Debt Free

This goal seems a little out of reach, but I want to pay off the debt on my family.

 

I think I will finally have some calm when I achieve this goal and I can finally rest in peace.

FIRE
Financial Independence Retire Early

Image by Visual Stories || Micheile

Ever since I was a little boy, I have dreamed of this.

 

I want to be free from the bondage of money.

 

I want to wake up and just live life. I want to go to the park and just sit there. I want to go to the beach and enjoy the sound of the waves. I want sit all day staring at the wall and witness my mind at work. I want to create art free from the idea of having some utility.  

I want to simply be. And not be a burden to anyone.

This money will be invested in an investment portfolio and the dividends will be used to pay my bills.

300k at 4% interest will yield 12k per year which will cover my rent, utilities and food.

Progress- $0/$300,000

 

Giving Back

A lot of people are responsible for my success. And I want to give back to all of them. 

If I have accomplished all my previous goals, I am a mature tree and it's time I bear fruit for others to eat and prosper. 

I want to start scholarships in the schools I have been to and help the next generation achieve their goals and ambitions, just like the generation before me helped me to achieve mine.

 

This is the cycle of life. 

Idea-

The idea is really simple.

I will set up an investment portfolio for each of these institutions and I will contribute money to the portfolio till each one has $100,000. Every year, the profits earned through the dividends will be distributed to the students in the form of scholarships. A 100k portfolio will yield $4000 dollars every year.

I hope our children have every opportunity that we wish we had. Hopefully they will grow up and do beautiful things that continue to inspire us. Who knows? Perhaps, one of them will start scholarships like me, and perhaps one of them will figure out something better.

Grammy

A Grammy is a symbol of Greatness. It is something that I covet.

It is my deep desire to show my musical prowess.

And a Grammy is an external confirmation of something that I know deep inside.

I know the music inside me and it is bursting.

The friction between what I hear inside and what I can execute is something that is quite painful. But I enjoy the pain.

My limited time on earth is spent on decreasing the difference between my abilities and my dreams.

It has led me to thoughts of incorporating Artificial Intelligence and Brain Computer Interfaces in my music creating process.

I want to achieve greatness. I want to experience it. I want to know it.

I want to win one before I embark on my Journey of Medicine.

I want to win one before 2030. I don't know how I am going to do it. But I have seen the future. Now I have to create it.

 

Super Bowl Half Time Show

A dream keeps repeating itself to me where I am dancing on the Super Bowl Stage and putting on a great show!

Along the lines of Bruno Mars's first Super Bowl Performance.

I think that was the best Super Bowl Performance and I want to create a live performance which makes the whole world come alive.

 

Music, Dance, Lights, Stars, Energy, Life and Death 

The nature of my existence

The peak of my life

My moment in time on a Cosmic Scale 

A collection of atoms expressing itself in all it's capacity

The Universe experiencing consciousness through me

Me witnessing the creator at work through my body

Greatness manifesting itself

A dream that is a beacon of hope

That no matter what you've gone through,

Your dream is possible!

Uniting the World

During the time that I have been alive, I have seen Hindu Muslim fights, Riots, Terrorism and Wars. 

 

As long as people act from a place of scarcity, there will always be war. Wars are never going to go away, they are just way too fun.

 

That's why, I am going to change the rules of engagement.

 

Idea-

I will start World War 3

 

Instead of fighting with guns, I am going to fight with guitars. 

Instead of fighting with missiles, I am going to fight with animated music videos. 

Instead of fighting with drones, I am going to fight by programming Video Games.

Instead of fighting with Nuclear weapons, I am going to fight by creating a functioning Fusion Reactor.

Instead of fighting with rockets, I am going to mine asteroids and build a Dyson Sphere.

Instead of fighting with miscommunication, I am going to fight by learning the language of the enemy and write offensive jokes.

I want to take all that negative energy and direct it in a positive direction. So that, even after the fight, both people come out stronger.

