I thought about what I wanted to do and what I did from the age of 8. I washed cars, cut lawns, painted houses, sold candy at school and then sold out a nightclub with a friend of mine by the age of 16.
I reckon a lot of you have thought about the above or even tried a few things in your early teens to see if your hunch was a business. I worry with technology, that we are stifling this creativity and hunger. I’m not referring to tech start-up teenagers, I’m talking about hours of social communication and online games putting any burning fire inside on ice.
I promise you that the more time you think about ideas and actually start trying a few things that give you energy and excitement, the easier the transition from student to working world will be.
Do me a favour, the next time you have an idea which gives you butterflies…actually do something with it. Give it go and worst case you have a learning experience for the next one, then the next one and the next one. You never know it just might become an obsession…which in turn becomes your career.
