Hi Eddy
When I'm your age, one strategy that I employed that I later abandoned is...I surrounded myself with what interested me. I dwelt on the subject mentally. I looked for ways to make some progress.
If I had not become discouraged or as distracted by other matters, I would have made more progress.
A keen interest can take us places, especially if we care enough to do the work of learning the entire process...from conception to renumeration.
By the time you're 25, you will not be old. Likewise 45! Even 75 might not be so old. If you focus on what you care about. Remember, all things are related to physics, including ART and HOSPITALITY...even ETHICS and QUESTIONS about ETERNIY. So you will find love through devotion
and rewrite the apparent future of whatever is in your orbit...preferably with a good, sensible
patience with other people and appreciation for them. But you will have to carve out time for study and personal progress daily, or the world will just carry you away on its own agendas and you'll look back and wonder where it all went.
Oh, well, it's still a journey. Maybe not the one I had in mind. And the world missed something by so determinedly distracting me so much.
Rarm Wegards,
Mike
