  Life is filled with regrets. Ask anyone around you what their regrets are and they usually have no difficulty coming up with many items on their “regret list。” And for some reason our twenties are ripe for a field of regrets.

生活充满了遗憾。问问你身边的人是否有遗憾的事情,他们总会轻而易举地列出一大堆“遗憾清单”。由于某些原因,20多岁是一个充满了遗憾的年纪。

    

  Perhaps it’s because as we get older we look back on that period of adulthood as the height of freedom and autonomy. As move into middle age, we look back and wish that we had made better choices and taken more opportunities. Here’s a list of things that we regret not doing in our 20s。

也许这是因为当我们逐渐长大,回首过往时发现这是一段高度自由和独立的时光。当我们步入中年,回顾往事,我们常常希望自己能作出更好的选择,把握住各种机会。这里有一些建议,可以让我们在20多岁时少一些遗憾。

 

1. Traveling more

I regret not travelling more, and so does nearly everyone that I have asked. Before kids, and mortgages and marriages, when our commitments and expenses were lower, the opportunities for travel were much greater, but for some reason many of us thought we’d always have time for travel later。

 We dreamed of visiting the pyramids of Egypt, surfing off the Hawaiian coast, dining at a Parisian café, drinking espresso in Rome, trekking through the rainforest, and so much more. Sadly, many of us never made these journeys and the opportunity passed us by

多旅行。

我后悔年轻时没有多出去旅行。并且,几乎所有我询问过的人都抱有这种想法。在有孩子、贷款和结婚之前,我们所肩负的义务和承受的代价很小,这是旅行的大好时机。但是由于某些原因,我们总是认为以后有更多的时间旅行。

 

2. Investing early

 How many times have we kicked ourselves for not starting our 401Ksin our twenties, for not putting our excess cash in long term investments, for not investing in our future early. No matter how much we try, we can never get back the head start that we missed. Playing catch up in our 40’s and 50’s is very difficult

早点学会理财

多少次我们想踢自己一脚,后悔没在20多岁时早点开始养老金保险计划,没有把多余的钱用于长期投资,没有尽早开始理财。无论我们有多努力,我们都无法挽回错失的机会。四五十岁时才奋起直追是很困难的。

 

3. Being more responsible with spending

In order to invest in our retirement or save for that down payment, we would have needed to make wiser financial spending choices. Things like buying or holding on to that perfectly reliable used car, instead of splurging on the new model…because we could, eating out less and saving for a house instead, buying fewer shoes and purses and clothes and paying off student loans sooner. So many saving opportunities lost, money spent on tangible things, instead of on the future。

更合理地支出

为了退休后的投资或者是交付房子的首期,我们需要更合理地理财。比如,购买一辆有安全保障的二手车,而不是购买新车型。我们还可以减少外出进餐,攒钱买房,少买鞋子和衣服,尽早还清助学贷款等。我们错过了这么多攒钱的机会,把钱花在了实实在在的物品上,而不是关注我们的未来。
