“I wish I started this sooner.”
That’s what I said the other day at my pro wrestling class. I then repeated this phrase again on the mats during a BJJ class. Then I thought of it again during a Spanish lesson.
Long story short: I wish I did a lot of things sooner.
I saw the Wolf of Wall Street and I was amused by this movie. We all watch a movie and dream of hitting it big over night. That’s perfectly normal. The truth is that you can’t go from zero to hero in one shot. I had to write about this because I’m the biggest culprit there is.
I never feel like I’m doing good enough. I always want to be doing more. I want to do everything.
This is why a few months ago I began our current series/theme for Studenomics. I had to discus the theories, systems, and steps behind following dreams and taking risks in life without being a cheerleader.
Today we officially wrap up the Dream Catchers Series.
I wanted to highlight the articles that you may have missed along the process. If you’re frustrated, confused, looking for answers, or just interested in trying something new, there’s something in this series for you. Enjoy!

Why you need to show the middle finger to dream-crushers — Dream crushers are all around us. They serve an important purpose. The only bad news is that we have to show them the middle figure once in a while. Boom!
Why it’s insane to not even try chasing a passion — I firmly believe that it’s complete insanity to not even chase a goal of yours. What the hell do you have to lose? What do you want to try?

For me, one of my cure for boredom is to pause for a while from work and tried refreshing my mind by walking outside or playing for a minute or an hour with my daughter. Or I tried to change my daily routine like going to jog early in the morning instead of working.
That’s funny because I just told myself that I’m going to check email and then go for a walk!
When I want to fight boredom, I take a moment to pick up a book I really enjoy. I either set a timer, or give myself a number of pages I can read. Usually engaging in a book on a short basis like this gives me something interesting to look forward to on my next break.
Well said. I find that reading a book also fills me up with all sorts of new ideas!
As someone who did start a ton of things “sooner” like opening and fully funding my Roth IRA since I was 23, buying my first home at 23 and paying it off at 29, going self-employed at 28, etc…you can’t do it all. I’m now 31 and started yet another business of pet sitting. We grow and change and want to try new things forever. You can’t fit in your whole life in your 20’s, so putting that pressure on yourself is pointless. Have fun, save for your future, and get ready for decades of awesome!
Thanks for the inspiration Crystal. I sometimes feel like I should be doing more. I want to do it all!
Dang, that is a solid series on dream chasing you’ve developed there! I’m excited to read them now, since chasing your dreams are my favorite kind of articles!
I totally agree with the frustration of wishing you started sooner. I like that meme that pops up sometimes that says “a year from now you’ll wish you started today.”
It is crazy because I started pro wrestling/my current training regimen a year ago (almost), at 25. I thought it was too late. It’s never too late to start. The only time it’s too late is when you’re dead!
