19 Pieces of advice for people in their 20s danielﬂopes.com
1 - Learn to code Software is eating the world. More and more major businesses and industries are being run on software and delivered as online services — movie, music, books, educational, health care, ﬁnancial, national defence, oil and even agricultural companies, are powered by software. Learning to code is a must for the next decades. And even if you'll not become a programer, you surely will work with one. You need to understand programming.
2 - Develop your communication skills We talk and write every-single-day. Talking and writing are our best tools to transmit our ideas to other people. We need this to show our coworkers why our idea matters, to develop an healthy relationship with our partner, and to educate our kids. Communicating well is more fundamental than the majority of the knowledge you get from college. So strive to become better at it, by practicing. Write a book, a blog, or a diary. Make public presentations and learn with the world's best communicators. This will pay a lot in the future.
3- Try to have a fun but frugal lifestyle Focus on spending money in what you really need, in your investments, and in experiences instead of objects. You'll be richer by simply doing this - you'll have more money to spend on what really matters, and you'll notice that you don't need so much of it as you thought before. Also, by doing it you'll develop good habits that people who are big money spenders don't have - the last tend to have problems later in life, when they lack the good sources of income they once had. “There are two ways to make a man richer: Give him more money or curb his desires.” Jean-Jacques Rousseau
