Well it is official, I am in the last year of my 20s. Seriously where did the time go? It feels like yesterday I was graduating undgrad bright eyed and excited to see where I would land. Since then I’ve moved seven times, married my favorite person in the world, added two snuggly beagles to our family, built and bought our first home, travel a lot (including spending my birthday in London!), graduated with my MBA and started my own business. I am so happy with all I’ve done and where I am, but wow your 20s are truly transformational and a little overwhelming.
Everything is a Learning Lesson
As much as I love to plan (because in marketing if you don’t plan, you plan to fail), pretty much nothing in life or in business goes as planned. Lots of people would call this failure, and many say you have to fail to succeed. However, I’ve decided to not view this as failure but as a lesson because when things don’t go as planned there are two ways people react 1) they give up and move on 2) they learn from it, try again or try a different approach.
I think failure is giving up. My mindset this year has been the latter, learning from it and trying again.
Health is a Priority
I’ll be honest, health has not been a priority for me the last few years. It went on the back burner when I went to grad school, went even more to the back burner after my dad passed away (during grad school), and then even more when launching Advisori. To add to the mix, I love food + wine. Woof.
In the past month or so, I have finally started refocusing on health and making it a priority. The biggest thing I’ve noticed, even though it hasn’t been that long, is that I have some much more energy! And more energy means I’m happier (because who isn’t grumpy when they’re tired?) and I am so much more productive!
You’ll never be happy if you compare yourself to others
Nothing positive will come from comparing what other people have or have accomplished to yourself. Each of us is motivated by different things, which means different things make us happy.
