Regret and Envy – TWTCL 022

Episode 022 Regret and Envy

We’re back to basics this week talking about life matters, including regrets you have in your 20s and 30s, how social media can make you envy those you’re connected to online, and why you shouldn’t end your job search when you find a new job. We also answer a great question posed by a twentysomething to those in their thirties: do you actually know what you’re doing or do you make it up as you go?

Regrets in Your 20s and 30s

Two articles, 7 Things You Will Regret in Your 20s and 11 Things You Will Regret in Your 30s, spark a conversation about regrets in life. Granted we can barely remember what happened in our twenties, we discuss the items on the lists that we resonate with. The good thing about being aware of the regrets people have in their twenties and thirties is that you can completely avoid them.

People often say your job search shouldn’t end when you find a new job. We discuss an article that offers this advice and other great career tips: The Company You Work For Is Not Your Friend.
