As I enter a new decade of my life, I've been reflecting a lot of what I've learned in my 20s. On the one hand, it makes sense that I've learned lesson, grown, and matured into a stronger man. But it actually wasn't until I was speaking with an intern who was just entering his 20s that I realized just how much knowledge I had accumulated and could pass along. Which got me thinking what an incredible resource we all our for each other when it comes to life lessons being shared. Of course it's a much easier to learn when you've experienced something first hand, but a little empathy along the way can make you feel less alone during those tougher times. Which is why I thought it'd be a fun little crowd-sourcing experiment to compile all our our collective wisdom into one post. I want each and every one of you out there to tell us a defining lesson of each decade you've lived starting with your 20s. So for example if you're 62 you'd have a lesson from your 20s, 30s, 40s, and 50s for us. Feel free to list one from each or a select few, just as long as you contribute.
With enough submission, I'll take the very best of the lessons and cull them down into one post. There's so much we can learn from one another and many benefits that we can pass along from our mistakes, experiences, and interactions.
Bonus points for listing which decade you learned the most in.
