Six Things Everyone Should Accomplish Before They Turn 18
- Hold a Job
Whether this is just a paper route, summers on a farm or a part time job at the local store. I think you need to learn how the world works, and the value of hard work.
- Support a Cause
So you can learn that there is something more important that you out there, but that you can make a difference. It doesn't really matter what the cause it, just that you have a chance to feel a passion for something.
- Stand up for Something
It doesn't matter what it is, but you need to stand up for something. Preferably something that gets you out of your comfort zone and teaches you to have a back-bone.
- Learn to think
One of my favorite quotes is "I think therefore I am dangerous". If you can think, it'll be more difficult for people to fool you. You'll also experience far more from the world around you if you approach it with an open mind.
- Have a Pet
Every kid needs a dog, cat, hamster or some other creature. It'll teach you to love, care for and ultimately learn about the whole circle of life.
- Enjoy Themselves to the Fullest
I think few people appreciate the care-free enjoyment that comes with youth, more than those who no longer have it. I wish I had enjoyed it more, and been less concerned with growing up as soon as I could.
So that's my list...
