  1. The “you’re only 23, stop rushing it” article started out super millennial whiny. But, as I read it, I get what she is saying. I too compare myself to those around me – much to my detriment. It reminds me of a quote I like:

    “if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.”
    Boring Adam recently posted…Briefly Boring: Retore? Strained?My Profile

    • I agree with that statement wholeheartedly. However, I think it’s also important for individuals to set high expectations for themselves, as you never know what you can achieve until you try. I set my 50 marathon goal after only having run two (and those two I honestly believed were flukes; I kept running to prove they were not). To the points in the article, I think it’s more about not beating yourself if you haven’t achieved a goal that YOU didn’t really want anyway.
