A P.S.A. For Millennials - Advice to my Younger Self

When I twenty-five I was living in NoVA with my best friend. I was five months into my pharmaceutical sales career and just starting my relationship with Lynn. I was more than busy trying to pay off my college debt that included a credit card rescue loan from my Dad.

I leaned on my hamster-wheel work ethic (i.e., hustle) to make up for my lack of consciousness and intentionality. Between sales calls, I would listen to Zig Ziglar cassette tapes as I worked my territory and tried to develop my craft.

I was playing the game that I thought society wanted me to play, but drip by drip I was pouring my stress inside my cup.

With this frame, it may seem like I would make a few adjustments if I had the opportunity to play Marty McFly.

Well, a few weeks ago during a podcast interview, I was asked to get into that DeLorean Time Machine and share the advice I would give to the 25-year-old version of me.

In this week's video, I share my response, and as a peloton member, the first tip probably won't surprise you. But the second one will - at least it surprised the host - and it's important whether you are 25, 35, or 45 because it deals with the hardest change most of us will have to face.

In the comments section, please share the advice you would give to the 25-year-old version of you and hit the subscribe button.

Until next week, have fun storming the castle!
