Being an Adult, Keeping Identity Small, And How You Are Stressing More Instead of Relaxing
Are You An Adult
When you are in your late teens or in your late 20s, you think you are an adult. But you don’t act like one. You are in high school or in college or working a job, you don’t act like an adult.
You think you still have time. You don’t realize that time is the only thing that you don’t have.
The distinction between an adult and a kid in his 20s is that he hasn’t taken responsibility. He still depends on others.
Taking responsibility doesn’t mean earning a living only. Yes, it does but it's a small part of it. You have to take intellectual responsibility. You have to realize that you have to get things done.
Getting things done is about having a tangible outcome. Learn how to write. Learn to code. Learn to communicate your ideas.
Don’t just write, publish. Don’t just code, develop an app. Don’t just learn to communicate, influence people.
Don’t just do theory, be practical. Get some results out there in the real world.
You are not rewarded for your knowledge. You are rewarded for the results you produce out of that knowledge.
Wherever you are, be it in college, high school, or working a job, take responsibility. Realize that you need to get things done.
Most people have this realization way too late in their life. I had this when I was 20. I wish someone told me earlier.
You need to get things done. Take responsibility.
