Daily TEDTalk Inspiration: “Meg Jay: Why 30 Is Not the New 20”

TedTalk time! Clinical psychologist Meg Jay has a bold message for twentysomethings: She says that contrary to popular belief, your 20s are not a throwaway decade.

Meg hopes to motivate a generation of twenty-somethings who have repeatedly been told they have plenty of time to figure out their lives. On the contrary, Jay sites statistics about career growth, relationship development and reproductive capabilities that all emphasize the importance of our 20s as a formative period that sets the trajectory for the rest of our lives.

In this provocative talk, Meg says that just because marriage, work and kids are happening later in life, doesn’t mean you can’t start planning now. She gives 3 pieces of advice for how twentysomethings can re-claim adulthood in the defining decade of their lives.
