I’ve been thinking about this tweet for the past 24 hours.
It reminded me of myself, before I realized what I wanted to do with my life.*
I was always a hard worker. I would generate my own luck through action.
But before I had direction, it was hard for me to know why I was working hard.
I would have lucky opportunities come my way, from my actions, but I was never 100% sure what to do with them.
It was often:
- “This opportunity looks cool!”
- “But this one looks cool too.”
- “Ooo, what about this one?”
It wasn’t until I picked a direction that I could differentiate between opportunities that were “right for me” and ones that were okay but decline-able.
It’s advice I’d give to any young person.
Pick a direction and you’ll quickly discover where your energy should be devoted to and where it doesn’t.
You’ll find out which winds are favorable or not.
