There was a bit in this article that I was wondering about. There was a reference to doing a lot of things in your twenties or don't let your twenties go by or something to that affect. Since I am 25, did I miss the boat. It kind of sounds like if I am still in school at 25 then I won't do well. I am pretty sure this isn't what it means but I just wanted some second opinions, there are some stuff on there I have done, I am on my third college degree, but I still try everyday to read, and learn things etc.

You're doing fine.  I went back to school for a second set of degrees starting at 27, and didn't finish grad school until my mid-thirties.  I'm 60 now, and I did just fine.  Do what you care about, care about what you do.  That's my only rule.  The rest is bullshit.

It seems like you're reading a bit too much into the article.  If you're already on your third college degree at 25, I'd say you're doing great.  I'm working on a Master's and I'm 24.  A lot of this conversation about success is pretty relative.  It's about how YOU define success.

I figure if you are in school, then you are progressing in some form. That is what it means to not waste your 20s. If you're just partying all the way up to your 30s, what do you ahve to show for your first 30 years? Probably nothing but some time you were drunk and you licked a pole. Keep studying, keep trying new things, keep growing and you'll continue to be awesome!
