14 Important Things Everyone Needs To Learn By The Age Of 30
It’s true that we actually find ourselves when we reach our 30s, we have all by this time finished our basic educational pursuits and are already have embarked upon our life goals be it marriage or career. Most of us have a more or less a clear idea about what we plan to with our lives ahead. Here are a few things which would help you guide you through life’s uncertainties after we cross our 30th birthday and strive to achieve our dreams independently.
1Find a job that you enjoy
Trust me by this time we have all the necessary degrees that we need in the big bad world of job hunting which are necessary for employment and many of us have already experimented in a few jobs to check where they actually fit in. it usually starts has part-time jobs but slowly the curve leads to attain a more fulfilling and satisfying jobs which matches our qualifications and provided us with financial and mental stability.
2Learn to cook your signature dish
Yes, you might be married or happily single right now but in either case learn to cook as it’s the biggest sign that you have matured and are not dependent on anyone for your wellbeing. Having said that, we do learn a lot of stuffs from our moms and grannies but when living alone out there, try at least to master one dish which would be your “signature” dish with your special twists in it making it uniquely you. This will give you sense of achievement and pride.
3Understand who your true friends are
Yes, we have all now moved out of our “definition” of friends we had in school or in college which was basically a herd! Yes, in our younger days we prized our popularity and having more friends was the best strategy but now that we have hit our 30s the opposite theory of “friend-making” actually applies now. Because we look for quality not quantity. We want a few friends who will stick and understand our daily grind and struggles and keep us happy and motivated as they are also in the same boat, so no crowd of friends just a few to spend quality time with that’s all we must look for.
4Stop telling everyone the details of your personal life
Another reminder that you are not in college anymore where you could whine about your problems with your gal pals over a bottle of beer. No, this not done now that you have a serious partner in your life or legitimate work problems. Instead of involving your family or colleagues in it which might make the matter worse, take professional help like psychotherapists or councillors who will listen to your problems in an unbiased manner and will advise and suggest productive changes in your lifestyle and approach towards your problems. That’s the grown-up way to deal with our worries instead of becoming a slobbering victim.
At this juncture we have to multitask a lot of things whether we prefer it or not, be it our job, career refinement, some push for additional educational degrees or plan for a family, some even have a family by now. In the midst of so much responsibility juggling, we miss out on the essentials like time out with family, kids, spouse, partners or parents. Worst still we forget about our own wellbeing as well. So, we must be mindful of that and keep a separate day or hours in the days for self-pampering and love for our family members too.
