Lessons Learned in 2014


I’ve never subscribed to setting New Year’s resolutions or goals. Which I’ve written extensively about in the past. However, I do think it is important to take the New Year to look forward on how to improve life, as well as reflect on what we’ve learned in the year past. So here’s a short list of life lessons from 2014, which personally speaking, was one of my best years yet.

  • Following your passion most often will not lead to monetary success.
  • Instead, financial freedom enables us to follow our passion.
  • No one is going to pick you to do good work.
  • There is no end-result or final destination (other than death). You must enjoy the process to lead a fulfilled life.
  • Social media is an absolute fucking waste of time.
  • Promotion is not equal to creation.
  • Winning formula: make > refine > ship > repeat.
  • Loud bars are a waste of time.
  • Everyone will eventually let you down. The people who recognize when they do are the ones worth keeping close.
  • The people you spend time with are a reflection upon yourself. Choose wisely.
  • Recognition & merit rarely go hand-in-hand.
  • Everyone has their own struggle. No one’s path is easy.
  • Comparing yourself to others is a fool’s errand.
  • These are the good old days.
  • Real experiences don’t occur on a screen.
  • Working smart > working hard
  • Vulnerability is the sincerest way to build an audience
  • Make time, not money.
