LIFE DEVELOPMENT TIPS from China's richest, Jack Ma and thought, I may not have had this guide all my life, but its not too late to align ones life with our dreams with a clear path through our stages of development. Besides, it's good advice from Jack Ma. It may be perfect timing for someone. Life's mistakes are actual opportunities. This is like my specialization in Risk Management, where it depends on the angle that you look at a risk, as its also an opportunity.
• BEFORE 20 YEARS OLD:
Be a good student. Learn a lot and explore your different skills.
• BEFORE 25 YEARS OLD:
Make enough of your mistakes by this age to learn from them. Don't allow your mistakes/challenges to hold you back. When you fall, get up, put your fierce face on and keep moving. Assess your choices to make intelligent decisions.
• BEFORE 30 YEARS OLD:
Identify mentors. Find persons to follow in different areas of your life who will help to make you a better person. Dream big and have a passion for what you do. Continue learning and at this stage go to a small to medium size company so that you can learn to do a lot of different things and build your skills. Afterward, go to a big company to specialize. Now it's not about which company you're at but which boss you have as the professional influence you have at this stage is important.
• BEFORE 40 YEARS OLD:
Methodologically continue building your expertise if you're working for yourself or a company. Align yourself to be an expert in your field.
• BEFORE 50 YEARS OLD:
Do all the things you are good at and don't try to deviate much in new areas. You may be successful but the rate of dying is greater. Don't focus too much on the things that you're not good at, but continue to improve of the areas of your life that would make you a better person.
• BEFORE 60 YEARS OLD:
Invest in the young people to prepare them to be better. Because young people can do better than you with guidance, in many areas, rely on them. Guide them and help to inspire their innovation and creativity to grow. Don't reject them.
• OVER 60 YEARS OLD:
Enjoy yourself. Go to the beach, go on trips and relax more. Have some fun and appreciate all you can with family and friends :) Importantly, in the midst of this, facilitate having family and spend time with your family. family and friends are important. When the smoke is all clear at the end of the day or ones life, its family and friends who you'll have. Love and enjoy who you are and what you have at a given point in time. However, don't settle, keep working towards your dreams like you are hungry for it. Forget about regret and live to make your life and the life of others better.
