We all save up money so that we can do things when we’re older. Maybe we’ll finally scuba dive in Hawaii or backpack around Europe.
The issue is that a lot of the things we’re saving for aren’t what we’ll be equipped to do, or want to do, when we’re older.
Instead, what if what we experienced was guided by this principle: do what you can only do at this age, at this time in your life.
For everything else, it’s worth saving resources and waiting for the future.
