What are some of the most impactful memories in your life? A graduation? First love? A major success? What is it about these moments that make them so special?
According to Eric Barker (author of Barking Up the Wrong Tree), research has shown our most treasured memories happen between the ages of 15 to 30. This is because after reaching a certain stage in life, comfort is achieved and our lives turn stagnant. Because of this, impactful memories need to be made, namely through pushing yourself out of your comfort zone. You can read more about how to do this on Barker’s blog.
