You’re not Behind Schedule

I don’t think I am alone in feeling somehow behind schedule.

Millennials and Gen-Zs have inherited a society that was created by people that had an easier ride economically, who are now profiting from an economy we cannot afford to access. We aren’t able or don’t want to follow in the footsteps of those that have come before us - so it is very easy to feel like we are running out of time, with no guidelines or easy roles to step into.

However, I don’t think this is fair to any of us. Earth is a tiny rock - a grain of sand on the beach that is the universe. None of the stuff we do is planned. Earth is a happy accident - there is no rhyme or reason for us to be here - but here we are. Suddenly life feels much more fluid and flexible.

You don’t have a schedule that you need to stick to. No one knows what they are doing - not even the ones who look like they have shit together. So why we beat ourselves up about it baffles me.

Things like the Forbes 30 under 30 don’t help. But did you know that it is something you APPLY for - it’s not real? It is just like any other application process. Yes, it’s a nice thing, but it isn’t something you need to set your alarm for. Time isn’t real - age doesn’t matter - we're all absolutely fine as we are!

So relax; you’re doing great - there is no schedule. You’re not behind in any way. Enjoy your time on earth!
