Thoughts on life.
I had a small panic today thinking that maybe I did the wrong choice. Maybe I shouldn't have accepted my new job.
My mentality right now is that I much prefer learning on my own about the things I really want to learn about. Yes doing product management is fun and I'm definitely learning a lot, but is that what I truly want to be working on?
I'm thinking of all the college kids that have the choice of taking a gap-year starting fall and just working on their own projects and I'm lowkey jealous. I'd definitely want to take a gap year and just put all the time into thinking, writing and learning all day every day.
One framework I like using in these cases is if I knew 100% that I would have no judgment, what would I do? And I tend to think that the answer might be -> Yeah I'd love to do it. Give myself a year to learn and if I didn't do anything in that year, then I'll force myself to get a corporate job at any company.
At the same time, I just accepted a job at a company and would feel really bad to just leave right now. Something I need to think about for the next couple of months.
