From Helpdesk Grunt To SCCM Desktop Engineer

The Marathon Begins…

I don’t think I chose application packaging and to be an SCCM Desktop Engineer…it found me when I was making a transition

I grew up somewhere between Thug Street and Nerd Ave. I’m not (and have never been) a thug, but I’m not a standard nerd either.

Growing up…we did things…I did things…but, I always had a different perspective on life. Not better, but different.

Why It’s Bad To Be An Introvert And How To Maintain In An Extroverted World

Being an introvert is easy 🤨

As long as I have time and space to recharge – No problem!

At home, in my personal space – No problem!

Out and about, minding my business – No problem!

Even at a social gathering, where I can work the room a lil and get ghost when I need to recharge – No problem!

How I Lost 15 Pounds in 15 Months – Part 1

HOW I GOT HERE

I didn’t understand or make the connection that I was an introvert until I was in my 40’s. This revelation was the start of a new journey. This journey forced me to start taking note of the challenges I had to overcome by focusing on what I could control. It also forced me to stop stressing over the extroverted expectations of society.

Here are some of the changes I made as a result:

  • Changed my perspective on life
  • Changed my diet and eating habits
  • Stopped getting into situations that drain my social battery
  • Started getting out and exploring more
  • Started mentoring and coaching
