So here's the name of the game.
State your age (relative age is okay like, I'm in my 20's or 30's). Then state what advice you would give to yourself 5-10 years ago (say how many years ago too).
I'll give two examples, one from a co-worker and one from myself.
Co-worker: 30's advice for 10 years back
30's co-worker to himself 10 years ago wrote:Go out and live life. Take the risk. Anything that you're thinking 'Eh, maybe not or eh, maybe later', go do it now".
Okita's advice in his 20's for himself 5 years ago wrote:Screw the 5-10 year plan. You can convince yourself so much about what you believe and want based upon what other people tell you and then realize you are dead wrong. You've got your interests and your own strengths so play to those instead of trying to follow what looks like to be the best optimal path that you're not emotionally invested in. Sure, it will probably be less lucrative as the "best" path but if you're not into what you're doing on the "best" path then you're setting yourself to fail.
Anyway, I'm curious as to what other people would have told themselves.
