You Are 22 And Want To Save The World So Do This:
James Altucher

I’m 22 and I agree.

Thanks for another awesome read, James! I’m 22, graduated from college, working a full-time job and working on a couple side projects. I’m also married. And do a ton of volunteering. And some freelancing.

But I’m also trying not to burn out. Which is why I find it necessary to have a plan, like you said. And also not to be discouraged at failure, but to see them as lessons. I’ve already started two companies that failed, but that’s because I was 18 and 20 years old and didn’t really have a plan. This next time around, I feel a lot more confident. And the time after that I hope to be even more so. Your posts keep me engaged, learning, and feeling refreshed.

Like you said (paraphrasing of course, since we 22 year olds have a lot to say and our own ways of saying it): I want to start a company; and then many more. I want to write. I want to make tons of meaningful connections. I want to become an influencer. ALL I WANT TO DO IS CHANGE THE WORLD. Is that so much to ask?

I really appreciate your writing. Anytime one of your posts shows up in my feed, whether here on Medium, LinkedIn, or elsewhere, I stop what I’m doing to read it. Your writing has an emotional pull and impact. And like I just mentioned: it leaves me feeling refreshed.

Keep up the great work!
