Today's Meditation

When your boat hits a reef - and water is pouring in through the gaping hole in the hull...your first priority is not to plot your next waypoint - work on your wiring diagram - or to polish your stainless steel railing - but to save the ship.

Investing time today in deepening (and refreshing) my knowledge of the latest advances in network encryption and authentication - across Layer 4 (Transport) and Layer 5 (Session).

The luxury of being able to invest time in deepening and expanding your knowledge (without the pressure of a specific project deadline) ...essential to maintaining your edge.

Sharpening the axe before you need to cut wood.

One single thread of exploration...leading to so many interesting areas.

The trick is to avoid just looking for answers - and stay focused on developing deep understanding - without being distracted. 

A difficult balancing act, that.

But, serendipity is also alive and well.
