Noted Irish playwright and philosopher George Bernard Shaw opined, “Youth is wasted on the young.”
What he possibly meant was that many young people have everything going for them physically; they’re in the best health they will ever be in, and their minds are sharp and clear.
However, they lack patience, understanding, and wisdom which results in so much wasted efforts.
The energy that can be directed towards building a solid thought process and action plan for the future is spent on short-lived pleasures.
Shaw’s words are especially applicable to those young adults who are starting a career and wondering if they should start saving and investing for their future or spend the next few years living life kingsize.
