Going for CCIE? You better have a theme for it!

People who know me, know what a HUGE music fan I am. Music has been and always will be a huge part of my life. Not only that I listen to music, but I own an enormous library that has more than 30,000 songs across two (80GB and 160GB) iPods. I listen to everything, from Dance to Classical Music, from Blues to Metal. My hobby is to search for new music  find new musicians and bands, mainly Indie Rock an Indie Folk bands.

I’ve always made sure to have a music theme to whatever I am doing in my life. A playlist for the gym, another for road trips and so on. I even have a special song that I used to listen to minutes before exams, job interviews or any other important appointment. Since I have kept this tradition so far, I am definitely going to listen to it before the CCIE written and lab exams. And while stepping into Cisco’s Premise and will be repeating this line in my head “Success Is My Only [..] Option Failure Is Not”  😯

Trust me, it works like charm! check it out below, Yo!

So I was thinking, taking this long and exhausting journey, I must be armed with a great soundtrack that will always keep me motivated when I feel low. Keep me energized when BGP has drain all my brain juice! I really couldn’t think of any better song that can literally describe going for CCIE better than Muse’s Survival. CCIE is a race and I’m gonna win, Yes I’m gonna win,  And I’ll light the fuse, And I’ll never lose!!

 Race, life’s a race

And I am gonna win
Yes, I am gonna win

And I’ll light the fuse
And I’ll never lose
And I choose to survive
Whatever it takes

You won’t pull ahead
I’ll keep up the pace
And I’ll reveal my strength
To the whole human race

Yes I am prepared
To stay alive
And I won’t forgive,
Vengeance is mine
And I won’t give in
Because I choose to thrive

Yeah, I’m gonna win!

Race, it’s a race

And I’m gonna win
Yes, I’m gonna win

And I will light the fuse
I’ll never lose
And I choose to survive
Whatever it takes

You won’t pull ahead
‘Cause I’ll keep up the pace
And I’ll reveal my strength
To the whole human race

Yes I’m gonna win

Fight! Fight! Fight! Fight!
Win! Win! Win! Win!

Yes I’m gonna win!
