Was talking over a beer with a friend couple of days back and we were just laughing over the past fun times and all the crazy shit we did over the period of time.
But guess what after 5 mins the conversation changed to the regular business, economic scenario’s, Stocks etc etc.
I noticed my past 1 year that most of the conversations had been like this,New Ideas, Work, Side work/ Passion work, Hustle, Health & ya A fine Scotch etc.
This got me thinking from where we started to where we reached in terms of conversations, meaning of fun and overall outlook of life. Then it clicked, its ADULTING.
So as per Oxford Dictionary “the practice of behaving in a way characteristic of a responsible adult, especially the accomplishment of mundane but necessary tasks.”
In short from being someone else’s responsibility to being responsible for someone or something.
With Adulting oneself is incharge of 99% of life’s decisions and when in business the effects of others actions lands on you and you are incharge to lead them through the betterment which is eventually self betterment as well. In short “THE BUCK STOPS WITH YOU”.
One is allowed to screwup in adulting but you are incharge of own actions, someone else wont be coming to clean up ur mess, wether it is Business balance sheet, or Life Balance Sheet. We only are responsible for everything.
Sometimes I miss being a 25 YO kid who was just figuring things out and dabbling the idea of adulting and frankly it is 10 years and suddenly Adulting has hit me and damn I must say it has hit me hard. Still all the preparation of Adulting has not lead to any substantial results. It is an Extempore Exam which just never ends.
But in terms of learning, this whole Adulting has been a great teacher and everyday something new falls on your as a Problem which you solve and learn something and move ahead in life.
To all my readers who are below 23 please enjoy as much u can & the people who are sailing on a same boat of Adulting as me “KEEP FIGHTING” and Excel at Adulting..
Please do let me know it is a Boon or a Curse in comments, In my honest opinion it is a glass half full kind of situation. Boon for me though…!!!
