Why life lessons?
Updated: Jul 3, 2020
What is my intention of sharing my life lessons with you? The answer is twofold:
Provide you with a third person view on various topics
Encourage you to be intentional about lessons learned from your experiences
As Ray Dalio, one of the world's very successful hedge fund managers always says, formulate principles in life and business and it will help you make well informed, rational decisions in your life.
How do you do that? Through trial and error (diagram above). I found that I learn the most when I make mistakes or when I come across unexpected obstacles. I don't let mistakes bring me down but rather, I see it as an opportunity to learn and understand what went wrong, why it went wrong, and what I can do better next time I am in a similar situation.
Yes, I am 23 years old. I still have a lot of years ahead of me and I have a LOT to learn. But even then, I have learned a decent amount of things over the past years that have helped me develop as a person and and as a professional.
This is why I would love for you to take whatever you find valuable in the coming blogs and implement them in your life to see if it is of any use to you. I also encourage you to be even more intentional about the lessons you learn through your personal experiences. It will help shape your values, traits and behaviors over time and I am confident it will pay huge dividends over the long run.
