Why Create Artificial Timelines

Why create artificial timelines on your entrepreneurial journey?

If you want a life of continual growth and fulfillment – here’s a good place to start:

Give yourself some time to get to where you want to go.

When I was in college, I created a rough timeline for myself….

My 20’s and 30’s would be devoted to experimentation and learning. I would start multiple companies, but I expected that I would experience more failure and setback than success. Making money wouldn’t be important – I’d live like a poor college kid as long as possible to give me freedom to experiment more.

I expected to start my 40’s broke, but that would be fine. The experience of my first 40 years of life would give me a foundation to start creating real, meaningful enterprises and partnerships going forward.

My 40’s and 50’s would be devoted to experimentation and learning – but on a grander scale. I expected that at least one of my companies started these two decades would live.

60’s, 70’s, and 80’s I would start reaping the rewards of my long-term approach.

It’s never too late to take a little risk, begin experimenting, and set yourself up for the life you’ve always wanted.

It’s never too late to eliminate artificial timelines in your life.
