Milestones

My road in life has been direct.
After graduation, he went to Hong Kong to visit a friend.
He blew through all of the sightseeing, so he decided to explore the office buildings of design firms to see what they were working on.
One design firm misunderstood him, thought he was looking for a job, and invited him to do an interview.
He saw how well that tactic worked, so he called every design firm in the city and started a faux job hunt.
When he got his first real offer, he demanded a ridiculously high salary and the firm accepted; suddenly, he was living and working in Hong Kong.
He saved all of that money so that when he moved back to New York, he didn't have to work for long before he was able to start his own firm.
His biggest piece of advice is not to worry about the future; when he was in high school, he wasted a year worrying about his final exams.
After he got through the tests, he realized that all of the stress and high expectations were for nothing; now tries to just live in the present.
