Twentysomething? Time to get moving.
Around two-thirds of lifetime wage growth happens in the first ten years of a career. Your twenties, therefore, are critically important not just professionally but for life-long development.
This is the message of Meg Jay’s book The Defining Decade: Why Your Twenties Matter – And How to Make the Most of Them Now. Jay picks apart the assumption, which young people have all heard at various times, that your twenties are a time to exclusively let your hair down and have fun.
Making the most of your twenties requires trial and error, building focus, and forming serious relationships.
