What is the biggest mistake you can make in your 20’s?
What should you be focused on, more than anything else (hint: it’s NOT women and dating)?
What is the most important activity for you to do by the age of 30?
In this week’s episode of the Lifestyle Arts Podcast, I cover the 3 most important pieces of advice for men in their 20’s.
A few weeks ago, I was doing some clothes shopping in NYC on my birthday (43!). The young man helping me, aged 23, asked me if I had any advice for a guy 20 years younger than me.
I paused, and my mind quickly assembled these 3 pieces of advice. I’ve had a few weeks to think about it, and I still believe these 3 are absolutely essential:
1) Don’t take a corporate job
2) Travel the world
3) Don’t get married
Guess which one is the most important?
This episode has a lot of meaning for me, mostly because I didn’t follow one of these and am still making up for lost time on that front (#1, in fact).
But, I firmly believe, that if a guy adheres to these three very simple pieces of advice, he will have an extraordinary life.
I welcome your comments/feedback on these below, particularly if you think I’ve left out something essential here.
- Henry David Thoreau’s “Walden”
- Tim Ferriss’ “Four Hour Work Week”
- Emerson’s “Essential Writings”
- Rolf Potts “Vagabonding”
- Stephen Nash “How to Get a Girlfriend”
