       Fun/Historical   Leonardo Da Vinci  https://amzn.to/3tyGZtO     Homo Deus  https://amzn.to/3qyGHS3       Fi
