I just turned 55 - here are 10 life lessons I wish I'd learned a decade ago
- Life lessons come in many shapes and sizes, and often are learned the hard way.
- The older I get, the more willing I am to take risks. I wish I'd become willing to do that sooner.
- At age 55, here are 10 life lessons I wish I'd learned earlier in life.
Looking back on my 55 years, I wish the past me hadn't assumed the future me would be rich. I would have saved more.
Among the other lessons I've learned: A good haircut and a nice pair of shoes show that you take yourself seriously - and others should, too.
I try not to look back with regret, but here are some things I wish I'd known a decade ago.
Take time to pay attention to your health.
Wear sassy boots.
No more bad hair days.
Dream big and let yourself fail.
Take a vacation that has nothing to do with work or family.
You're probably not going to strike it rich.
Do something you're terrible at.
Do a favor you don't want to do.
Say yes more than you say no.
