What pieces of information would you use as stepping stones? What do you wish you have known at age 18 that would have contributed to more success? Where would you have invested more of your time and knowledge into?
I have always been lucky when it came to my education and my career. I traveled the world and enjoyed what I did. However, honestly speaking, I never pushed myself outside of my comfort zone. I was afraid of failing. So if I could go back, the one thing I would change is to give myself the room to take risk, push myself into areas that perhaps were not a natural fit for me but that nonetheless interested me. In fact, it was not until I was 35 that I finally allowed myself to strike out on my own and accept that failure (big and small) might be a part of that learning process, but that I was okay with it because I was also learning so much and finally doing what I truly loved. Anyway, whatever you decide, just know that as long as you focus on what you love things will always work out for the best.
