🎂 My birthday is tomorrow: March 18, 2019. I will be turning 26, which makes me consider a few life milestones.
I know I know. Those are low numbers and I’m still young.
But I find it important to set macro goals and accommodate changes at these milestones when things don’t turn out as expected.
By this age I was hoping to have followed the same path as Gates and Zuckerberg.
I’ve however realized that I am not following the path of those that I look up to. I am forging my own path for which I cannot determine an outcome yet.
Good thing is that there is still a level of control; I can continue to build projects, craft content, and form relationships that matter.
When opportunity comes about—be it 4 years or 40 years from now—I will be prepared to take advantage of it.
No matter what happens though, what I aim to do will never change. I will keep wanting to provide value to people using the skills that I’ve acquired. I want to learn from those above me and set a better standard for those below.
Sorry to get all deep on you in this one! I will be back next Sunday with a regular newsletter, but if you want to follow me along for my birthday then Twitter and Instagram are the best places for that. Have an awesome week 😁
