I'm getting to the point in my career where I know enough about what interests me and what I want to do that I get frustrated in retrospect by the perception of wasted time on the path I've taken to get where I am (professionally and creatively). it's really hard to place value all of my experiences—especially experiences that feel like false starts or dead ends after the fact— even though I know that I wouldn't be the same person without them.

tl;dr, I am old and bitter and the ability to make decisions about your life is wasted on the young

@aparrish i think maybe the young, acting in the absence of perspective on most decisions, don't actually have as much of that ability as we attribute to our past selves in retrospect?
