Earlier this week, I stumbled upon a post that caught my eye. It read, “So we’ve graduated. What now?” That stuck with me, what now. Here’s an excerpt from it:
“Though the circumstances for each of us are very different, it would be great to hear some of the things you seasoned fellows wish you knew right after college, or what you'd like to share as life-enriching advice to those who are overwhelmed with this next stage in life.”
This reminded me of a response I saw on the TLDR survey a while back (yes, I read all of them). Someone wrote that they’d like to know what I would tell 10-years ago me. Well, 10 years ago, I had recently graduated and wasn’t sure about what to do next.
I thought about and replied to the post first. Then I thought some more about what else I might tell myself 10 years ago, if I owned a Dolorean and a flux capacitor. Here’s what I settled on.
