What Juice is Worth the Squeeze?
It hit me recently: We have only about 15-17 waking hours each day, and a fraction of those will be in undoubtedly be in pursuit of something. Given the limited nature of mental energy and time constraints, what is worth pushing oneself to do? Conversely, in your experience, what juice hasn't been worth the squeeze? Looking to re-evaluate my priorities for the new decade, and could use some ideas. Let me know what you think.

RE: What Juice is Worth the Squeeze?
Anything that contributes to your financial/time freedom is worth it. Also, if it doesn’t contribute to that, but stirs the fire of passions in you, I’d say it’s worth it

RE: What Juice is Worth the Squeeze?
What is worth the effort and focus is going to change as you get older, and as you go through different life stages. Life experience and new information will change your view on what is valuable and important

But in general:
1. Your health (nutrition and exercise and being able to pass a general medical check up at all times)
2. Leverage and control in all areas of your life - where you live, where you work, and financial resources to do things important for you, for exit plans, and for emergencies. Invest/have a nest egg, but also have active income
3. Personal relationships - if you find good people, male and/or female in your life who respect/appreciate you, are transparent and honest, and keep their word to you - do everything in your power to return the sentiment, and let them know you value them.
4. Take some time out for leisure/hobbies/a change of scenery to freshen your mind up every so often away from work, and as a bonding experience with people you value
5. Optional - pick something about the world you wish was different for you growing up, and put time and effort into changing that thing. It could be something as simple as educating people on something you wish you knew about, or raising awareness on topics and information you feel should be more available and promoted in society

*I would say at some point find a great girl and start a healthy family, and join a great real life community of like minded people at some point. But, those things can be less in your control than other things and not always possible.

This is very solid advice, +1. Given that what is worth the effort in focus depends on your stage in life, is there anything in particular that would be worth it for someone college-aged?

Volunteering and giving back.

I used to think of volunteering as merely a contribution of labor, like writing a check.

Done right, it’s a transformative experience. It allows you to see things from another perspective. It can be mentally rewarding if you find a group that particularly values your unique gifts.

Selfishly, Tucker Max has said in interviews that volunteering is a good way to find a quality mate. He recommends the Humane society in particular

If you can tie things together that serve multiple purposes, you will be laughing.

For example, if your work and play line up, and/or you get deep fulfillment from your work, you will be so much better off.

You will get a different answer from everyone you ask.

But, if you are asking me specifically, I'd say a college aged guy would be best served focussing on two things:

1 - Money (and his money making skills)
2 - Getting out and having as many different experiences about the world as possible, including in your own country, and also doing one or two big travel trips to see different regions and countries.

Why?

- Money is the tool that allows you to do almost everything in life. Lose your job? You've got money to fall back on to live. Want to go travel? You've got money. Want to invest? You've got money. Want to live in a better area? You've got money. One of your family members gets sick? You've got money. You get sick? You've got money.

- You have to know how the game of life in played. Different experiences will allow you to do that and also allow you to figure out what you like and don't like, and give you a better idea of what you want to pursue in life.

When you are college aged - you are generally money, skill and experience poor. So, I'd personally work on those things first.

RE: What Juice is Worth the Squeeze?
Couple things that came to mind:

1. Reading books that have stood the test of time.
The tradeoff is that you are being sedentary and passive. But reading older books is the principle way to get the context that there is "nothing new under the sun", and also the only way to pick the brain of great men of the past.

2. Creating/sharing in-jokes with your lover.
Romance is rejuvenating. Humor is the same. Combine for exponentially maxed pleasure, perspective, and humility. Plus it's like a well you can draw on during rough times.

3. Cultivating relationships with parents & grandparents.
People love to be respected and looked up to. And there is so much to be gained by hearing the stories of past generations (as long as you weigh what they say and don't just accept 100% of it at face value). Plus, at the end of your life (or theirs) I'd wager you will be wishing you goofed/hugged/shared stories with your ma and pa more.

4. Knowing the companionship of an animal.
This applies whether you raise beasts for work or for leisure. Man is master of the animals, but that comes with it some responsibility and simple pleasures. Watch how they move, how they lounge, how they are driven by instinct but also display unique personalities. Generations of our forefathers put energy into domestication... never refuse a beast a little head pat or chin scruff.

I don't think that's a selfish statement. If you find a suitable match by volunteering and build a family you and your community won twice.
