The Defining Decade

May 30, 2012

“The future isn’t written in the stars. There are no guarantees. So claim your adulthood. Be intentional. Get to work. Pick your family. Do the math. Make your own certainty. Dont be defined by what you didn’t know or didn’t do. — You are deciding your life right now.” ~Meg Jay, author of The Defining Decade: Why Your Twenties Matter – And How to Make the Most of It

The collected wisdom of a clinician and her clients is, in some ways, “common” and, in others, very much obscured in the contexts within which 20-somethings most often find themselves. I remember speaking with my mother once, worried about a friend, and I said, “It’s like she’s come to a fork in the road and, having decided that she doesn’t know which way to go, she has been encouraged to just sit there until knowledge somehow comes to her in order to provide a nudge in the right direction.” Jay does a great job of articulating the ways in which the wait-and-see approach just doesn’t work while showing methods for moving forward that really can work.
