Things You Won’t See Until You’re 40

by | May 15, 2023 | Entrepreneurship

There will be things that seem far too tedious and obnoxious to do. That is until you realize they are categorically essential to your success.

All things being equal, it’s better to have spent your 20s and 30s experimenting and learning. You will want your ultimate success in your 20s and 30s, but you probably won’t get it until later.

But if you’ve prepared yourself well for your 40s, you will have uncovered, assimilated, and synthesized the knowledge and skills necessary to achieve your goals. You will have experience as a feedback mechanism – to discern what will work and what won’t.

Getting a running start in your 40s without having spent your 20s and 30s learning will be challenging, to say the least.

For better or for worse, there will probably be things you won’t see until you’re 40. Things like the importance of a sales tracker or content calendar.

You’ll have heard of all these things, no doubt. Maybe you’ll have even acted on some of the information you’ve gathered.

But don’t expect to grasp the importance of any of it in your 20s and 30s and to be able to implement it with any degree of competence. Again, it will occur as tedious, obnoxious, and even unnecessary earlier in life.

Patience isn’t easy, and neither is sticking with something long past the point where you’ve lost all faith.

But if you can accept that it may not happen for you until you’re 40, you can spend your 20s and 30s productively, discovering what’s required to be a success later in life.
