UPD. I haven't updated this website for a while because I will publish a new redesigned version with a lot of content at the beginning of July :)

My plan for the nearest future

After having worked in a startup, in a branding agency and in a software development company (which I’m going to write a separate post about) I decided to take a brake in order to decide what I want to do with my life.

While I’m searching for the place where I can apply my abilities in the best way, I set the following goals.

  1. Put myself in the situations when I am the dumbest person in the room as often as possible.
  2. Find a job or activity where I can bring value, nurture my creativity and apply my intelligence. A job that fills me with joy.
  3. Be the most hard-working person I know.
  4. Update this blog on a weekly basis, exploring every topic I am concerned about.

Besides this, I have some goals I want to accomplish by the end of this year.

  1. Learn at least 3000 Chinese characters to be able to grasp the meaning out of texts written in Chinese.
  2. Learn basics of programming and crypto. These skills are definitely the key to the future and I want to explore it. This website is a way for me to learn programming. I programmed it all myself using Gatsby (React JS framework).
  3. Launch my podcast for The Reader project. I want to interview the smartest people in Ukraine (and abroad) about books.
  4. Attain the knowledge of English equivalent to a native speaker (or getting as close as I can).

I truly hope that this website will motivate me and I will keep you updated about my progress.
