Hindsight is a wonderful thing… a phrase used too often? Perhaps. But why?

Many times people look back at their 20s wishing they had done changed something, made a different decision or altered their perspective in one way or another. Moving into your 20s is a big step and one that should be made with smart, informed decisions; after all, it’s YOUR future.

Market advice has many suggestions that you may or may not agree with, it depends on the individual as to what may or may not be relevant in terms of advice…

Give yourself a break

You don’t need everything planned and figured out just yet. Move to different locations, gain new experiences and have an open mind when doing so!

Happiness comes first.

Do what you want to do and not what anybody else expects of you, challenge yourself but most of all have FUN.

Stop living for others approval!

Don’t let the need for verification influence your job, character and/or life decisions.

Every experience is valuable whether it’s good or bad, you always learn something from it.

Learn to say no.

Your time is your most valuable asset, don’t waste it on things you don’t have to do.

Finally, step outside your comfort zone, you won’t regret it.

Life is too short to have regrets, learn from your experiences and don’t make the same mistakes twice! This is majorly applicable when entering the job market, you have to take risks, but you should do it for your own satisfaction rather than others approval (Yes, that’s right, you don’t have to fulfil your Mum and Dad's career desires they’ve been pushing upon you for the last 20 years – it’s YOUR life).

And as Oprah Winfrey famously said: “Relax, everything will be alright”.
