Clinical psychologist Meg Jay says 30 is not the new 20.
And that 80% of life’s most defining moments happen by our mid-30’s.
The first ten years of a career, which usually begins in earnest during our 20’s has exponential impact on earning power – that’s how important that decade is.
The brain rewires itself for adulthood in the 20’s so as Dr. Jay says if you want to change it, that’s the time.
Our personalities change in our 20’s more than any other time of life.
Today, postponing this important ten-year progression is validated by society. We’re making a mistake by telling 20-somethings that they have an “extra” ten years yet to accomplish the important things that usually begin in their 20’s.
But this applies to all age groups.
There is always tomorrow.
We’re living longer.
We can multitask and cram everything in life in.
But it’s actually the opposite.
Whether true or not, the secret is to live as if today is the last day we have. That feeds the urgency necessary to live life to the fullest and keep growing at any age.
“To achieve great things, you need a plan and not enough time” – Leonard Bernstein
