Do It Before You Turn 30

Travel some where you don’t know the language
Going some where you can’t easily communicate with other people is terrifying. But not only would it enlighten you and make you savvy to another culture, it would also force you to really learn the language — something we’re rarely forced to do.

Date someone who isn’t your “type.”

You will learn and grow from being around people who are different from you. Maybe the relationship won’t work out in the end or maybe you’ll meet your future spouse. At any rate, you’ll either have a great time or a terrible time, but you will learn from the experience.

Forgive yourself for mistakes
Realizing you made a huge mistake by passing over an amazing job offer might seem like the end of the world, but it’s not. Forgive yourself and move on. This goes along with letting go of grudges–don’t hold them against yourself.

Get in a heated political debate

You might have no idea what you are actually talking about, but by arguing with someone who does, you’ll come out with new, more well-rounded knowledge and, hopefully, will get to know your own opinions better.

Get Inked

Permanence is scary, so make sure it’s something that really represents who you are at this point in your life, particularly if you’re prone to regret. Make up your mind, do your research and go for it.

Treat yourself to something really expensive

…and pay for it in cash. Whether its a new computer, a Chanel handbag or a weekend away at an upscale resort and spa, you totally deserve it for working hard.

Be the first person to apologize

It’s hard to admit when you are wrong. But it’s usually for the greater good. People will respect you more if you can admit fault and they will be less likely to hold it against you.

Learn how to cook

I’m not saying you should aspire to be Sanjeev Kapoor; just learn how to make a few fancy dishes for one of those special occasions. They might come in handy sooner than you think.

Start Saving

It may seem too early to think about your retirement. However, the sooner you start saving, the more money you’ll have when it’s time to enjoy your golden years. The money you save in your 20's will equal millions by the time of your retirement.

I would start by setting up a retirement account and contributing monthly to it. Even if it's 500Rs a month, it's something and will help in long term.

Start Reading Reading Reading

Reading has several benefits like boosting your imagination, improving your communication skills, keeping your brain sharp and help you learn new things and experiences. Make reading a habit now and stick with it throughout your life. 

Quite Smoking

We all make foolish mistakes when we’re younger. And, for many of us, that mistake is smoking. It might have been cool in college, but it’s not a habit that is good for your health or those around you. And it’s pretty pricey, too.

Keep Failing

Yes, you read that correctly. Fail. And fail a lot. There’s no better way to learn, grow and drive yourself to succeed in the future than to fail. Fail fast and learn to pick yourself up fast as well.

I've failed countless times but it's made me a much better person. Much easier to fail before 30 than after.

Get out of debt

Debt is bad. There’s really no other way to say it. Make sure you can pay off as much debt as you can so that you’ll be able to save for the future. This will help you be able to afford things like a home or car. Better yet, stay out of debt in the first place. Debt is a downer and a stressor you don't need as a weight choking you and holding you back from great opportunities. 

Learn to get organized

While some people take this to a completely different level and get obsessed about it, I'm just asking you to free yourself from the mess that you are, and start organizing a bit. Putting an effort and working on your organizational skills in your 20s will pay off later in life since it'll reduce your stress levels and save you a whole lot of time and money.

Learn the value of physical intimacy

The days of casual sex are over and now, it's time for you to value physical intimacy. Understand the dynamics you share with your partner and respect his/ her emotions that are attached to this entire act of lovemaking. Sex is no longer a matter of simple desire, but much more than that. Hence, it's time to value the purity and intensity of physical intimacy.
