I am interested in CCIE track but I want to know whether anyone of you who has gotten CCIE has still a balanced life.
My definition of balanced life is:
1. You are married reasonably happy.
2. You have one or more hobbies while still working on or maintaining your CCIE.
3. You're enjoying your family reasonably well (not perfectly).
4. You've other goals in life to accomplish next to CCIE job like financial, travel etc..
Has any CCIE been able to have balanced life or does one need to have only one purpose in life in order to get and maintain CCIE?
I am trying to understand whether CCIE takes all of life commitment or not.
thank you kindly,
