    With age (hopefully) comes
    wisdom... What advise from
    your youth you wish you had
    followed....

    I'll start ....read more books,
    ate less junk food, watch less
    TV. Show more confidence

    just remember...it's better late than
    never

    Don't put all Your eggs in one basket. Have something to fall back on.

    I'm a bass player, songwriter, producer. It's what I know. It's what I do. I erroneously assumed life was about what You know. Turned out it's all about who You know. So when the recording contract never came, it finally dawned on me that money would be a problem too.
    Makes me wish I'd developed some other hobbies that might've paid off (like...oh...surgery or something).

    What's done is done. You don't have to put the past behind you because it's already there.

    Don't take friends and loved ones for granted.
    Don't start smoking.

    I am twenty two years old and I have never really taken that much advice... Though the advice that I have taken has been great.

    Anyway, a few years back one of my guy friends [who was very attractive to me] wanted to have sex. My female friend told me to go for it, but I wasn't wanting to mess around with guys at the time, so I didn't.

    I wish I had taken her advice...

    When I was 14, I use to do the lawn of a fairly rich guy. He said, "Every month, put a little money aside into a mutual fund." I didn't realize he was right until I was 28.

    Just because she readily gives blow jobs and hand jobs before you
    marry her, is no guarantee she will continue AFTER the ceremony.
    In fact, it's almost assured she won'T

    BTW, it's "advice you wish you had taken", not "advice you wish you would have taken"...
