Twenty years. Two freaking decades. Seems like a long time, doesn't it?
Where were you 20 years ago? I was in college, Bemidji State University, and was probably at work on my very first novel--a deer hunting horror story that was a pure homage to Stephen King.
How about you?
Over the past week or so, I've been listening to podcasts where people are marking 20 years (or more) for something. Dave Ramsey has been on the radio, teaching financial independence and debt freedom for a little over two decades. Andy Andrews recently published a book he started as an audio book 20 years ago.
Then it got me thinking: what have I done in the past 20 years? I met my wife, got married, raised a family, and have battled both type 1 diabetes (in two of our three children) and leukemia (my wife). Now I look at what the next 20 will bring.
Are you planning for your next 20 years?
What will you accomplish? Don't wait to start. Do it now. The world needs you.
