There is a saying “Youth is too precious to be wasted on young people”!! What does this mean? What is youth? Biologically, a general definition of youth can be, a person between ages 18 and 30! During this phase human being is generally physically at his/her fittest in the life cycle, mind is open to many and any new ideas. The person wants to try many things from very adventurous, which could sometime border on foolish or very risky. Adrenaline pumps so strongly in that phase, that the person will not think about consequences. We see that most of the serious achievements of persons happen in this age group. It could be thinking of creating Apple Computers by Steve Jobs, reaching athletic milestones, becoming a Sachin Tendulkar, new scientific discoveries and so on!
But if you see the number of such people is extremely small. All those who have achieved so much at such a young age were mature way beyond their biological age. This is probably the meaning of the title of this post. I feel there are so many advantages of youth (we can call them resources) that the young people generally may not have the wisdom, maturity, smartness to use them to the full potential. This can happen in work, in love or in managing an organization.
A matured, stable not so young a person can really enjoy the situation better than young ones! They can appreciate nuances better, they are like old wine!! Young person and matured persons will enjoy the same situation in a much different way. Youth may not understand why a certain situation has developed in a particular way due to less maturity. Just for example a matured person will nurse his drink where a young person will drink his drink! Do you get me?
Well friends give your take on this!
