To counter the optimism of my last point let me share this Forbes article.
I try not to stress about my age, many successful people didn’t start doing what made them rich/famous until their 40s. At 25 (almost 26) I try to reassure myself that I have time left to accomplish my goals. According to Forbes this is a bad move and urgency is a must.
Most of the list makes me cringe. I’m not completely off track but I definitely have some catching up to do.
The part of the article that hit me the hardest was the tech talk. Computers definitely have its place on my “impossible” list. I know how to use a computer of course but I feel like everyone in my generation is able to navigate what is out there. Creating what is out there and making it work is a different level. True technical knowledge is a valuable asset in an increasingly digitized world; therefore, I decided to start the Codecademy.
