Today’s posted TED Talk is by Dr. Meg Jay, author of the book The Defining Decade. Her thesis: what we do in our twenties matters, and life cannot be delayed just because people are now settling down later.

My biggest takeaways from the talk and her book:

– The best time to work on your marriage is before you have one.
– Developing a network of weak ties isn’t as fun or comfortable as having a small group of close friends – but it is extremely important in the long run.
– The importance of calming down at work, and in life in general.
It’s worth watching – I think Jay’s points are common sense that this generation is trying to ignore.
