What Should You Do When You’re 23 — A question I answered on Quora.

Most times there are times when you see people of your age doing exploits and you wish you’d do the same.

There are some things you'll need to know; everyone's time is different.

It is deep ignorance to compare your existence with someone else.

It's okay to want to scale fast but remember your time and season is different.

  • Rockefeller got into business at 20 and became successful at 25.
  • Mark Zuckerberg at 19 started Facebook and became successful at 30.

I used these people as examples to tell you that 19, 20, or 50 is just a number. You should be where you are meant to be, doing the things you're meant to do and growing.

Show how relevant you are to the world, not living a parasitic life but understand what value you're able add and the degree of challenges you're expected to face.

At 20, be more effective and efficient giving thanks for all things.

At 20, you’re worthy to be more diligent.

Do the best you can at 20, you'll still succeed.

— Until then, keep this little light of yours shining, who knows I might need your lamp someday.

I dab.
