Brandon Lee —— an entrepreneur answered this question like this:
I think most people struggle with this as young adults.
This is what freed me from the paralysis of analysis:
5 years ago I was a speaker, teacher, and trainer in a very unique non-profit niche.
For the past 2 years, I’ve been flipping houses (when you buy, fix, and then resell a house for profit) and have become a known presence in my local market.
In 3-4 years, I’m planning to choose my next “life.” I’m debating between law, tech, education, or maybe revisiting non-profits.
But the point is, I also want to do a ton of things, and I actually believe I can achieve many of them, and I owe that belief to that comic.
I’m excited to study a hard science down the road, maybe get into medicine, maybe be a sports trainer.
I’m excited to publish a few books, excited to travel the world, live in a different country, be a polyglot, and master a martial art.
I’m excited to be a teacher, maybe when I’m in my 50’s or 60’s because I’d want to be that teacher that was down to earth, encourage and believe in my students, make them laugh, and maybe become friends with them.
But for now, it’s real estate — the intent is to build a solid financial base so I don’t have to worry about money when I pick a new “life” to pursue.
You have a great list, best of luck in your pursuits!
P.S. This post isn’t quite complete without. While that comic taught me a life strategy, James Altucher’s post gave me the tools to get it done more efficiently and effectively
