Recently I turned 22! 🥳
And here are my 22 learnings and achievements from this year that made me grow A LOT.
1. First dollar from the internet
Made my first dollar from the Internet. I encourage everybody to do it, it’s a mindset change!
2. Become a maker
Nowadays you can work for yourself, so why working for companies? The future is made of all types of makers.
3. Life goals
Set long term goals. Where want you to be in 5 years? Act today to achieve it.
4. How much are you worth it?
You are more worth than your payslip. Go search better opportunities.
5. Laziness is your enemy
Don’t procrastinate. As Picasso said: “When inspiration comes, better finds you working.”
6. Self-confidence is powerful
Measures your daily progress, that boosts your self-confidence. Take notes of what you have done every day.
7. Partners for life
The best financial decisions are made with your partner. Some important expenses are not that important.
8. Search and learn
If you want to do something and don’t know how, just learn how to do it. Start by doing little projects with easy goals.
9. Two types of people on social media
Use social media smart, don’t be just a simple consumer and start becoming a creator.
10. Earn money, buy income
Save money and money will save you. Money gives us the security to achieve our goals. So earn money, buy income.
11. Network is a chance for opportunities
As Kanye West says: “Contacts are a better currency than money”. Network gives you many opportunities, don’t be shy and start talking.
12. Habits are all
Improve yourself every 6 months. If you think you’re still the same from 6 months ago, you need to change some habits.
Surround yourself with people better than you. You can learn from what you listen to and from your mistakes.
14. There is more than one path
If you choose the same path all people choose, you will end up at the same spot.
15. Everyone is different
Compare you with your past self, stop comparing with others. Learn everyday something new, no matter how small or big.
Put deadlines to your own tasks. For my time management I use timeboxing. Helps me stay focused and get my work done.
17. A student for life
You never have to stop studying. If you stop, search for something new to learn.
18. Coding is a superpower
Better know how to code, is like a super power! You will understand much better how thighs work and which constrains you may have.
Everybody can write a blog, a book or a course. Just start doing it today about something you are really passionate about.
20. Graduation cap
I graduated from college.
21. Every year a new list
Create a list like this every year about your learnings. This will help you look back and keep a track of your progress.
22. Be worth it
Work hard and share it. Everyone loves others doing amazing stuff and people will try to contact you if you are competent enough.
