Advice from 80-year-old me I use to think, what if I could talk to younger me? When I was a boy, or in my 30s? I would say to me Learn more, study harder, do your homework Don’t be so materialist Be more patient, more tolerant, more willing to open up Share your feeling and thoughts, your fears and passions with the ones you love and that love you. It’s ok to say you don’t understand, to say you are afraid, to say you don’t know, to ask for help But, I can’t do that What if older, 80-year old me, could speak? What would he say? I’d image he would tell me how great thing are The World is still a wonderful place despite your concerns in 2016 But, he’d say, you’ve been resting on your laurels, you’re still young and you have a lot ahead of you It good that you have tried to push your kids to be better What are you doing to be better, to be great? That bucket list you started a few months ago, finish it and do it Be bold with it, so what if you don’t succeed with all of it. And not just a “to do” bucket list, but a “to be” bucket list as well. Share it and put it out to the world, you know now how powerful that is Put yourself out to the world Share what you know with younger people Get that idea notebook out of your desk and start filling it up Share your ideas, work to make them happen What are you waiting for…
