To the older people on this board.
Is it worth spending your 20's:

1. Enjoying youth
2. Working your ass off
>>
>>1737085
I did/do both, I don't consider them mutually exclusive. I think doing nothing but partying will mean you end up one of those rainbow hippie street kids you see downtown, doing nothing but working makes you an Asian and I patently reject both of these outcomes.
>>
Work your ass off until you're 25/26, enjoy yourself from 27 - 32/33, have kids and work your ass off again to provide for them in the future
>>
>>1737085
work your ass off. Life will look a lot brighter in your mid thirties
>>
>>1737085
do both
>>
Do both.

It is the hours spent being stoned watching TV-series that are wasted. There is a time and place for everything.

Also, stay away from shit relationships. If you are NEET during your teens, anyone that throws their heart on you when you reach your 20s, you probably want to hang on to. Constantly dump and upgrade.
>>
>>1737085
I did 1. and had a wild carefree sexy existence and recommend you do the same.

however, i had a loooonger climb with a lot of poverty as a result

>>1737085
Work like fuck, get rich or die trying
>>
Everyone i know who did both where able to because they did good in highschool, got a scholarship, and didnt have to worry about maintaining a job while in college to pay for rent and food.

I mostly just work and school (since i was a shit student in HS) but im not full asian i occasionally go to parties. Will graduate with a degree in compsci in fall.
>>
>>1737085
If I could go back to my early 20s I would work harder AND play harder.

I would definitely have started saving regularly, even if just a small amount monthly.
>>
People say "work hard play hard" which is not my style, but there is something in not second guessing yourself, worrying about whether you're doing the right thing. I think most people have to go through their 20s before they are confident enough in their own skin. If you can accelerate that process then that would be a big advantage.
>>
>>1737085
Same situation bro. I'm currently studying an economics degree in a top Spanish university and I spend all day studying and at the gym. Also having a distance relationship and working 2 hours everyday. Organization is the key; I manage to fit in accurately all my activities and keep partying with friends as much as I can.
>>
i did neither and am still well off
>>
If I could start over from being 18 I would have done the exact same as I have now. I mean, besides the obvious like investing in Amazon or Wal-mart or Northrop Grumman or whatever I know now succeeded wildly since then. I'd have shorted the fuck out of Sears or whatever.

i can't enjoy life so i guess i will work my ass off.

I amam 34 now, when I was in my 20s I did both, but times where way different .
I did telemarketing then sales and advertising and then worked for invention technologies. Lots of money, drugs, sex. But honestly it gets old.
Things now, i guess it depends on your job really. In (like pre 2006s) being in sales everyone was on drugs or drunk and chain smoking . But like I said, stuff was different

I don't get why people seem to just blindly accept that you can only have one or the other. There is plenty of time for both, you just have to be real with yourself and set your priorities for your free time

I think these are wrong options to start with. Working your ass off implies jumping on a shit job while you could use your time living with your parents to hunt for a good, lucrative gig. That's what I did, I was frugal and responsible with money, learned a lot. Now, at 29 I'm nearly completely financially independent (completely if I was to live a frugal rest of my life).
>>
depends on how disadvantaged you are to begin with.

i was actaully pretty advantaged, and hence was able to do both

after having both, here are my thoughts on it:

1. you 100% need to balance it.
2. if you want to be rich, you have to be extremely selfless with your time. it could feel like you only have time to get your shit done, but never any time for yourself
3. Everyone has a certain "natural" ability. With your time, you disperse this ability.
>>
You don't have to make an ultimate decision and stick to it all the way through your twenties. You just need to be aware of the consequences of your actions and decisions before you make them. How will it affect work if I spend the night in a bar instead of working on my project? How will it affect my personal life if I spend the whole night working instead of doing y with friends/family? To me this is really just a matter of proper time management and setting priorities - you just have to remember that just because work is more important to you than your personal life this doesn't mean you should not allocate any time to cultivating friendships and enjoying yourself. Time is a limited resource, manage it wisely.
>>

Im 40 yes 40, ill give you my advice

Why not moderation?

I spent ages 15 to 25 drunk and raving and I can definitely say that end of the spectrum was a waste - I certaintly wont be fondly remembering some kegger on my deathbed

But the other end is stupid too because even if you "make it" and become financially independant in your mid 30's using that strategy youd be an emotionally stunted person the rest of your life
>>
>>1738693
getting rich is at least a decent goal that autists like us can reach, we can't enjoy life, so if we've made it and can't take it anymore we can still always end it
>>
>>1737085
I'd say both. I'm 31 and in my 20's I

>worked hard
>played hard
>made a lifetimes worth of memories
>was crippled for life
>made and lost more money then I will for the next 30 years

Have very few regrets.

Don't take your friends for granted OP.

