After watching Ali Abdaal’s videos and reading Naval Ravikant’s tweets, I have finally decided to start a blog. I will treat this blog as my weekly journal where I am going to plan out things to learn the following week, reflect on the previous one, and share (hopefully) interesting things that I have found out while I was practicing the art of procrastination. Also, there will be articles posted during the week.
This blog will focus on entrepreneurship and finance. Frankly, the only thing I know about these subjects is how to spell them and that they are hard. As you know, everything in this world is interconnected, so I will dive in other stuff too.
I believe that it is often easier to learn something new from other novices rather than from experts (e. g. Richard Feynman, Jordan Peterson, Tai Lopez etc.) . Thus, I hope that my beginner’s explanation (and poor writing skills) will help you grasp the material better. Further, I am the laziest person I know, so hopefully this blog will give me motivation to constantly explore. Next, I hope that in the future people can use this blog as a roadmap for beginners to navigate (or maybe a path not to follow).
