My Music Making / about my investments

I’ll wager that there is something about big transient cities that distorts everyone’s sense of time. You become convinced that you have time for everything you find challenging, that your ultimate horizon is infinite. This is only the beginning for you.

But you don’t know how much time you have. And even if things go well for you, your time is finite. You can’t figure out your professional life now and your personal life later. (Unless you’re the rare thirteen-year-old entrepreneur, in which case, I might demur.)

Elizabeth Spiers “Why Developing Serious Relationships in Your 20s Matters“  (via msg)

I got to the big city after basically blowing off my 20’s, working on neither my relationships nor my career (I DID learn the art of cohabitation, though, through four failed attempts - that came in handy later). By the time I got here in my mid-30’s, I was profoundly aware of just how little time there was to progress on both, and it has driven me since. 

This is a great article.
