Start a family

I was 26 when I started a family of my own. At 30, I have an energetic four year old daughter who consumes all my energy during playtime. No pressure for ladies in their 30’s who are still single, but for me having a family before turning 30 is one of the best decisions in my life. That means getting to enjoy more time with my daughter while I can still keep up with her energy.

Decide on your career goal

This point in time is the best time to define your career goals and settle for what you really want to do with your professional life. If you have enjoyed your 20’s so much that you have been jumping from one job to another without a second thought, then you should think thrice now.

Choose wisely your circle of friends

We all have our fair share of friends. Some are good, some are better and some are the best. Now, you are adult enough to know who your true friends are.

I’m not saying that you end your relationship with your not so good friends, but, try to surround yourself with the not-so-toxic kind of people. Distance yourself from negativity, as simple as that.

Quit bad habits

Bad habits are hard to break. Most of the times, we know what bad habits we have but we choose not to admit it. Acceptance is the key my dear friends. Bad habits can be as simple as being late at work, it may sound simple but attitude towards work defines your character. Let’s start building on that character right now.

So, that sums it up, have a great decade ahead!
