Working on It
I’m half way through my degree, and despite my good grades I feel as if I’ve learned next to nothing. I’m 20 (nearly 21) years old, and I’m not sure I know how to jumpstart a car or how to make sure I stay on the good side of the IRS.
Something has got to change. Inspired by the No Excuse List, which I was reminded of by J.D. Bentley’s Institutionalized, and Joel Gascoigne’s encouragement to “Work harder on yourself than you do on your startup”, I’ve decided it’s time for a “startup of the self”. I’ve also decided to track my progress openly, as much as I am comfortable with, perhaps a bit more.
I could go on, but it’s time to start.
