I was 27 years old when I realized how much time I had wasted doing the same things over and over again. When I was younger, everyone told me to be patient and take my time figuring out what I wanted to do with my life. That sounded like a good idea at the time; however, it’s not so great when you’re looking back on your 20s and realizing that they have passed by in a blur! So what should 27-year-olds do? Here are some ideas:
Make a bucket list and put it on the wall
When you’re 27, it’s a good time to create a bucket list of things you want to do before you die.
Make sure that your bucket list is realistic and not too ambitious. For example: “Go skydiving” is probably not going to happen anytime soon if it means leaving the country or spending money on something like that–you need some time and resources before taking such an extreme step! But if there’s something more reasonable like “learn how to ride a bike,” then this could be an achievable goal in the near future (especially if someone else teaches us).
Learn something new every day
This is the time to take advantage of your youth and start learning new things. If you don’t know how to do something, learn it! There are so many free resources out there that make it easy for anyone with an internet connection to learn anything.
- Read a book (or two). Reading has been proven to be good for your brain, so pick up a book on any topic that interests you – whether it’s history or science fiction or cooking recipes – and get started!
Go on some adventures and try at least one thing that scares you
- Go on some adventures and try at least one thing that scares you
- Take a risk
- Be adventurous
- Try something new, exciting and different
Try new things, even if they seem weird or ridiculous to other people
If you’re 27 years old, it’s a good time to try new things. You should be open to new experiences and willing to take risks. Don’t be afraid to fail or look silly–not everyone will understand your choice in clothing or hair color, but that doesn’t mean that they’re right!
If you want something different out of life, don’t let other people’s opinions hold you back from doing what makes YOU happy.
Travel, travel, travel!
Traveling is a great way to learn about yourself and the world around you. It gives you a chance to see things from a new perspective, which can help you grow as a person.
Traveling also allows for exploration of different cultures and people, which can be an eye opening experience that helps you gain knowledge about other ways of life.
Find someone to be your partner in crime
- You’re going to need someone to share the journey with. You can’t do it alone, so find someone who is on the same page as you and will stick by your side during all of life’s ups and downs.
- The next step is finding this person! I’m sure there are plenty of people out there who would love to be your partner in crime, but how do we know which one is right? Well first off let me tell you that if they aren’t willing to commit their entire lives (and bank accounts) then they aren’t worth it! And secondly…
Keep learning through books, podcasts and more.
Reading is a great way to learn new things. Podcasts are also a great way to learn new things. There are many websites that offer free online courses, such as Coursera and Udemy. You can also download books for free using the Kindle app or other similar apps on your phone or tablet device!
Start planning for retirement while you are still young enough to enjoy it!
- Start saving for retirement early. The earlier you start saving, the more time your money has to grow.
- How much should I save? It depends on your age and how much money you make. The rule of thumb says that if you’re under 30 years old and making less than $30K per year, aim to save 10% of your income each month; if you’re between 30 and 40 years old with an annual salary between $30K-$60K, aim for 15%; if it’s over 40 with an income above $60K per year then 20% is recommended (but try not to exceed 25%).
- What should I invest in? There are many investment options available today – stocks, bonds/fixed deposits etc., but when it comes down to choosing one that suits both short-term goals as well as long-term ones like retirement planning then mutual funds are ideal because they give investors diversification across different sectors such as real estate & infrastructure etc., thereby reducing risk while giving them exposure towards growth opportunities within these sectors simultaneously!
Don’t let life pass you by. There is no need to be stuck in a rut or routine; instead, challenge yourself and explore new experiences every day.
- Don’t be afraid to try new things.
- Don’t be afraid to fail.
- Don’t be afraid to take risks.
- Don’t be afraid to be different, because that’s what makes you special! The world needs more people who are willing and able to think outside of the box, so don’t let fear hold you back from being yourself or doing something exciting and unexpected (like traveling somewhere new). It’s okay if this means making some mistakes along the way–the important thing is that we learn from them in order not make those same mistakes again later on down the road!
If you want to be successful at 27, then you need to make sure that you keep learning and growing as a person. There is no right or wrong way to do this–you just have to find what works best for you! But the most important thing is that you should never stop trying new things, because life is too short not to try something new every day.
