Why I only work a 4 day week

Dear 25 year old me,

You don’t work five days week anymore, in fact, you haven’t done so for several years. Before you either a) give me a high five for “making it” or b) shake your head in shame thinking that future you is a slacker, hear my story first and tell me if you’d do it another way. Keep reading this…

Putting a price tag on…you.

Dear 25 year old me,

Today we’re thinking about value. Putting a price on you and what you can offer is tough.

Social media – she’s alright.

Dear 25 year old me,

I know that you wanted to resist joining as much as possible because it seemed like *everyone* was doing it and you’re certainly not one to follow a fad. Turns out though, it’s going to be a platform that you end up gaining a lot from.

Don’t be cautious like me and instead hop onto them as soon as you discover them. Keep reading this…

Done is definitely better than perfect

Dear 25 year old me,

There are many lessons that you’re going to learn over these next epic years of your life, but one that you’re going to struggle understanding is that ‘done, is better than perfect’.

You see, I know that your perfectionist self is currently thinking, “Well that’s a cop out, why do anything at all if you’re not going to give it 100%?”. Keep reading this…
