4. Decide What Doesn’t Matter to You
Many people go through their lives chasing things that don’t matter. They look at other people’s lives and want to base their success and happiness on them. Instead of trying to figure out what matters, take a different route and decide what doesn’t matter. As soon as you know that, you will be able to invest your time and money in the things that matter.
One of the right moves to make in your 20s is to focus on the important things to you. Chasing money and acquiring possessions is fruitless. You will never have enough and materials things can never bring the same joy your loved ones can. Instead of keeping up with the Joneses, decide what matters – and what doesn’t.
Push the rest aside and concentrate on what makes you happy and feeling fulfilled. No one is going to live your life for you. Only you can decide what is important to you and what is not. Figure out what you value and go for it. If it means spending more time with friends and family, do so. Whatever it is, make it your own.
