10 Things You Will Regret Doing in Your 20s

Being young and vibrant means a lot to the younger generation. You have the opportunity to do anything you want, and you wouldn’t want anyone to stop you. The freedom to do whatever you like means a lot during these years. But here are 10 things you will regret doing in your 20s.

1. Procrastinating

The best time to take action is now, not the day after. If you spend a lot of time procrastinating, you will never have a happy life in your 30s and above. Many people have missed special opportunities because they did not invest enough time in important aspects of life.

2. Passing Time With Friends

Friends are special people; you cannot do without them for sure. But only if they add value to your life, they are worth your time and effort. If you are just trying to fit in with few in the name of friendship you are most definitely going to regret such relations at some point in your life.

 

3. Overspending Unnecessarily

Everyone likes to splurge once in a while especially when you have so much around to spend on. There is nothing wrong with it. But the problem arises when it becomes a regular habit and you begin to spend beyond your means. There is nothing more regrettable than not being able to save money at all. If you spend money unnecessarily, you will start regretting soon. Make sure to keep some money aside as savings.

4. Making Enemies

Truth be told, making enemies has never done anybody any good. And yet it is something very common in the early 20s. Make friends instead. Find people who share the same interests as you do and be part of them for as long as you can.

5. Having an Empty Active Bank Account

Saving accounts exist for a reason. Try and make sure to put at least a small percentage of the amount in your savings account. The millennials do live in the the YOLO zone but in a few years you realize that no savings bring any regrets. The best time to start saving is now.

6. Investing in Wrong Relationships

If you channel all your energy to wrong relationships, you will have a difficult time in future. Start connecting with the right people. Otherwise, life won’t be easy for you.

7. Spending Time and Money on Wrong People

It is good to be people’s person but every once in a while it becomes important to introspect a bit and recognize the true motive of people you spend your time with. If people are with you for a specific purpose like money, then it is high time you start eliminating such people from your life.

8. Playing Excessive Computer Games

Technology is good till the time you control it. Once it starts controlling you, things can go out of hands. Computers do have become a very important part of our lives but if you can’t do anything productive out of it, it surely is a sheer loss then. Computer games can be a refreshing break but beyond that, if it has become an addiction, then like every other addiction this too will bring a lot of regrets.

9. Nurturing a Spendthrift Lifestyle

Who doesn’t like to spend? Well, no one. But the problem with young people is spending without planning. Do not be a person who only spends a better part of his life trying to nurture a spendthrift lifestyle, unless you do not want to attain financial freedom before 30.

10. Not Making the Most from the Internet

We all have been a witness to the revolution that the world wide web has brought to our lives and we can list a number of people who are highly successful because of this medium. However, what we tend to ignore is the fact that there are also a lot of distractions attached with the internet. It is very easy to get distracted with the internet and once you are distracted you end up wasting a lot of your time.
