Having just turned 30 this past year, I've been reflecting a lot on my 20s.
You might think that this book is for someone who feels lost in their 20s and is struggling a lot with life. I found this to not necessarily be the case with this book. I actually have amazingly come out of my 20s pretty happy with how those years turned out. Now, of course we all struggle in our 20s in some way or another, and that's okay. This book is for anyone dealing with these formative years of life.
Paul breaks this book down into four main categories: Adulting to Win, Careerish, Relationshipping, and Signature Sauce
These are just a few of the questions that really challenged me. #15 What is fear keeping me from doing? Is it worth it? #16. What would my life look like if I were okay just being me? #32 Am I being brave enough to be awkward? #42 Am I dreaming big and being faithful in the small? #51 Do I create or do I complain more?
I would recommend just reading through all 101 questions to start with like the author suggests, then going back and delving further into the content provided with each question and thinking through your own questions to each answer.
Seriously grab a copy! You won't regret it!
(I received a free copy of 101 Questions You Need to Ask in Your Twenties by the publisher in exchange for an honest review)
Being in my 40s and my children in their 20s, I began to ask the same questions of my life that they were. I was excited that this book was not only a quick read, but it was enjoyable. The author writes with such wit and wisdom, that it feels as though you are having a conversation over coffee with a trusted friend! I bought 5 more to give to the special 20 somethings—and a couple of late teens—in my life!
I purchased this to give to my son, but read through it first. Very insightful and on-point questions. Not preachy, but a lot of great advice and thought-provoking questions to help a person "travel" through their 20's (and beyond!). Would have loved for this to be around when I was in my twenties -- would have helped me make better life decisions. Am going to buy a second copy to give to my nephew.
This book is such a great resource for millennials. One of the things I love about it is how the questions challenge you to think about your own life in a way that standard "tips" or "advice" don't often do. Paul also weaves in his trademark humor throughout the book, which is nice. Just when you're starting to get all serious about pondering your life, he hits you with an image of a "horse dipping a chip in the salsa bar." It's as if he's sitting there with you saying "hey, you need to get to know yourself and take control of your life...but that doesn't mean you can't have fun doing it."
Haven't even finished reading the book yet and I want everyone to know that it's great. I even reached out to Paul on twitter to let him know that I was loving the book and he replied! It's things like this that make me love authors and motivators. Paul knows what it's like to be in our shoes as a "twenty-something" and as such his books speaks to us. Definitely recommend this book to any and all that are going through a rough time or don't know what to do next in these crucial years of our lives. Easy to read as well!
A lot of questions we need to ask ourselves In our twenties (And thirties) that I didn’t think of ! I thought I was the only one going through things in my 20s but I’m glad to know I’m not ! Remember to read “101 secrets For Your Twenties” first! Love it ! Recommended!
