We’re in the end of 2021. I’m gratitude because this year has taught me a lot on how to be a better designer.

I’ve been working for different projects whether work from the office or freelance. 2021 also taught me how to work with different type of clients, how to stay calm and think clearly in hard situation, worked collaboratively with multiple stakeholders, and hone my product design skill.

We can count days now and we will be in 2022. I have several things that I want to do within 5 years from now especially in professional area.

Running profitable product design studio

After working with client for many years as an employee in a agency and freelance work. I want to have a partner so that we can will build product design studio together.

In the design studio that I will create, we will help our clients designing their digital products and make it really good. When I really good, I mean it. Make it different and better than average.

I also want to work with famous startup and well-known people. Startups, Big Brands, People from Twitter or community.

Being profitable is important here. I want to give top salary for the team. It will be my responsibility to find and experiment with business models.

I also want to buy or invest in other profitable business. Just like what Tiny Capital has been doing.

Making own digital product

I also want to build my own startup later. Next year in 2022 I will be joining a new startup called Finblox. There I will be helping them in charge in design side. I will contribute and learn as much as possible how to build and run small startup organisation.

From that experience, I will use it to build my own team and startup. Probably SaaS, Micro service, or other thing related with investment and productivity tool.

It also possible to build startup while running product design studio as long as I can make the studio run without me.

Investing in people and early stage startup

This is also something that I want to learn and do. I want to invest in early-stage startup. Peter Hoang, CEO of Finblox is a person who did it before. I will learn from him the knowledge and strategy.

There are popular platform that I know at the moment to join investing in an early-stage startup such as Republic and Angel List.

Probably I will invest in Indonesian Startups and people.

Travelling overseas

This year, I had an opportunity to work at Ledger in Paris, France but I say now because of some concerns. These some countries in Europe, Japan, Singapore that I want to visit in my bucket lists. 

I want to work and live there at least few months to feel the living rhythm.

Be Financially Freedom

Yes, I include this on this list as well. I want to make good money so that I can invest it back which hopefully in the end will give me enough passive income.

State of freedom because of strong finance situation will also help me to focus on the things that I can learn much without worrying about money.

That’s all of things that I want to do within 5 years from now.
