Question of the Day

Today's QotD comes from blogger d_jonsey (via Bits & Pieces) and has gathered many responses so far. I'd like to pose it to my readers as well, slighly rephrased:

If you could give one piece of advice to yourself at the age of 20, what would it be?

There are many good answers so far. Here's a sampling:
  • Hug your Mom. Someday she'll be very old, very loving, very concerned, 1200 miles away, and too frail to travel. And someday after that, she'll be gone
  • Marriage is not 50/50...It's 100/100.
  • Choose a job you love and you'll never work a day in your life.

This is would be mine:

"On May 15, 1997, a company traded on NASDAQ will go public. It's called Amazon.com. Save every penny from now until then and buy as much stock in that company as you can on that day. Sell it off into cash in the month of November 1999. Then buy the stock back in February, 2001."

16 would be a better age than 20, but 20 would still work: "Tell her what you feel NOW. There isn't going to be a perfect time, and nothing that will happen is worse than not knowing."

(the first time I tried to post Blogger went fluey, forgive me if this is a double post. dg)
