Perhaps it’s just a coincidence but I’ve noticed a recent run of “Advice to my Younger Self” articles in different publications. It is a good format and often produces some funny and wise pieces. But I can’t help spotting a gap in this market: Advice to my Older Self.
I don’t, after all, care what I should have done differently some decades ago since there is nothing I can do about it. And while my wisdom might be useful to a younger someone else, which self-respecting 20-year-old reads life tips from the middle-aged?