I'm not against hate, I just want to channel it in a positive direction.

I am going to die in 2155. This is the hill I am going to die on.

The enemy is not the other person, The enemy is lack of consciousness.

If I can empower the individual, by inspiring them, then I can bring about a transformation in the world.

I am going to change the world. In order to accomplish this goal, I just need just one thing from you.

I want you to improve your life and I want you to improve the lives of the people around you. I want you to create something truly of value. I want you to create something that will serve zillions of people for trillions of generations.

You are powerful, you are abundant, you have been given the gift of human intelligence.

 

You can do anything. I believe in you!

Brain Computer Interface (Helping people with Disabilities)

Every morning I wake up and I thank God for all my limbs, for the ability to see, to hear, to think and to learn.

I have everything that a human can ask for. 

My whole life, I have always had a roof over my head, there has never been a single day that I went to bed hungry.

I have always been blessed with family and friends.

I have been very fortunate to have received a good education and been brought up in a family full of love.

I am very fortunate to have been blessed by God.

In the 27 years that I have lived, I have always tried to figure out my life's purpose.

I pursued every interest that I have had and I got pretty far.

And it is only now that I am starting to understand the gravity of my gifts.

I am a very powerful man and I can accomplish anything I set my mind to.

Once I see the vision, with enough information and sleep, I am able to see the path to get there. 

Something feels very unjust to me about how I have had so much and some have had so little.

Why did I get more and why did others not get as much? 

Why can I see, hear, think and learn and some can't?

One can make an argument that it makes for good jokes...

But behind every joke, there is truth.

I remember Mark Rober raising money for this organization called NEXT for Autism. 

I was busking at the time and I had raised about $600 for it as well. 

One thing he said, that hurt me a lot, was how his son would never be able to do certain things. 

At the time, I felt helpless. I thought that if someone as smart as Mark can't figure this out, how can someone like me do it?

It took some time but I realized that I thought too highly of him and I forgot that he is a mortal. Just like me.

That he is going to die, just like me. 

That in order to think that I can make a difference, I have to believe that I can.

And just because someone else can't see the solution, doesn't mean that I won't see it either. 

There is always the first.

Perhaps, I'm the first. 

Perhaps, I'm the one.

The way to get there is really simple.

Acquire a lot of information on the subjects through books and experience and then sleep.

When you are sleeping, the neurons keeps growing and when you wake up, you get a dream you haven't seen before.

This is simply because your neurons were growing without you directing their growth.

If you capture that dream, you will be able to see the new connections.

The connections are really fragile and break when you are completely awake. 

Which is why it is so important to capture that dream(the fragile neural network after you wake up)

This has been my creative process and I have seen it work time and time again. 

As I have been learning more over the years, the dreams have been getting more vivid and detailed. 

I must say, it is a very pleasurable experience. Sometimes, I feel like, I get to see a glimpse of the future.

In 2030, I am going to go to medical school to become a Doctor with a specialization in Neuroscience.

After that, I will study computer engineering and try to create a device that can connect to the brain.

Of course, this dream feels a little far fetched. 

Honestly, I don't think I am smart enough to find the solution.

But I know one thing, I am the most persistent guy I know.

And if I can't find the solution. I will make sure I make a lot of good mistakes

So that the ones who come after me, start at a further starting line. 

 
 

Huion Kamvas 16 Pro(ACHIEVED!)

I want to upgrade to this Pen Tablet so that I can animate more efficiently and make better videos going forward!

I want to make animated music videos and bring my dreams come to life. Some of my dreams are too abstract to explain in words. The only way I could do them some justice is by expressing them through animation.

In order to be completely portable, I need a good PA system and a mixer which I will use for sound at different venues. I have spoken with people about which equipment would be best and serve me in the long term and I've shortlisted it to an Electro Voice Speaker and a Yamaha 10 channel Mixer.
