I’m nearing my thirties and as I do it is really beginning to set in that I won’t be young forever–and that’s OK. There’s a time for everything including being young and old. I look at people like Steve Jobs and realize that he was arguably most productive during his forties. Look at Richard Branson in his sixties–he’s building a space tourism industry! Age is not a problem to me. What is a big problem is wasting time that you’ll never get back. While you can still be productive in your sixties you can never go back and relive your twenties and make them any more productive. All the more reason to take a stab at something hard–it will pay off and the sooner the better. Taking the obvious a bit further, you can never use lost time to learn and stack that learning on top of more learning. Sure, you can always start learning new things wherever and whenever you are in your life but you could be so much further ahead if you had started sooner. Hey I like to waste time playing video games as much as the next guy, but I also make sure to fit the accomplishments into my life that I want to at this stage. I guess what I’m trying to say is you have to get a head start on what you really want to do with your life. If you wait too long you are going to be putting yourself in a big hole. Thanks captain obvious (me).
