Present-day you meets 10-years-ago you for coffee. Share with your younger self the most challenging thing, the most rewarding thing, and the most fun thing they have to look forward to.
Aha, let’s meet for coffee in a nice quite place where we can sit for a few hours and drinks cups after cups of mocha lattes. You and I love them, don’t we? Ok, sip sip ah! That’s good. Now, I bet you are surprised to see me aren’t you?
What advice I would tell 30 year old me? Be careful, your naivety and friendliness is not always reciprocated by everyone you meet and interact with. You have to realize that you are in the shitty side of doing work – a corporate enviornment. You will make a lot of friends and some people will really like you. Others are just waiting to drag you down at the drop of a hat. Watch out! Be prepared with adequate and accurate data.
The most rewarding thing – I dunno, the current pay off I guess. Though I feel the older I get and the more money I make, I feel that it is still less. I need more. So hold off on the most rewarding thing. I don’t see that much as having been very rewarding at all. I think I need more and I deserve more. And the most fun thing – is spending time with the people I care about. Going for movies (again after a gap of 11 years) and buying dinners for my folks. That is the best thing ever.
What to look forward to? Seriously nothing much. Hey, you start your own Star Trek ships collection. That is really something you will love.
