1. Focusing on settling down. You do NOT have to settle down by 24. Spend your 20s exploring. I am 42 and still not “settled”.
  2. Waiting for your friends to validate you. They may have different perspectives. And different places to reach. Love them and respect them in their journey. And respect the differences of opinions.)
  3. Spending tons of money on shopping to buy things to look cool to people who do not care. Live like a pauper. No one cares what you own, in your 20s. Or even later.

You will “arrive” when you do not care so much about arriving.
