typicaldenverkidSleep, seriously every time my life is going well it’s because I’m sleeping well. Acts like a baseline for good performance
DummyBearsWhere do most of you stand with the work young philosophy in life so retirement is an option. I'v been mulling it over in my head for a while and it seems like you can get by and have tons of fun for a bit but will probably work into your 70s later. on the other hand you would have to work full time while your 22-25. Is it really worth not skiing/doing things you enjoy as much to be comfortable when you old. Iv debated investing the maximum amount I can after college for two years which will mature over the next 40. How did you guys approach this what would you change or was it right for you.

JAHBRADORIt all depends what you really want. If you want to ski at your peak and be able to do everything you have ever wanted to do, ski as much as you can in your 20’s. if you would get more enjoyment out of working and earning enough to secure a comfortable future in your 20’s, go for it.
Most people that ‘only want to do a few years of work to get some savings’, they blink and suddenly they are 40 with responsibilities, a family and a mortgage and can’t believe where the time has gone.
One of my Dad’s friends retired after working his ass off for 40 years to secure his retirement only to have severe health problems soon after that meant he couldn’t do anything but lay inside until his unfortunate demise. On the other hand he also has a friend that worked super hard from 20-35, sold his business for a couple millis and now skis 100 days a year and pretty much does whatever he wants.
TL;DR there is no ‘right’ way to do it, just go with your gut feeling and what feels right at the time. If you trust yourself, shit usually works out. Luck also is a small part.
pinkcamo1000big facts, and I hate that our culture praises people who don't sleep very much. We always hear about people working so hard that they only sleep 4 hours a night and so many people are like "wow, so amazing, what a great work ethic!" It's fucked up, if you're sleeping and eating well everything else will follow
