13 thoughts on “What Advice Will Your 37 Year-old Self Give to Your 30 Year-old Self

    1. Hi CW,

      This is for u…

      Which brings me to the last quote, from Martin, age 58:

      “When I turned forty my father told me that I’d enjoy my 40s because in your 20s you think you know what’s going on, in your 30s you realize you probably don’t, and in your 40s you can relax and just accept things.

      I’m 58 and he was right!

  1. Hi Rolf

    This is a good piece of advise.

    Interesting to see how the advice would shifted from 20 to 30 to 40 and with us for the rest of our life.

    1. Hi B,

      Thanks v much.

      On one hand, I just realize this post (not intentional) is dedicated to you because of you are marching into the big 3…

      On another hand, it's not very relevant to you, because you already got almost all mentioned things splendidly right in your late 20s. It's incredibly admirable.


    1. Hi Jfree,

      I hope it will help u. Maybe u have a 27 yr old body n 30 plus yr old mind. Hmm… Maybe 20 yr old body due to ur occupation! Huat to you too!

  2. hello Rolf

    Most points are still applicable for mid thirties! Good reminders to put to practice. Thanks!

    1. Hi LC,

      U r right. Maybe applicable in all our life too! I think maybe we should hear what kind of advices from our local blog space for those in the 40s / 50s (u included??? ) to provide for 20s / 30s!

    1. Hi AhJohn,

      Tks for commenting.
      Yeah. Advice consolidated from 600 people matured enough, so should be valid. But good advice only becomes good when practice though. 🙂

    Mark Manson writes some really great articles from time to time – cool to come across another reader of his writings from Singapore. He started out writing advice for aspiring pickup artists but has shifted to writing for the mainstream. Don't think he's South American though, he started out being based in Boston and he's white.

    1. Hi RetailTrader,

      Tks for commenting. Agree with u that Mark Manson is a great self help writer, esp when it's quite rare you find younger ones around,who learn and appreciate life so much. One reason is he travelled around the world 55 countries in 5yrs incl Singapore.

      I cannot remember why I stumbled into his webpage sometimes last year when I was abroad. But I was amazed how true it is for the advices he consolidated.

      Nice to hear that we are aligned in appreciating his great work. Yes, I also read somewhere before that he is South American origin. That was his old blog. Seems like now, he is more commercial having becoming famous!
