From the Ted Talk by Meg Jay: Essential questions to ask your future self

Unscramble the Blue Letters

But for a little bit of background, in 2013, I gave a talk about why our ttineews matter. So it's about almost 10 years later. I'm still a clinical psychologist who specializes in 20-somethings. But these days, the 20-somethings I see, they know their 20s matter. So they want to get them right. They want to move to the right city. They want to take the right job. They want to find the right partner. They want to have the right answers. Well, the bad news is there are no right answers. There are no right asrnwes for where you should live or where you should work or how you should sttele down. These are what are called "large world problems" because there are just too many unknowns. No app, no algorithm, no enneagram can ever solve these prelombs or answer these qtonieuss for you.

But for a little bit of background, in 2013, I gave a talk about why our twenties matter. So it's about almost 10 years later. I'm still a clinical psychologist who specializes in 20-somethings. But these days, the 20-somethings I see, they know their 20s matter. So they want to get them right. They want to move to the right city. They want to take the right job. They want to find the right partner. They want to have the right answers. Well, the bad news is there are no right answers. There are no right answers for where you should live or where you should work or how you should settle down. These are what are called "large world problems" because there are just too many unknowns. No app, no algorithm, no enneagram can ever solve these problems or answer these questions for you.
