AGE OF PURSUIT: WHEN SHOULD YOU EMBARK ON A CAREER

3 Women in Suit Sitting

“When should I start?”


the start

When you are first entering life, the question looms, “What should I do with my life?” And the answer to that takes time for so many looking to succeed in this world. But when is the best time to pursue your career? Because the quick and easy answer is to say right out of college. But most young people have no clue what they want to do with their lives. And for the few that do, they are usually like myself at the age of 23/24 years. And I would say I got truly serious about the age of 25 years. Now that I am about to be 31 years old, I have made considerable progress. But how do you find that path to starting your career? First you have to make sure you know your strengths and weaknesses before starting. Then find something you love and are good at before pursuing. The reason you have to love it is because you will go years without making money.

the paradigm

Along the path to success, you are going to find yourself feeling so bored and restless. You will think that what you are doing is for nothing because the success takes so much time. And most will give up at this point and take what is given to them. Because most people are not wired to continuously deal with lose after lose after lose and still be left standing. So don’t be stressed out by the fact that you are not moving much in life. You are experiencing little successes so you are progressing. For me, I like to add to my personal website milestone news updates just so when I look back I can see that historical progression. This way, there is a trail to allow me to see how much I changed what I changed about myself to grow.

serendipity 

You will have these euphoric moments where information will start to come together and things will just make sense. And from that everything you do will do and plan on doing will be crystal clear. It makes you sit back and wonder, like, “Oh, this is how our descent ancestors navigated the Earth.” We were able to figure things out, and harness parts of our minds that we didn’t know we could. And over time that growth has led to our vast productivity. No one really has an “Ah Ha” for real in life with no work. The “Ah Ha” is from time put in which leads to these types of moments.

I am from Racine, Wisconsin where I was raised until I graduated high school back in the year 2006. That entire time growing up in my mother's house, I was a student athlete. My goal was to embark on a general business career or athletics. But injuries through sports stopped a sports path, so I decided upon business with a focus in marketing. While attending undergraduate school at University of Wisconsin-Parkside, I began to write screenplays in my senior year. At first it was for fun, but I quickly learned writing allow me to transfer negative energy into characters I created. This led to a decrease in depressing mood swings, which in turn boosted my quality of life. After undergraduate school in May of 2011, I move to New York City for graduate school. While pursuing my MBA, I continued to write screenplays, but always wanted to write novels as well. I finished graduate school back in the year 2014, but wrote screenplays until I began thinking of my first short film, first First Day Fears. While finishing my fifth feature length screenplay, I started to write my first novel this year. So far, I have finished my first short film and working on my next one (Freedomless Speech), and recently self published my first novel (The Boy Who Could Talk To God) and short stories book (Faheem Jackson Short Story Collection Volume 1). My feature length screenplays have been put on temporary hold to finish my short films and books, but I am making good progress on my sixth feature length screenplay. With year 2017 ending, I am currently writing my novel Precinct 86 and Faheem Jackson Short Story Collection Vol. 2. I have started teaching myself photography and will pursuing that by summer of 2018, along with my videography, podcast later on, and more research for my documentary.
