Through the trial and errors of my personal and professional experiences I have (finally) learned a few lessons. One lesson is that any project should always start with a deeper purpose and driving force other than short-term financial gains. This means I have to be sure to stay ahead financially so that I do not put myself into situations where I sacrifice my guiding principles because I need to put food on the table and a roof over my head. Being honest with myself about this issue became easier once I became more competent in my work. Now that my skills, knowledge, and abilities are at their highest level I feel confident in stating with clarity what the next few steps of my journey might look like.
Another lesson I learned is that I should only work with people and organizations who share a similar purpose as myself. We do not have to share the exact same vision for the future, but my purpose and your purpose should at least compliment and support one another.
