The Defining Decade – My Takeaways

My first reaction after I finished reading was,

Man, I wish I read this book when I was in my early 20s instead of now. 

Doctor Meg Jay couldn’t have done a better job describing who we are in our 20s than her book “The Defining Decade: Why Your Twenties Matter and How to Make the Most of it”. It’s like she’s in my head all these years. Thoughts like,

I should really live it up now, I’m never going to get the same freedom and fun. This is bad for me, but it’s not like I care about a few extra year when I’m 90.


The time you have today spent alone, could be time you wish you had spent with your spouse, kids, and grandkids in the future.

OMG. That’s it.

So aside from getting in my head, she makes a lot of really good points. You can hear quick highlights in her TED Talk video.

But if the video got you curious, I highly recommend you buy/rent her book. Her stories are heart-felt and relatable, which make the book a really fast and fun read. Don’t put this off, go read it today and start thinking differently!

Thanks for reading!
