2012 has been the best year in my life so far, it was the best…ever.

I am thinking about raising the bar for myself in 2013, putting some clear goals in front of my eyes will help me score my self by 2014, this blog will be a placeholder for those goals to keep reminding myself with them.


– Lose some weight, at least 10 Kg, aiming for 15 or 20 Kg. < Started, and lost some weight but I don’t know how much

– Gain some muscle back. < Started

– pushing my wife into the decoration BA.

On Career:

MBA – But I don’t think I will go for it this year, maybe in 2014.

– Complete the CCEE < Will book the Exam Next Month

– Go for the CCIA.

– Go through ITIL certificate (as long as my company will put me into the ITIL training).

– Go for the TOGAF certificate. < Started but the Study guide is the most boring thing ever

– Complete MCSE Certificate (Private Cloud, Exchange 2013 and Lync 2013).

– Go through the CCIE Data Center Video training, I won’t go for the exam, at least this year.

– Go Through the Cisco UCS training. Will start this one today, but I am so lazy to go to the garage to bring my headset.

– Complete Office 365 lab, maybe doing Arabic videos as well.
