Don't stress over hair loss, you'll end up shaving your head and you look way better, it's cheaper, easier to deal with and chicks super dig it.

Pursue everything that interests you, in the tiniest possible way each day, to allow room for many projects. These tiny investments will compound. Growth won't be perceivable day to day. But over time you'll learn your interests, learn your strengths, learn your particular brain's workways. You'll eventually narrow your interests to the ones that fit best, incorporating what you learned in other now-abandoned domains.
