5 Tips to Learn Before Your 30s (Avoiding the Worst Life)

“Some people die at 25 and aren’t buried until 75.” -Benjamin Franklin

I’m not yet 30, but I know that many people are not living their best lives at this stage.

They have terrible health, finances, and overall quality of life, which is something I don’t want to experience.

In most cases, it begins with youth lacking sufficient knowledge and purpose. So if I had to give advice, it would be like this:

1. Find passion and learn skills.

Have you ever heard of the 10,000-hour rule? That’s controversial but true.

Research shows that putting in 10,000 hours of quality practice will get us to the top 0.1% of mastery. This is because constant and prolonged practice changes the neural pathways in the brain.

However, no one wants to do that unless it is their passion. So, find it first and then practice a lot.

You know, the experience can be monetized. Everyone would love to free themselves from their 9-to-5 jobs.

2. Educate about finances.
About 3 or 4 years ago, my friend from university bought an iPhone, which cost 14 times more than Android (widely used in my country).

He later complained about its lack of versatility, not being able to connect to a PC unless it’s Apple, and limited app options.

When I asked him, “Then why did you buy it?” She answered,

“I saw a girl using an iPhone on a train, and she looked cute. “I thought it would be cool if I had an iPhone too.”

In my mind, I thought, “Oh my God, you’re so dumb.”

Her decision irritated me, especially knowing that she came from a poor family.

People can’t afford those kinds of decision mistakes at age 30 when responsibilities increase. It is essential to learn about finances from the beginning.

Spending habits, like other bad habits, can be difficult to stop and can ruin our lives in the future.

3. Live healthily.

I always complain when my mother cooks eggs. It’s like they were fried, with oil everywhere.

I get irritated every time I see my little sister overeating, lying on her bed, and moving after her.

I don’t want to see them face health problems in the future, but they are careless.

I could talk a lot about how these bad habits ruin lives, but most people should already know that.

We are not cavemen.

To those reading this article, please:

· Exercise (jogging, cycling, exercising at home, gym)

· Eat healthy foods (rich in nutrition, low in fat, and high in carbohydrates).

· Stay hydrated (about 2 liters a day).

· Get enough sleep (7 to 8 hours a day).

· Do not smoke.

· Do not drink

If you are still in your 20s, this is your best chance. Be someone who lives healthier and longer when you’re older.

Remember, not everything can be fixed; everything has time.

4. Learn a lot.
I’m still 23 years old, but I want to learn more.

Cognitive ability declines with age, and I just learned that it starts around age 25. Therefore, we must learn a lot while we can.

Our mind is our greatest asset, especially for mental workers.

We will face bigger problems in the future, where childish thoughts will no longer be relevant.

Now, learning is easier than ever, thanks to the Internet. But be careful; it’s like a double-edged sword: either it gives you useless information or it gives you meaningful lessons.

5. Manage time wisely.

I have a drummer friend who is the most talented person I know. However, in his adolescence, he only trained when he wanted, drank a lot, and smoked.

You know, an ordinary young man is having fun.

But then, he couldn’t race against time, burying his talent. He now has to work from 9 to 5 and can no longer practice drums.

He never achieved anything significant and failed to gain the attention of the industry.

New responsibilities have come for him, which has forced him to change his youthful routine.

“The problem is that you think you have time,” Buddha said.

We must know that the only advantage that a young person has over an older one is time. But are we ready yet? Do the best we can.

Use time wisely, because life will not wait for us.
