Weekend read: 25 rules for living from a 26-year-old

Hold up! Before you read on, please read this...

I keep old posts on the site because I often enjoy reading old content on other people's sites. Not everything that is old is bad. It can be interesting to see how views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured.

But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:

  • My views might very well have changed in the 5 years since I wrote this post. I have written some very silly things over the years, many of which I find pretty embarrassing today.
  • This post might use language in ways which I would now consider highly inappropriate or offensive.
  • Factual information might be outdated.
  • Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.

Okay. Consider yourself duly warned. Read on...

I’ve chosen this weekend read not because I agree with everything it says, nor because I consider it’s author particularly well qualified to write on the subject. But Ryan Holiday’s “25 rules for living from a (semi-)successful 26-year-old” from Thought Catalog is one of those trashy list-based “articles” that, to my mind at least, falls just on the right side of provoking a bit of fairly superficial self-analysis in the reader.

I offer it as a sort of antidote to the frequently long and heavy articles I suggest as weekend reads… we all need a rest from time to time!
