Young, wild and free: Three ways to maximize your 20’s

“I look back on my 20’s, it’s supposed to be the prime of your life, the most vital, the most beautiful. But you are making your critical decisions and sometimes your most critical mistakes” – Ann Brashares.

Let’s just admit it, the 20s are chaotic, it feels like running a marathon and always wondering if you will make it to the finish line.

Here are three ways to maximise your 20’s.

1. Invest in a good education

You do not have all the time in the world, life has different seasons and you will not always have the same priorities. Investing in good education will not only help you have a good foundation to jumpstart your career but it will also help you remain grounded and focused on where you want to go. Even in the times that we are living in, experience in a particular field isn’t really enough to keep you longer in a job. So make wise decisions and have a plan for your studies now when you have the energy and when you have the time.

2. Be big on family

We spend so many years in school, both primary and high school and therefore we rarely get to know our family members outside the routine, well, except for special holidays and even then, we never really know who our parents and brothers and sisters really are and don’t even start with the extended family, some of us don’t even recognise our first cousins! It is important to take this time to find out who they are, where they are at emotionally, physically and mentally. It is through learning how to reach out and live with our families that we can know how to treat society. So take that trip and visit your married brother or sister, visit your younger sisters in school, your grandmother, your cousin, and show up for them, after all they are all we have!

3. Know your purpose and identity

Some go through a lifetime not knowing who they really were, why they made the choices they made, why they chose their life partners and generally go through life questioning everything. This is the time to know all of that, to find out your identity. This could be known through the friends we choose, the places we visit, the financial decisions we make, the movies we watch, the music we listen to, and so many other things that we do that create a pattern. Knowing yourself can include retracing back to your roots, your history and sometimes coming face to face with that can be a painful experience but let this be the season that you face your fears and determine the direction of your life. Knowing your purpose and identity helps you care for others and helps you be aware of how you should be treated that goes a long way with choosing your life partner.

How did you maximize your 20’s?
