I’m back from my last break of the summer and thought I’d share this quote I came across for a bit of inspiration:
“A successful life is one that is lived through understanding and pursuing one’s own path, not chasing after the dreams of others.” — Chin-Ning Chu
This reminds me of another great quote which says “If you don’t have goals for yourself you’re doomed forever to achieve the goals of someone else.”
Whether you’re in need of some focus for your career or for your internal information security initiatives, here are some other pieces I’ve written on goal setting that may help…studying this subject has certainly helped me.

“A business associate referred our company to Principle Logic when we were seeking a resource to perform vulnerability /penetration testing for our external and internal networks. We found Kevin Beaver to be professional, well informed, and easy to work with. His testing did not disrupt our networks, and his progress updates were timely.
His final report was very thorough and included security recommendations for our network environment. The executive leadership was so impressed with Kevin’s security expertise, they have extended their agreement to continue to perform periodic testing. We highly recommend Kevin Beaver and Principle Logic as a resource for network security testing.”
