The infosec Cert is a tough one to achieve and if you are going to pull this off then there are a few things that will need to happen. A few pillars that will need to be obeyed. The main pillar is the studying that will need to happen in preparation for the biggest part of the infosec certification process – passing the infosec exams. They are not the easiest exams that you will ever attempt – that is for sure. I can remember some of the exams that I took long ago, way back in my school days, and certain exams back then were totally easy. Almost laughable in terms of easiness, some of them. But these infosec exams are far from being like that. They are a big challenge for anyone and you will have to give them the respect they deserve by studying properly for them. This will unfortunately mean dropping certain non important parts of your daily schedule, and instead giving the resulting free time to getting down to do some learning. The students who refuse or lack the willpower to do this always struggle really badly, so it is best to just grit your teeth and put in the work!