I lost several friends in my 20s, drifted apart from others with the wife and kids shit.

And my best friend killed himself almost a year ago.


Plan smart and work hard and have fun. Just ride the line and don't stress about future shit that may never happen.

>>
>>1737085
1 and 2 work together.

Networking is vastly more important than your grades in school. You should still try to do above average, but when you graduate you're going to be given another degree that means all of dick or shit. It's just a slip of paper that lets an HR department know you're a good goy that can handle a few years of bullshit.

Real success comes from knowing people. You get to know people in college by partying, getting into the best frats, etc. It's a very small and exclusive club being successful, and to get in you need to know someone.

Snorting coke off the dick of a thai tranny with the future CEO of a Fortune 100 is worth more than any degree.

>>
>>1737085
I'm 32. I'd say do both while saving aggressively and making smart investments. After college, I got a decent job and lived well below my means. I saved as much as possible while still enjoying life. Now I have a kid and a lot less free time. I'm really glad I bought a house in my mid-20s (not saying you need to buy a house - it doesn't make sense for everyone) and started saving for retirement early.
>>
>>1737085
Both but work for yourself, not others. If you have a job, and you aren't learning anything, quit. It won't get you rich.
>>
>>1739114
Also,

40-60 hrs working
10 hrs reading/lifting
5 hrs shitposting
5 hrs partying (1-2 social events a week)
>>
>>1738941

Ah, the classic "degrees mean nothing it's all about who you know" bullshit. This always, without fail, comes from the mouth of someone who got an increasingly worthless degree. Let me guess, you were in some business or finance related field? Or worse yet, a really low tier shit like psych or sociology? Even for business, finance, accounting, etc you don't even remotely need to network if you actually put effort in and your grades and resume experiences were good. STEM stuff you most definitely don't have to know people at all.

True successful people don't leech off the networks of others. They go out, work hard, and then others build a network around them after being drawn to their leadership and success.
>>
>>1737085
work your ass off, invest 20% of your income . dividend paying stocks and real estate.
>>
>>1737085

It depends.

Thing is, money can be earned at any time, and at any possible rate, but time and youth can never be recovered.

So I'd say only waste your teens/twenties working if you happen to be in something that is ungodly lucrative and you will be a multi-millionaire by 30.

Otherwise, enjoy 18 - 25, it's one of the funnest freeist times of your life and you will never get it back.
>>
>>1737103
This is where I ended up. A pretty good plan. Paid off the mortgage at 33
>>
>>1737085
do BOTH, but you have to have a friend or friends to do it with and you guys will do good.

there is no more competition in todays youth, there needs to be more healthy competition.
>>
>women working
This is the dumbest meme. If you want cash then marry a millionaire, use your youth to charm some millionaire and get children. Women have the best low cost high return opportunity than any other group and they waste it on lower tier pursuits.

Most 18 year old girls can be a millionaire in a year by just fawning over some rich guy who wasted his youth working.
>>
>>1737103
Agree with the first part. Going out is much more fun in your late 20s than early 20s. But having kids is stupid unless your spouse makes as much as you. Its a pity beta accountants making $70k a year knock up easy whores that make minimum wage at a movie theater then pay child support.
>>
Both are important just don't waste your youth having too much fun and no enough work and the other way around as well.

I fucked up in my 20s

Focus on connections and having good friends and it will change you. Also don't hang out with losers even if you feel like one''

Worst thing about my 20s is I focused to much on work, and for the first 20-25 i focused on a shit career that didn't get me anywhere. tfw. didn't have smart/rich parents

Now 28, rich, have a career, but no family nearby, no friends, and live alone counting my money

Management is typically business school speak for HR jobs. They're not going to call it a Human Resources degree because then only chicks would sign up. I'm guessing they're trying to trick unaware dudes into signing up and then hoping they like it.

Actual managers get their MBA, where they study Business Strategy

I'm currently completing my third degree, but it is on the path that I wanted.

Here's my path till now:

Bachelor of Science: Physics - 4 years.
Bachelor of Science (honours): Mathematics - 1 year

Gap year to find what I wanted to do and get a job in that area - I found what I wanted to do and failed at getting a job which lead to:

Travelling overseas to teach english for a year.

However realised that I would be happy teaching,

So I am now currently doing:

Masters of Teaching: Science and mathematics. - 1.5 years.

This has been from 2010 till now. It is a little sad to know how long it took, however teaching is something that I can see myself doing until I am ready to retire.

Who else here didn't do either of these? I just sort of did nothing. I'm about to graduate in May and still don't know what I want or am qualified to do as a career. I am currently working on changing the garbage mindset that I've had for the past several years.

You don't. You can test it a bit with internship.
But mostly people just chose something they think they could be interested in. Like "woo planes are cool, I want to build planes!" Or seems not hard to do, like controlling the work of someone else instead of actually doing something. Or something that just earn good money.
Then they hate their lifes for 40 years, because they don't have the gut to change.

