How to set yourself up for retirement by age 22

Here’s an idea: What if it were more standard for young adults to take a gap year after high school to work, gain real-world experience, and save a lot of money?

There are at least three reasons that this would be an extremely high-leverage decision:

The Practice Behind All Practices

 In meditation, it is common to think that if you get lost in thought, then you aren’t doing it right.

It is actually the reverse – noticing that you have been lost in thought is the practice.

Meditation is the act of becoming aware of distraction and then vividly aware of the next appearance in consciousness.

So all of those moments that seem like recognition of failure, are in fact, the practice.
