But if you take that logic, you should consider life unfair, because the test of truth in life is not whether we can remember what we learned in school, but whether we are prepared for change, whether we are prepared for jobs that haven’t been created, to use technologies that haven’t been invented, to solve problems we just can’t anticipate today.

I cannot believe that the purpose of life is to be happy. I think the purpose of life is to be useful, to be responsible, to be compassionate. It is, above all to matter, to count, to stand for something, to have made some difference that you lived at all.
What Twitter is missing
These are some features that, while possible in third-party applications, I believe should be integrated into the main Twitter product.
Sure, the favorite button does the trick, but I want my “favorites” to only be my favorite tweets. Instead, my “favorites” often turn out to be tweets I want to go back to when I’m on my laptop. A simple “read later” button that allowed me to create a queue of tweets to get back to would be an incredible value add for many power users. I don’t think this action should appear on the interaction tab for users.
I’ve consumed enough
Enough blog posts, enough tweets, enough signing up for every new startup, enough of all this consumption…it’s time to start creating (more).
I’m know I’m not alone in my ridiculous amount of consumption, looking around the average classroom at my university confirms that. Any student with a smartphone (the majority) is constantly texting, checking Twitter/Facebook, posting to Instagram/Pinterest, or playing a game (worst of all).
Find a way to say yes to things. Say yes to invitations to a new country, say yes to meet new friends, say yes to learn something new. Yes is how you get your first job, and your next job, and your spouse, and even your kids. Even if it’s a bit edgy, a bit out of your comfort zone, saying yes means that you will do something new, meet someone new, and make a difference. Yes lets you stand out in a crowd, be the optimist, see the glass full, be the one everyone comes to. Yes is what keeps us all young.
