The energy gain from this change in perspective can be massive! I'm certainly more productive when operating from a mindset of 'look how much closer I am to my goal and how much I've achieved!' than if I were beating myself up about what I had left to do. I'm sure you will be too.

As a GCSE student this year, I felt as if I was in the same boat as thousands of students across the country - a boat that felt like it was sinking at some point during exam season. I was fed up, tired, bored and couldn't wait to finish the long months that swallowed up my time.

Simply, you can't. I certainly wasn't prepared. I knew after my exams that my chances of achieving what was necessary were slim but I hoped I was wrong. Isn't that what we all do? Hold on to hope. Even if our son messes it up, he will rage for a bit, get hysterical but until the verdict is delivered on the morning of 17th August he will still hold onto hope.

What isn't remembered or talked about is how much money we made, how big our house was, what car we drove, how successful we were in our career, or anything else acquired through money, status and power, and yet many of us spend a disproportionate amount of our time and effort trying to "succeed" at these things.

So, is the moral of Julian's story to quit your day job and pursue your dreams? No, of course not. It's about realising that if following your dreams is what you truly want to do, you should go for it and never be afraid of the consequences. It's all about believing in yourself (as cliché as this is) and going for it from that point onwards. Some people are always going to be dreamers and some are always going to be do-ers and if being a do-er is what you want to be, you can.

I am just going to come out and say it; the twenties are the new thirties. There is too much pressure on young adults to have it all figured it out before they hit their thirties and this can make it very difficult to search for happiness when you're too busy finding your purpose in life.

If you're wondering, I still don't have a plan. Everyday is still fraught with some navel-gazing existential crisis. I still think about moving to the sea and getting a dog. I'm sure I'll finish that novel and change the world. But if I do those things, it won't be so other people can perceive me as successful. It'll be so I can find some modicum of unspoilt happiness, and in quiet moments of reflection, I can say "Gee. I'm really something."
