50% of 2022
2021 was the best year of my life as on the beginning of 2022. Because of the compounding events in career, habits, fitness, wealth, skills, and connections, I assumed that recreating that would require two times the effort.
I subsequently began reading new books and re-reading previously read books, which introduced me to terms like a power law, the leap of faith, pivot, vanity metric, Bandwagon, etc. that I use to explain mental models these days.
I operate on the atomic level under the tenet of “power law." So let’s presume that I will base all of my decisions on what will occur in ten years. Hence I learned about the implications of having access to money or having power.
I accomplished the progress of 2021 in half the time. Why? Maybe since I am aware of what to do. My memory of what needs to be done is crystallized.
What’s crystalized? What’s fluid? I recently met Kunal Shah in person; he built FreeCharge, which is using fluid intelligence and is fresh to him. He may have demonstrated early traction or had pre-distribution, however in terms of popularity gained, knowledge gained, cash, and understanding of users, he developed a keen grasp of how payers operate and were familiar with the operating style of his customers; every experience he gained was fresh. But CRED is crystallized! He has access to the information he needs to know to make money in his head, which he must only import and begin using. Moral? Fail fast. You’ll act elder than your age.
Maybe 2021 was a year of fluid intelligence and 2022 was to watch those habits take their compounding effect. i.e. Through skillfully utilizing the schemes, I was able to discover how money enters the economy, manage my finances, and become financially savvy. Thanks to grinding over distributed systems and algorithms my technical abilities are at their zenith. For almost two years I’ve kept the same and best BMI. I’ve intended to create more muscle memory of generating a side income. Thanks to the web3 era’s extreme democratization, anyone can profit online.
Although I don’t journal frequently, I felt the need to organize and filter my ideas. Because “clear thinker” is a more flattering adjective than “smart.” I hope to revisit this blog someday and learn about what life had offered me in 2022.
