10 Things Every 20 Somethings Should Know How to Do

Updated on July 26, 2017

Part 1 - Being responsible

  1. How to budget, save efficiently and be financially stable. Know your priorities and what to save for first, what's important and not too important. Learn how to live comfortably but within your means and here's one lesson I've learned; Spend less than what you earn, Save more than what you spend.
  2. Learn how to manage your time, be early for work and use the spare time efficiently
  3. How to run a house; pay bills/what bills you'd need in a house and skills such as How to cook, clean, use the washing machine, iron etc
  4. Have fun without going out and drinking all the time and without spending money
  5. Be able to say sorry, own up to things when they are your fault and try and fix arguments or miscommunication in a reasonable manner.

Part 2 - Your mindset

  1. Know your worth and don't settle for anything less than this. You are in control of your life. It's okay to be selfish sometimes to follow your goals and aspirations of who you want to be and the life you want to live. Set goals for yourself, make a plan and strive to achieve them. If someone tells you that you can't do it, use that as a reason to want to do it even more.
  2. Protect your self and remove toxic people from your life. Don't get involved in drama. It's better to stay out of it and keep your head down on the things that matter to you. DO NOT let people make you feel worthless.
  3. Say yes to new challenges, do something that scares you, Travel to one new place each year. Enjoy your life.
  4. Find patience in life; when you just seem to have bad luck, things aren't going your way or times get difficult, learn to just take a step back, do the things that make you happy but find reasonable ways to cope with stress and anxiety.
  5. Enjoy the present; learn to put your phone down, make regular time for friends and family and be mindful of your surroundings. Give them a call or a quick facebook message to catch up. Try and find one new thing in each day that you haven't noticed before in your partner, a friend or the environment. Life is being taken over by electronics and valuable time with close ones are being lost. Don;t regret the time you have.
