• Get over yourself

    01 Jul 2011

    The late, great Richard Carlson once said:

    “Humility and inner peace go hand in hand. The less compelled you are to try to prove yourself to others, the easier it is to feel peaceful inside.”

    I believe this theory explains why so many people in IT and information security are so stressed out. I’m also convinced that this concept is the basis for all the bad choices and negative behavior we’ve seen in the world of IT and information security as of late.

    Moral of the story: Don’t be this guy…That is if you want to have inner peace and you want to go places in your career.
