The internet may be made up of millions of anonymous strangers, but those strangers can still share some pretty great life advice.
One of the most common questions to come up on Reddit’s AskReddit threads is young people asking how to live without regret.
Here are some of the shiniest pearls of wisdom from people over 40 to people still in their 30s.
"Big goals are just checkpoints and have far less punch in hindsight."
"Big goals are just checkpoints and have far less punch in hindsight. The day-to-day moments of sitting around with friends, cuddling on the couch, laughing together at a funny joke, those moments burn in memory and hold all of the real importance. Attaining or not attaining goals seems to have nothing to do with happiness. Looking back, some of my biggest failures that seemed so catastrophic at the time, feel meaningless. They are just part of my story. The people I’ve lost, I miss every day. It’s only about the people." — clickclickfizzle
"Multitasking is an oxymoron."
"I regret … living in a shallow blur, by doing too many things adequately vs. a few meaningful things really, really well.
"Multitasking is an oxymoron, and your inbox will always be full — that is its job. But being excellent in a few cherished things (playing piano, skiing, photography, whatever) gives a lasting reward." — mustlovecash
"Stay fit and healthy guys. It’s a long way back once you lose it!"
"I got married in my late 20s and really settled into a sedentary lifestyle right through my 30s. Stacked on too much weight and the lack of exercise and terrible diet now sees me having some fairly significant health issues before I even hit 45.
