Advice to my younger self

What advice would post-sabbatical Rinku give to the Rinku of 20 years ago? - Steve from San Francisco

Dear Steve-

I try to have compassion for my younger self while giving her advice. She did the best she could with what she had at the time. Still, there are some things that might have made life easier and conserved her energy to generate greater impact in the world. Three occur to me now, after taking a couple of months off from work. Twenty years ago, I was 30.
