So can explore the world and try different things, it’s the phase that will give you a little space for making mistakes. So best make use of this spectacular phase while you can and be selfish and live for yourself. Here are something that you ought to do in your twenties:
Do something that scares
Whether it is small things like taking the elevator or bigger things like trying deep sea diving, whatever scares you, do it! A lot! It’s a great way to challenge yourself and face your fear. Oh, and the feeling you’ll get once you’ve conquered a fear is inexplicable. So do it now, when you are stronger, more fit. Also as we age we settle ourself in our comfort zone, which is very hard to get out of. Trying scary things now will only ensure that your mind stays open to crazy ideas later in life.
Traveling alone can seem like a daunting, even weird idea but it’s a great way to self discovery. When you ditch your friends and embark into the unknown, you have only you to depend on and this can really help you grow. You learn to enjoy your own company, you find out things about yourself, you get to indulge in things that make you happy and since you have no company you make the effort to talk to strangers and might even make friends for life.
Work for someone you admire
Make it your absolute goal! Whoever it is you admire, try working for them. It does’t have to be directly under them and it can be for a short time but the advantage is that you get to observe someone and see how they work. This will help you find a direction in life as well as your own working style. It might even give you the next big idea of the century!
Learn to play a new instrument

Start a collection
