“I’m too young to start… ”
“I am young & don’t know what I want to do…”
“I’m a student. I’ll start after graduation…”
I strongly believe there is an unmatched power & sure-shot advantage in starting young.
When we start young, we start from ZERO, with not much to lose (other than our ego.)
When we start young, we can EXPERIMENT with 100 different things and find out the few things we are good at, & passionate about.
When we start young, we can work on MULTIPLE things at the same time since our other priorities are not as big.
When we start young, we gain EXPERIENTIAL knowledge & soft skills, which we keep honing with time.
When we start young, we can readily get HELP from friends, family & experts.
When we start young, we can afford to make MISTAKES & get away with most of them.
When we start young, we accumulate more years of real experience, giving us an undue ADVANTAGE that keeps compounding.
Should we figure everything out when we are young & look for guarantees?
Should we start young & give ourselves the chance we deserve?
When did you start?
P.S. The wider the range of possibilities we offer children, the more intense will be their motivations and the richer their experiences.
