I made 3 personal goals about 3 years ago.
- I should have a girlfriend and have sex any time I want
- I should weigh 100 kg, push out 70kg bench press and have a good physique
- I should have 1 million dollars in my bank account.
I started to work simultaneously towards my goals. I enrolled into a good university and studied a lot to pass exams with good grades. I started going to the gym and to parties to learn about women. About one year ago, I achieved my 1st goal. I got a girlfriend. I also achieved my 2nd goal about 6 months ago and I was in a really good shape. Then I decided to get serious about my 3rd goal as that's the only one left.
Here's where the problem starts. I focused on my studies throughout university, but I realized that if I ever want to have a shot at goal 3, I have to do a lot more. I started reading professional books in my free time, joined startup communities and started projects on my own. Unfortunately, this means that goal 3 requires a lot of my time, and it's increasingly likely that goal 1 and 2 will become unfulfilled simply because lack of time. I can't go to the gym that much and I can't go to parties and spend time with my girlfriend that much. To me, it appears that the only way I can achieve goal 3 is by studying and working my ass off.
I'm beginning to think that I should have started with goal 3 first and I made a mistake. Is it possible to become a millionaire by starting a company, have a great relationship and be physically in top shape at the same time?
