Essentials for Recent Grads
I find myself giving advice to recent grads or people in their early 20s about how to navigate the swirliness that is early-real-adult-life. How do I navigate my career choices? Do I take the job with the sweet salary or this other thing that doesn’t pay so well…but is kinda cool in a way I can’t quite explain?
There’s a lot to say. But frankly, people are often overwhelmed by the time they’re asking these questions. So let’s get our Thoreau on and simplify, simplify, simplify.
There are really only 4 things you need to do in your early 20s:
- Find way to work you love
- Learn how to manage money and don’t fuck it up
- Develop good habits
- Learn communication skills
Nail these and you’ll not only have a great life in your early 20s, you’ll be well set up beyond that also.
