20s (age) – What are the most difficult things people have to learn in their twenties.


Here are some things I really, really wish I knew when I was twenty.

  • Love hurts, but not as much as not loving.
  • The friendships you nurture will have a greater effect on your life than where you work or what you earn.
  • You are not your job. You are not your bankroll. You are not the sum of your possessions
  • Few decisions will ever shape your future life more than who you choose to marry. To marry well, you must choose well
  • Love is a commitment.
  • Find a passion. Pick a hobby, own it: photography, juggling—whatever. Get your 10K hours of perfect practice in early and change your life
  • Don’t bother comparing yourself to others—this only leads to heartbreak, anger, and disappointment.
  • Don’t drive others to meet expectations they’ve committed to — lead, inspire, and help them do it.
  • Don’t set expectations for others when they haven’t or cannot commit to them.
  • Don’t complain. Either change your situation, learn to cope, or change your perspective
  • Don’t worry about making big bucks out of the gate, worry first about doing whatever you have to do excellently.
  • Failure is an opportunity: no great man or woman ever achieved significance without great failures to learn from.
  • Everybody needs an editor. Everybody.
  • Get your work done first so you can play without guilt. Even better, make work play and the fun never ends!
  • If you’re bored, you’re doing it wrong.
  • Nothing in this life—no pain, no agony, no failure—compares to the eternal joy of Heaven. Live in light of eternity

I’m still learning — in fact I haven’t fully appreciated most of the list I made, myself. And I’m still adding to it. But I’m getting better.
