Knowing what really matters.

For the last year and a half, I've been "driven" towards helping people.

I'm currently 16 years old. When I was 13 I began to think about what I wanted to do with my life. I played videogames, sports, etc. and acted fairly typical for my age. However, I felt like I was wasting my time, wasting my life, and that I'd have regrets looking back on myself, probably since I'm a very introspective person. I needed to help people reach their ambitions and make them happy. That's the only thing that really gives me satisfaction: knowing I've helped someone, even if that means only making his or her day just a little bit better. The drive to help people is practically ingrained in me. The only question is how.

I've always had an affinity for playing drums and music production. My other hobby is just creating things, and seeing the fruit of my ideas (I'd like to attend college for product/industrial design). A more detailed description of my drive would be to actualize products or ideas that help people physically and/or emotionally.

In high school I've taken on a rigorous courseload that sucks up about 11-12 hours of my day if you include homework and studying I need to complete. I've tried dozens of productivity methods because I often feel as I'm not accomplishing anything I love to do. I really needed someone to tell me it often happens in small, incremental steps, and sooner or later I'll look back and really see how far that's taken me. Thank you!

My goals for this year:

  • Finally release my first original song recorded/produced by myself
  • License one of my product ideas (in prototyping phase still)
  • Start my YouTube channel on drumming (hopefully in June, currently working on a drumming course for Skillshare)

I'll let you know how it goes!
