Passing Along Advice to A Younger Generation – What Would You Say?

Advice is like snow – the softer it falls, the longer it dwells upon, and the deeper in sinks into the mind.

Samuel Taylor Coleridge

I tend to be a #’s  guy.  At work, we are always looking at data.  So, after a while, I was very curious as to who was really reading Prepper  Website.  I found out that there are many older men reading Prepper Website.

I’m on the younger end of the majority of men who read Prepper Website.  And although I like to share my knowledge and what I’ve learned in life with others, there are many out there who have even more experience and have even better advice.  I’ve created Your Preparedness Story as a means for others to share “their story” or experiences with others online.  But I thought that it would be a great idea to have one easy place to share little bits of advice with the younger generation.

If you could pass on a few lines of advice to a younger man, what would you say?  What would you do different?  What would you want to change or focus on more or less?

All of us at times become introspective and ask ourselves questions that have to deal with “meaning” and “what truly matters.”  In those times, it is good to have someone that you can bounce things off of.  But, many young men don’t have someone that they can ask advice from.  Or, maybe they are just embarrassed or don’t know how to word what is on their heart.

I hope this post/article provides a place for some advice to be shared from those men who have lived some and have the experiences to share.

There are no rules here.  All I would ask is that you answer honestly and provide advice that you believe might be helpful to someone else. Your answers don’t necessarily have to be preparedness related.  Besides that, anyone who is older than the age of the question can answer.  For example – Someone in their 50’s could leave a response for the 40’s, 30’s and 20’s question.  Someone in their 70’s could leave a response for every question.

    So glad you are doing this. We of the older generation DO have much to contribute, but in this age of technology we feel we have been left behind, and consequently feel so out of touch we perceive the younger generation views us as having little to nothing to say.

    The one thing we do have to contribute is not technological, but practical, human, down-to-earth, realistic perspectives — and old time ‘technology.’ The kind where the rubber meets the road kind of perspectives. And I’m sure you will hear much of that from your responses.

    Blessings! And keep it coming. We need all the practical instruction and encouragement we can get.
