30 Things to Do Before Turning 30
They say life begins at 30. But for some turning 30 is the beginning of the end! Whichever way you see it you’ve gotta tick off these thirty things before your thirtieth birthday.
30. Learn How To File Your Own Taxes
Remember how you struggled with your taxes during your twenties? Well, by the time you turn thirty you must know how to do your taxes.
29. Stop Living For the Social Media
Posing, pouting, making people jealous shouldn’t be your motive now. Leave all that for the twenty-somethings. Agreed that social media is necessary; but living for it shows that your priorities are petty.
Your vote shows that you’re a responsible citizen of the country.
27. Read At Least 30 Life Changing Books
When I say thirty ‘life changing’ books, ‘Half Girlfriend’ does not count. Read books that will give you a life changing perspective that will stay with you forever and which will help you to lay down your own rules.
26. Run a Marathon
Only a runner knows what a long and steady run means to him. Completing a marathon requires great discipline. If you achieve this one, you are ready for greater challenges in life.
25. Have One Hilarious Blind Date Story To Tell
It’s ok if you are bad at dating. Horrible dates can be turned into the best ‘bar stories’.
24. Attend One Memorable Music Concert
Make it a point to attend one memorable music concert, where you will get to see your favourite artist performing live on stage.
23. Say ‘Enough is Enough’ and Quit

Since you can’t afford to do this after 30, you must get out of menial jobs as soon as possible. Say goodbye to bad jobs, however say it in style.
22. Get an Adrenaline Rush
You want to go bungee jumping? Overcome your fear by going for adventurous sports and treks with your pals.
21. Find Your Own Central Perk
By the time you turn 30, you must find a place like Central Perk or MacLaren’s pub to hang out with your friends on a regular basis.
20. Take a Road Trip
Go on a road trip with your friends and come back with some cherished memories.
19. Deliver a Great Speech
Whether it’s a farewell or wedding, give an inspiring speech for which you will be always remembered.
18. Learn a Foreign Language
Try to learn a new language. Impress others with your impeccable French or Spanish or Italian.
17. Shed Those Extra Kilos
Don’t do it for others. Do it for yourself. Losing weight not only has a feel good factor but it also makes you realise how you were ignoring your health all this while.
16. Stop Being ‘Chindi’
Stop being stingy and live a little bit. Take friends for dinner; throw a lavish birthday party at least once in a while without thinking how much that will burn a hole in your pocket.
15. Learn Swimming
It’s an essential life skill, which you must learn.
14. Understand Alcohol
You can’t drink like a teenager and puke everything later. You must handle your drink like a gentleman. If you can’t, then kindly stick to breezers.
13. Travel Alone
Traveling alone helps you understand the power of solitary harmony. Embarking on a journey where you are your own map, teaches you more about life than anything else.
12. Splurge on an Item You Can’t Afford
It’s ok to splurge on something which you can’t afford. You work hard, therefore you deserve it.
11. Learn To Cook a Meal
Enough of noodles and fried eggs. Learn to cook exotic cuisine and surprise your mom.
10. Watch All the Popular Sitcoms and Movies
From ‘Friends’ to ‘Breaking Bad’ to ‘Pulp Fiction’ and to ‘Kaagaz Ke Phool’, you must not miss the popular sitcoms which form a significant part of the pop culture.
9. Be Someone’s Role Model
Pat yourself if someone considers you their role model. You are already a hero.
8. Understand Physical Intimacy
Don’t consider sex as just a need. Casual sex offers instant gratification, but that’s that.
7. Learn How to Dress Up For the Job You Want and Not For the Job You Have
It’s never too early to suit up!
6. Test Drive Your Dream Vehicle
5. Know Your Roots
Never forget the place where you were born. It‘s there where everything started.
3. Survive a Heartbreak
It takes courage to endure the pain of a heartbreak. Learn how to be stoic and move on. This will only make you stronger.
2. Find at least one ‘4 AM’ Friend
You have 700 friends on Facebook? Okay, then. Now think about this – whom will you call at 4 am if you feel down and want some friend support? None from the 700 friends? Well, that’s what we are talking about. Find at least one true friend who will stay by you come what may.
1. Be at Peace With Yourself
This is extremely important. If you’re at peace with yourself now, then you’re ready to rock your thirties and the remainder of your life. Accept reality and move on. Don’t compare yourself with others. Your purpose in life is different.
