This article I’m about to share isn’t exactly about civility or image, but I wanted to share it anyway because I think the life lessons included are worth passing on. For “10 Life Lessons To Excel In Your 30s,” writer Mark Manson asked countless “older” people to share the things they wish they had learned earlier. Though I am no longer 30, I think it’s a worthwhile read.
Many of the rules are practical, such as managing your finances and taking care of your health. My favorites, though, are the ones that talk of letting go of fear, respecting yourself, and continuing to grow and develop your character. I especially loved this advice from a 60-year-old woman named Nancy: “Be a little selfish and do something for yourself every day, something different once a month, and something spectacular every year.”
This year my “something spectacular” will be traveling to Southeast Asia. What about you? What wonderful things are you planning? And what advice would you give to someone in their 30s?