The guys who lived it up through their 20s will tell you to work hard because they regret not having a better job and finances now.

You're going to have a shit life after your 20's if you don't have anything to show for yourself by 30.

I mostly agree with this.
Their is still room for balance of course.

I did mostly live my balls off in my early 20s, shit got dark around 25, then I got my shit together and now (about to turn 32) things are looking fine.

A bunch of my friends who refused to grow up and kept acting like a child through their late 20s are now hitting the wall and it's really depressing.

I know many here will disagree, but I do think it's ok to sew your wild oats early in life, so long as you use it as a learning experiance. Sure it could impede your development, but it's also pretty much your only chance to have those experiences and those experiences can be valuable later.

My wild early lifestyle left me with a disciplined attitude towards finance, depth, earing, and workplace politics that I find many of my contemporaries lack.

I'm 27 @nd graduated with a degree in English with little idea of what I wanted to do afterwards. I kind of floundered around a bit with low skilled jobs, ended up moving back in with my dad for a year. Finally got my foot in the door in my industry and was able to move back out again to the city and I'm still here. Got fired from one job, but found another one that's a lot better. Still not too highly paid, but I enjoy the work I do.

I see it as I paid Wells Fargo over $4,000 in interest last year and I'd rather not do that this year.

My measly
401 didn't yield that last year and if I had a crystal ball, they won't yield that this year either.

Pretty much my mindset. In my early 20's I was a paramedic and worked 24/48. The office life leaves litter to be desired.

it sadly applies to many teachers but i disagree - being good at teaching isn't simple and it takes a lot of work and finesse

Lol I pretty much am one of those beta accountants but I didn't know it was such a meme. One thing I regret about my wife is she's very dumb, I can't have a conversation about anything with her, I just hope our sons not a retard

Teaching is definitely a skill, especially at levels higher than middle school. There's a reason we still all remember the best teachers / professors we had. A lot of it is personality, but still a marketable skill.

Are you me? This guy totally, although I wish I smartened up a little younger. I'm definitely a financial late bloomer(33 and only about 5 years). Wish I knew 12 years ago what I know now. They don't teach you this shit in high school.

What kind of asian because as a hmong person I got shitface bowling/karaoke, fishing, drag racing, hunting, etc... pretty much every weekend while still working and going to school full time.
Though we really didn't do the whole house party thing too often unless it was for J4/New years.

I bought my house before even leaving college.

why are so many idiots obsessed with "making the most" out of their 20s?

here's a tip, you will likely live another 40 or 50 years after your 20s. making retarded career or financial decisions, or generally just fucking around and failing to develop skills, during this period of time will fuck you over for the remainder of your life.

not to even mention you can still "enjoy your youth" while working like a normal person and holding a decent job. it's not like you people are working 80+ hours per week and don't have time to do anything enjoyable. most jobs are easy as hell.

>making retarded career or financial decisions, or generally just fucking around and failing to develop skills, during this period of time will fuck you over for the remainder of your life.
it actually doesn't matter much what you do between 16 and 20, work-wise.

most people change careers at least once after that, and most people make most of their money in their 40's and beyond anyways.

Millionaires have on average more than three bankruptcies done by the time they get rich, so in reality making wise financial decisions and such is probably really bad advice unless a person happens to be particularly mediocre.

Easy.

1. Work smarter, not harder. When you see an opportunity, jump on it. School is for average furlture middle class wagecucks. If you geta great job offer, get it for at least the experience.

2. Partying gets boring. Bang a bunch of girls and do some drugs to get that out of the way, then focus on partying just for celebration of success.

working your ass off

I am over 50 and did nothing in my 20's and half of my 30's

I reasoned that i was living my retirement while i could enjoy it fully..

Now i am poor and may very well be destitue when I can no longer work

I recently heard a story about a 105 year old woman who was at a nursing home and ran out of money

Someone set up a go fund me page which helped her afford to stay but can you imagine being that old and being evicted from your nursing home?

You never expected to live so long and you didn't save enough.

make enough money while you can so when you can no longer you will have what it takes to aavoid destitution

Nobody ever impressed this concept on me when it mattered.

I was allowed to flout convention and do my thing and I am in grave trouble now

Literally hitting the lottery is probably my only hope.
>>
>have kids and work your ass off again to provide for them in the future

this sounds awful. Wouldn't you want to try to retire and have some kind of passive income before having kids? I fucking hate work but maybe you guys are different. Maybe I'm just not meant for this world.

>>1737085
Spent my early 20s pissing around.

During my mid 20s I lived in and traveled around cheap countries while building my online business.

Now in my late 20s I'm full work-mode hopefully continuing into my 30s and beyond.
