Ever wonder what it's like to be 80 years old?
Oliver Sacks, a neurology professor at NYU, shared the truth about life as an octogenarian in a piece for The New York Times called "The Joy of Old Age. (No Kidding)." In the column, Sacks writes:
"I do not think of old age as an ever grimmer time that one must somehow endure and make the best of, but as a time of leisure and freedom, freed from the factitious urgencies of earlier days, free to explore whatever I wish, and to bind the thoughts and feelings of a lifetime together."
Isn't that beautiful?
An 80th birthday is cause for celebration, but along the way other milestones matter too. For instance, the big 3-0.
By the time we say goodbye to our twenties, what should we have experienced in our careers?
Days, nights, weekends, weekend nights, holidays, holiday nights...you get the idea.
If your twenties were the decade to get knocked around, then may you spend the next 10 years cashing in on the education.
