What you need to learn about are the needs of your own users, and you can't do that until you actually start the company. So starting a startup is intrinsically something you can only really learn by doing it. And it's impossible to do that in college, for the reason I just explained: startups take over your life.

You can't start a startup for real as a student, because if you start a startup for real you're not a student anymore. You may be nominally a student for a bit, but you won't even be that for long.

Given this dichotomy, which of the two paths should you take? How to start a startup is just a subset of a bigger problem you're trying to solve: how to have a good life. Be a real student and not start a startup, or start a real startup and not be a student? And though starting a startup can be part of a good life for a lot of ambitious people, age 20 is not the optimal time to do it.

Starting a startup is like a brutally fast depth-first search. Most people should still be searching breadth-first at You can do things in your early 20s that you can't do as well before or after, like plunge deeply into projects on a whim and travel super cheaply with no sense of a deadline. For unambitious people, this sort of thing is the dreaded "failure to launch," but for the ambitious ones it can be an incomparably valuable sort of exploration. If you start a startup at 20 and you're sufficiently successful, you'll never get to do it.

Mark Zuckerberg will never get to bum around a foreign country. He can do other things most people can't, like charter jets to fly him to foreign countries. But success has taken a lot of the serendipity out of his life. Facebook is running him as much as he's running Facebook.

And while it can be very cool to be in the grip of a project you consider your life's work, there are advantages to serendipity too, especially early in life. Among other things it gives you more options to choose your life's work from.

You're not sacrificing anything if you forgo starting a startup at 20, because you're more likely to succeed if you wait. The answer is the fifth counterintuitive point: you can't tell. In the unlikely case that you're 20 and one of your side projects takes off like Facebook did, you'll face a choice of running with it or not, and it may be reasonable to run with it. If I haven't, let me try again: starting a startup is really hard.

Your life so far may have given you some idea what your prospects might be if you tried to become a mathematician, or a professional football player. But the usual way startups take off is for the founders to make them take off, and it's gratuitously stupid to do that at But unless you've had a very strange life you haven't done much that was like being a startup founder. So what you're trying to estimate is not just what you are, but what you could grow into, and who can do that?

For the past 9 years it was my job to predict whether people would have what it took to start successful startups. It was easy to tell how smart they were, and most people reading this will be over that threshold.

The hard part was predicting how tough and ambitious they would become. There may be no one who has more experience at trying to predict that, so I can tell you how much an expert can know about it, and the answer is: not much. I learned to keep a completely open mind about which of the startups in each batch would turn out to be the stars. Some arrive feeling sure they will ace Y Combinator just as they've aced every one of the few, artificial, easy tests they've faced in life so far.

Others arrive wondering how they got in, and hoping YC doesn't discover whatever mistake caused it to accept them. But there is little correlation between founders' initial attitudes and how well their companies do. I've read that the same is true in the military — that the swaggering recruits are no more likely to turn out to be really tough than the quiet ones. And probably for the same reason: that the tests involved are so different from the ones in their previous lives.

If you're absolutely terrified of starting a startup, you probably shouldn't do it. But if you're merely unsure whether you're up to it, the only way to find out is to try.

Ideas So if you want to start a startup one day, what should you do in college? Which leads to our sixth and last counterintuitive point: that the way to get startup ideas is not to try to think of startup ideas. There are only two things you need initially: an idea and cofounders. I've written a whole essay on this, so I won't repeat it all here. But the short version is that if you make a conscious effort to think of startup ideas, the ideas you come up with will not merely be bad, but bad and plausible-sounding, meaning you'll waste a lot of time on them before realizing they're bad.

The way to come up with good startup ideas is to take a step back. Instead of making a conscious effort to think of startup ideas, turn your mind into the type that startup ideas form in without any conscious effort.

In fact, so unconsciously that you don't even realize at first that they're startup ideas. This is not only possible, it's how Apple, Yahoo, Google, and Facebook all got started. None of these companies were even meant to be companies at first.

The best startups almost have to start as side projects, because great ideas tend to be such outliers that your conscious mind would reject them as ideas for companies. Ok, so how do you turn your mind into the type that startup ideas form in unconsciously?

The third part, incidentally, is how you get cofounders at the same time as the idea. The first time I wrote that paragraph, instead of "learn a lot about things that matter," I wrote "become good at some technology.

