I turned 26 in 2017. I took a very long time to write this about page because I struggle with defining my identity. Did I want to be a writer? A philosopher. A self-help writer? A motivational speaker? A hacker, A maker? A Quantified self blogger? A mathematician?
For most of my life I wanted to be a scientist or an inventor. Not knowing much else about what I wanted, my aim was to be an inventor.
Life doesn’t always go according to plan. Which is technically a lie. I never had a plan. I was too busy exploring (it’s a really great series of posts asking whether you should explore for knowledge or exploit your current repertoir). Which I used to feel bad about, but then I worked out what I was doing and why it was important. I also worked out why people have a habit of giving the wrong advice (they usually mean well). Exploring did mean that I started a lot of projects I didn’t finish. But that’s changing now. I have a lot to write about this year. And hopefully it will help people.
In 2016 I lost 10kg. I started doing a lot of reading, writing and thinking.
In 2018… I have a lot to write about.
