Leading up to my birthday I wrote a post on what I learned in my 20s. But I did something else. I sent an email out to my subscribers subscribe here and asked readers age 37 and older what advice they would give their year-old selves. The idea was that I would crowdsource the life experience from my older readership and create another article based on their collective wisdom.
The result was spectacular.
I received over responses, many of which were over a page in length. It took me a solid three days to read through them all and I was floored by the quality of insight people sent.

Because she started early and invested wisely, she is now in her 50s and financially stable for the first time in her life.
You just have to do it. We all know to eat better and sleep better and exercise more and blah, blah, blah. But just as with the retirement savings, the response from the older readers was loud and unanimous: Their points were pretty much all the same: This is the decade to slow down that breakage.
