As you are getting older, you are going to be exposed to two major opinions about time. The first one is a lethargic voice, that will keep you stuck, which sounds like this: “You are too old and therefore it is pointless to start anything new.” And the second one is stirring up this urgency by telling you that: “You need to get this done as soon as possible, because time is running out.”

Trick question: which one is better? Well, nobody can predict the future, so there is no right or wrong in this case. I think both of these mindsets are not helpful and will prevent you from making optimal choices for yourself. You donĀ“t know what is going to happen. What if you have plenty of time left, to do whatever you want? That would be a great third option.
