I just recently started reading the warrior forum and thought I would briefly introduce myself and seek some advice from those who were in my shoes not too long ago. I graduated from college a couple years ago and took on a corporate job in litigation consulting but have since left that and have been doing a little searching ever since. My brother, who's been involved in IM for a couple years now, introduced me to the warrior forum and inspired me to learn more.
I'm very intrigued and inspired by the warrior forum community and the dedication and hard work exhibited by so many of you. To be completely honest, I've personally often sought the "short cut" approach to achieving things rather than full on hard work and persistence. I guess over time I'll have to balance working hard with working smart while ensuring that I don't lose my resolve.
So with that said, I'd like to ask everyone what they wish they knew when they started out and to solicit any actionable advice you guys may have. I love learning and sharing knowledge and am really looking forward to your responses.