What was special about Brian Chesky and Joe Gebbia was not that they were experts in technology. They were good at design, and perhaps even more importantly, they were good at organizing groups and making projects happen.

History is full of examples of young people who were working on important problems that no one else at the time thought were important, and in particular that their parents didn't think were important.

So you don't have to work on technology per se, so long as you work on problems demanding enough to stretch you. On the other hand, history is even fuller of examples of parents who thought their kids were wasting their time and who were right.

So how do you know when you're working on real stuff? Real problems are interesting, and I am self-indulgent in the sense that I always want to work on interesting things, even if no one else cares about them in fact, especially if no one else cares about them , and find it very hard to make myself work on boring things, even if they're supposed to be important.

My life is full of case after case where I worked on something just because it seemed interesting, and it turned out later to be useful in some worldly way. Y Combinator itself was something I only did because it seemed interesting. So I seem to have some sort of internal compass that helps me out. But I don't know what other people have in their heads. Maybe if I think more about this I can come up with heuristics for recognizing genuinely interesting problems, but for the moment the best I can offer is the hopelessly question-begging advice that if you have a taste for genuinely interesting problems, indulging it energetically is the best way to prepare yourself for a startup.

But although I can't explain in the general case what counts as an interesting problem, I can tell you about a large subset of them. If you think of technology as something that's spreading like a sort of fractal stain, every moving point on the edge represents an interesting problem. So one guaranteed way to turn your mind into the type that has good startup ideas is to get yourself to the leading edge of some technology — to cause yourself, as Paul Buchheit put it, to "live in the future.

You may not realize they're startup ideas, but you'll know they're something that ought to exist. For example, back at Harvard in the mid 90s a fellow grad student of my friends Robert and Trevor wrote his own voice over IP software. He didn't mean it to be a startup, and he never tried to turn it into one.

He just wanted to talk to his girlfriend in Taiwan without paying for long distance calls, and since he was an expert on networks it seemed obvious to him that the way to do it was turn the sound into packets and ship it over the Internet.

He never did any more with his software than talk to his girlfriend, but this is exactly the way the best startups get started. So strangely enough the optimal thing to do in college if you want to be a successful startup founder is not some sort of new, vocational version of college focused on "entrepreneurship.

If you want to start a startup after college, what you should do in college is learn powerful things. And if you have genuine intellectual curiosity, that's what you'll naturally tend to do if you just follow your own inclinations. The component of entrepreneurship that really matters is domain expertise.

The way to become Larry Page was to become an expert on search. And the way to become an expert on search was to be driven by genuine curiosity, not some ulterior motive. At its best, starting a startup is merely an ulterior motive for curiosity. And you'll do it best if you introduce the ulterior motive toward the end of the process.

So here is the ultimate advice for young would-be startup founders, boiled down to two words: just learn. Notes[] It shouldn't be that surprising that colleges can't teach students how to be good startup founders, because they can't teach them how to be good employees either. The way universities "teach" students how to be employees is to hand off the task to companies via internship programs.

But you couldn't do the equivalent thing for startups, because by definition if the students did well they would never come back. It was only because he was otherwise unoccupied, to a degree that alarmed his family, that he could accept it.

And yet if he hadn't we probably would not know his name. Could you endure studying literary theory, or working in middle management at a large company? Back when students focused mainly on getting a job after college, they thought at least a little about how the courses they took might look to an employer. Y Combinator certainly never asks what classes you took in college or what grades you got in them. And perhaps even worse, they might shy away from taking a difficult class lest they get a low grade, which would harm their all-important GPA.

Bored doing homework Jackson Pollock — was the founder of the Abstract Expressionist Movement in art. This was the first truly American artform and its development had worldwide repercussions. The initial formulations leading to the creation of this form of painting occurred while the artist was in psychiatric treatment and at a point when his bipolar illness was showing improvement.

Oil,enamel, aluminum, paint,string and cigarette fragment on canvas. He achieved this creation through the healthy janusian process. Pollock used alcohol in excess to deal with his mood upheavals.

In an unusual public presentation of psychiatric treatment, Dr. Hendersen, who became Founder of the Jungian Institute in San Francisco, gave an open lecture to colleagues about his therapy of Jackson Pollock from late to September Although the exact sequence of the creation of the artworks is not known, a distinctly early one is shown in Figure 2.

