Note how many of Schwartz's lessons have a strong values component--not more than is warranted, but more than you typically see when such lists are targeted at younger people. Three hypotheses: 1) As we get older, we have greater awareness of what really matters, and it's not "have a go-to black dress that can go from office to evening with a change of necklace." 2) The pragmatic advice for the under-30 set ("save for retirement") approaches obsolescence as you reach the later decades. 3) Legacy concerns?
Having recently turned 30, I'm thinking of writing my own such list, so I can look back at it 30 years hence and chuckle at my awkward mix of idealism and relativism. Related lists: Charles Wheelan with some advice for new graduates; Pamela Redman Satran, at Glamour, on 30 things women should have and know by the time they turn 30; Kayla Webley, at Time, with a critique of Glamour's list; Jen Doll, at The Atlantic Wire, with a critique of such articles 'for women' in general.
