Three Gifts for a 20-Something (148)

Every time I interview a 40-something woman for 40:20 Vision I ask them what three “gifts” would they give a 20-something if they were a “Forty-Godmother”. Here’s what one 40-something woman had to say.



Don’t live your life on a default setting. Everything is a choice.


Don’t guess. If you have doubts or are worried about something. Say something. Ask. Better to know than not know.


Don’t waste time taking things personally. Try to take away at least one thing from a conflict that you can do better …but don’t beat yourself up. That doesn’t mean you can’t be personal or empathetic. Acknowledge your part, address it and move on.
