39 Things About Life I Wish I Had Known 10 Years Ago

About two years ago I started a list called “Things I wish I had known earlier” in my journal.

I initially came up with 25 lessons about life, career, love, and relationships. Things I’ve learned from mentors, books, friends, readers, etc.

I created the list for myself because I realized that I forgot important lessons at the same rate I learned new lessons.

And when I shared the list on my blog for the first time, a lot of people thought it was useful. Two years later, I still read the list a few times a year. Plus, I added new lessons I’ve learned recently.

Here’s the latest edition. I hope you find it useful.

  1. Struggle Is Good
    Never say “I can’t take it anymore.” Say “Bring it on!”

You might know a lot. But just like Socrates, who believed he knew nothing, you and I also know nothing at all.

So we have to keep learning.