It is a large, brightly colored drawing with a suggestion of an Aztec or other native Mexican icon. There was little in the early group of drawings of the generative originality of his late abstract expressionistic work. At this point, he had also sustained definite although temporary improvement in his illness. During the summer of , he was devoid of moodiness and anxiety, attending parties where he was the only person abstaining from drinking.

His artworks of this time, as described by curator and art critic C. Pollock spoke explicitly later of working to obscure images and symbols and to express them at the same time 2. This breakthrough idea, which achieved representation in the drip paintings see Figure 1 where formed images can be vaguely discerned , is an instance of the janusian process—actively conceiving multiple opposites or antitheses simultaneously. Opposites of obscuring and expressing were by Pollock actively conceived simultaneously in the drawings done during The janusian process is not a matter of dialectical thinking where opposites are posited sequentially and contradictions are superseded or resolved, nor is it a matter of Jungian fusing of opposites.

Opposites and contradictions such as obscuring and revealing are posited or presented simultaneously and developed into a final product. It is a conscious process and, unlike psychopathological processes, which involve rigidity, irrationality, extreme self-absorption and self-focus, the janusian process is flexible and rationally based as well as directed toward other human beings and the environment.

Hendersen progressed further, Pollock began a period of intense activity. We are sure that if he is able to hold himself together his work will become of real significance. The breakthrough had occurred during the therapy with Dr. Henderson J: Jackson Pollock: A psychological commentary.

Henderson, a therapy Pollock spoke of positively for the rest of his life. Bipolar disorder, although it may exist concurrently with creativity, does not convey a special gift. Creative persons must struggle to deal with, or overcome, the effects of illness through psychological creative processes which are in themselves healthy and adaptive.

The disorder itself, like any mental illness, brings suffering rather than accomplishment. Further testimony for this point comes from the experiences of two outstanding American poets, Robert Lowell and Theodore Roethke, both of whom had well documented bipolar illness.

How to start a career in creative writing "The Great Gatsby" is one of the most famous of all American novels. In this sample paper, an Ultius writer analyzes the characters of Jay Gatsby and Myrtle Wilson and what the two have in common.

The paper argues that both characters are social climbers, and may be more alike than a cursory read might reveal. Neither is satisfied with their modest beginnings and both desire the accumulation of material wealth in a quest to better their societal standing—a preoccupation that leads to disastrous consequences. While Gatsby and Myrtle are hardly the only characters in the novel with an fascination with wealth and accumulation of status, their humble roots and their overwhelming desire to disguise them are what set them apart from the other characters.

Their conviction that they will never be able to ascend to the highest strata of society without amassing wealth and material goods forms an unmistakable link between the two characters. Gatsby and Myrtle strive for wealth and luxury at all costs in an attempt to validate themselves and erase their true backgrounds, and as a result their characters represent the dark underbelly of the American obsession with consumerism and materialism. Jay Gatsby is the prototypical child of poverty who amasses wealth as a defense against his shame over his true beginnings.

The most grotesque and fantastic conceits haunted him in his bed at night. While a desire to surmount the obstacles of poverty is certainly no vice, from an early age Gatsby longs not for basic necessities but for ostentatious demarcations of wealth and status that he believes will open the door to a more fulfilling life.

This overwhelming desire for material signifiers of luxury and prestige in an attempt to overcome the stigma of an impoverished background is paralleled in the character of Myrtle Wilson. Visit the Ultius glossary for more information on literary character types.

With the influence of the dress her personality had also undergone a change. She is incapable of possessing any modicum of self-confidence without the external validation she finds through the aggregation of consumer goods and wealth.

This is a trend we see paralleled in the actions of Jay Gatsby. Gatsby also uses his material possessions to legitimize himself in the eyes of others in an attempt to overcompensate for his impoverished background. Gatsby, just like Myrtle, uses his possessions, and clothes in particular, to signify his worth to those around him.

He is incapable of separating his value as a person from the value of his belongings, and this attitude is the foundation of his character and an indubitable result of his feeling that he is an imposter amongst the monied social elites with whom he surrounds himself. Myrtle is also congenitally incapable of moderating the importance of possessions to her worldview as a result of her destitute background. Both Myrtle and Gatsby are afflicted with a crippling need to flaunt whatever wealth they can amass in an attempt to conceal the insecurities inherent to those who come from the working class.

This parallel between the two characters has long been noted by scholars of the novel.The authorized persons are the principal, guidance councilor, the head of the computer subjects and one school coordinator.
