I would advise to be wary of this kind of advice, either to one's younger self or someone else. I understand where you're coming from, but it's an advice that'll always be valid only in hindsight, which renders it inapplicable. Also, it makes you feel regretful.

For you 25 yr old+ guys out there, if you could go back in time, and tell your 25 year old self something, what would you say?
Find better friends and start a business that is tech related. Learn SEO and focus on creating something that can scale. Starting a business is a ton of work so focus on one that can potentially change your life.

Not 25 yet (20), but hopefully by 25 I will tell myself, "Good job, you've made it."
Hey man how are you doing 7 years later ! I'm actually in my 20s with the same mindset as you before, Have you achieved your goals ?

And if you do achieve your goals in your 20s, what are you going to do then? Life is a lot longer than just your first few years of your adult life...

As a veteran myself I would love to help out on this, do you know a few in your own circle who are struggling?

Jesper THANK YOU for your service. In my personal circle I have only one friend in bad shape, nightmares, ptsd, etc top off his spouse left and took kids with her and he is basically just trying to numb himself. But that doesn't touch the over 3600 estimated homeless in Houston area. I would love to learn how to help our veterans in our community and raise awareness. Our vets deserve not to struggle with necessities for living.

I wouldn't say anything to my 20-year-old self.

That kid just doesn't listen
You're right. I raised two families of kids. They didn't listen to anyone older until they were in their mid-twenties. It was when they got out and tried to build a life that they came back and wanted advice on how to do it. Until they tried it, they knew everything.

So put one foot in front of the other and do something -- even if it's wrong. And ask yourself my little question...
What can I do at this moment to further my goal of _______?
Take a baby step. DO SOMETHING!
Thanks for the advice. Really do appreciate.
