When we were younger, we all thought, “When I grow up things will be easy”
I’m sure you thought that life as an adult was just a breeze until you found out that growing up is a trap and if you knew, you would have stayed a child like Peter Pan, for life.
Well, in any case, you’re already here.
If you don’t know how well you’re doing, here are some things to look out for in order to find out if you are hacking adulting.
1 You have more than one bank account WITH MONEY IN IT!
You remember those days when you were straigtht up hustling and each time you withdrew from the ATM you felt that ka-pinch of pain?
If you don't have to worry about this anymore, my friend, you have hacked your life in one way already.
2 You put everything in your calendar
If you arrange everything into your calendar even the fun stuff like hiking and a day out with your firends, then it shows how much organization you have in your life. You don't believe in people who are "fashionably late" and you understand the value of time more.
3 Comfort over fashion, easy!
Squeezing into an outfit that clearly wasn't designed for you used to be your idea of a knockout wardrobe, the sore back and swelling feet just don't seem to make sense anymore. What's more, you know what outfits best contour and compliment your figure, and you're loving the freedom of not having to mess around with your threads when you should be enjoying yourself.
4 You embrace routine
Getting into the mindset of preparing for the week ahead, only to let one little slip send the whole programme crashing down: weekly work-outs become monthly, clean-eating days become rarities, dirty laundry dies an unfortunate, moth-eaten death, we've all expereinced this. Due to this, you no longer find unpredictable lifestyles fun.
5 You invest more.
Now that you're older and wiser – and have also realised that anything over a couple of thousand shillings is far too much for a pair of sneakers – you're ready to up the stakes on your passive income.
You're ready to make a decision now and see the results later.
6 You make appointments for all you do
You find yourself making regular appointments for the things that matter – reassessing your health insurance, networking to keep your career options open, getting that suspicious mole checked once a year. Your time is money, so you make it a point to plan for all the things that don't go to plan.
