I made excuses then. But I had no idea. After calls to take care of your health and your finances, the most common piece of advice from people looking back at their year-old selves was an interesting one: they would go back and enforce stronger boundaries in their lives and dedicate their time to better people.
This never works. And in fact, it often makes it worse. Sometimes you have to be cruel to be kind. You matter, and your presence matters. Unfortunately, the older you get, well, things start to happen, and it will affect those closest to you. You can get money back and jobs back, but you can never get time back.
Be the person that others can count on when it does. I think that between 30 and 40 is the decade when a lot of shit finally starts to happen that you might have thought never would happen to you or those you love. Parents die, spouses die, babies are still-born, friends get divorced, spouses cheat… the list goes on and on.
Accept that. We believe that we have all of the time in the world. I myself remember having illusions that my website would be my first career of many. Little did I know that it took the better part of a decade to even get competent at this.
You can simply get more done in life if you focus on one thing and do it really well. Focus more. It takes a lot of sacrifice to achieve anything special in life. It may mean ditching a career they spent a decade building and giving up money they worked hard for and became accustomed to. Which brings us to… 6. The individuals that I have seen with the biggest regrets during this decade are those that stay in something that they know is not right.
It is such an easy decade to have the days turn to weeks to years, only to wake up at 40 with a mid-life crisis for not taking action on a problem they were aware of 10 years prior but failed to act. One left a lucrative job as a military engineer to become a teacher. Twenty years later, he called it one of the best decisions of his life.
Less fear. I am about to turn 50 next year, and I am just getting that lesson. Fear was such a detrimental driving force in my life at It impacted my marriage, my career, my self-image in a fiercely negative manner. I was guilty of: Assuming conversations that others might be having about me. Thinking that I might fail. Wondering what the outcome might be. If I could do it again, I would have risked more. Most people stop growing and working on themselves in their 20s.
Most people in their 30s are too busy to worry about self-improvement. Many readers related the choice of going back to school and getting their degrees in their 30s as one of the most useful things they had ever done.
Others talked of taking extra seminars and courses to get a leg up.
