I will confess that I feel a tad inadequate when I read through one of these “youthful overachiever” lists. Here’s somebody who started a company at age 24! Only 24! Whatthehell was *I* doing at 24?

Oh wait, I was driving nuclear submarines, going eyeball to eyeball with the godless communist hordes that threatened to pollute our precious bodily fluids… okay, I guess that didn’t totally suck. Better now.

Anyway, I did different things in my 30s than my 20s, changed again in my 40s, started my 50s doing what I was going to do for the rest of my life only to zig again… Anyway, my point (I thought I had one) is that life is too short to max out at 20-something. Fogey types* can rock, too. Keep on rockin’, Ezinne.

*Anyone over 30, apparently.
