The Defining Decade

by Meg Jay

The Defining Decade

Meg Jay

Overview

Across Western culture, the common wisdom holds that our twenties are a time best spent exploring ourselves, defining our personalities, and chasing our dreams. But far from feeling empowering and joyful, our twenties can oftentimes seem messy, without a clear purpose or guiding light. And while many are quick to point out just how pivotal your twenties should be, far fewer stick around to tell us what, exactly, we should be doing.

Fortunately, clinical psychologist and University of Virginia professor Meg Jay is here to help people make sense of these turbulent years. As a specialist in young adulthood and human development, Jay offers sound advice on how to make the most of your twenties, and begin establishing the future you were destined for.

Favorite Quote

"The future isn't written in the stars. There are no guarantees. So claim your adulthood. Be intentional. Get to work. Pick your family. Do the math. Make your own certainty. Don't be defined by what you didn't know or didn't do. You are deciding your life right now."
