When we're younger, we're willing to trade time for money.
Taking jobs that will increase our "status" or our career capital for our next job.
When we're older we would trade anything for 5 minutes of extra life.
I think we should start thinking like this sooner. Forget giving up your best years for a job you don't like doing work that doesn't make your grow.
Think of ways that you can make 100% use of you time.
Because even though you may be "young", you never know when your time will end.
