2. Spend some time traveling around Europe.
Updated September 18, 2009
I’m not sure why young people feel like they’re in such a hurry to live their lives – I remember feeling like I had to hurry up and get everything done. Hurry up and finish college, hurry up and get married, hurry up and find a career.
Now I look back at that time and I wonder, what was the rush? Why didn’t I take six months or a year and just travel around, visiting all the places I wanted to see? Because I rushed, rushed, rushed myself into a pile of debt and responsibility that makes such a thing impossible.
I haven’t given up hope, though. I’ll still spend long stretches of time traveling abroad. With the way the world is shaping up, I barely need more than a laptop and an internet connection to be able to go just about anywhere and get work done – leaving hours of each day left for exploring and experiencing.
