Someone recently asked: If you were to give an 18-year-old one specific piece of wisdom, what would it be? My answer would be that it would be wise to value entertainment much, much less.
There is room for entertainment but it should not be all consuming. In fact, it would be best to work on yourself at this point in your life. Put time and money into experiences and education. Become something. Don't just sit there watching and observing someone else's life and adventures. Get out there, get in the game, and create your own story.
My wish is that every 18-year-old would value entertainment less and his or her own life more.
