The 7 worst mistakes you can make in your 30s

Published by Business Insider on Tue, 08 Dec 2015

Your 30s are typically a time for settling down after using your 20s to take risks and find yourself.Many 30-somethings are busy rising through their work hierarchy, developing a serious romantic relationship, and possibly raising a family.Those who have already been through that decade say that as their responsibilities accumulated, it became easier to neglect relationships and ignore opportunities that they would never get again.Quora users discussed lessons they learned in the thread: "What is the biggest mistake you made in your 30s and what did you learn from it'"We've collected some of the most insightful responses.SEE ALSO:33 Things Everyone Should Stop Doing In Their 30sDON'T MISS:13 things mentally strong people don't doYou aren't driven by purpose.It's common for undergraduate college students lacking specific career goals to pick a relatively safe, well-tread path with the hope that things work out. At some point in their 30s, some of these same people may have multiple degrees and wealth but realize that they are deriving no meaning from their career.This happened to designer Jack Sheu when he was 35. "I learned that if you don't have your purpose, then make it your obsession in life to find it," he writes. "It took me over a year, and I was completely disconnected from the rat race during that time. Don't stop until you've got it. You'll know when you have."You don't set up a financial foundation for the future.If you developed a spending habit in your 20s at the expense of saving for your future, it's not too late.An anonymous poster wrote that when his salary increased dramatically, he started spending excessively on things like expensive cars, a motorcycle, and a boat. Only in retrospect did he realize the danger of burning through money."Had I invested the money instead, I could have comfortably retired now (I am 44)," he writes.You neglect your personal relationships.You'll likely spend your 30s in a senior position that requires significantly more time and energy than your job did in your 20s. For the sake of your well-being, you should be vigilant about scheduling time specifically for your family and friends. The fulfillment you can gain from keeping loved ones close will keep you happier and more productive."Don't just work," writes Microsoft product designer Michael Dorian Bach, who is now in his late 30s. "Make memories. The older you get, the harder it is to make meaningful relationships. Foster those while you're young."See the rest of the story at Business Insider
