Lifesperspectives shows us 10 prominent websites and their founders. And how young they were when they started.

I think the advantage when you’re young is that you have nothing to lose. When you’re young, you don’t think about the mistakes and how much they’ll cost you. You’ll see the opportunities.

Could this be related to the fact that younger people tend to underestimate time? Perhaps younger people tend to be more willing to take risks, as they underestimate time. If you think time passes quickly, you’re more likely to grab hold of opportunities for fear of missing it. At least that’s my opinion.

Either way, the lesson from this is to stay young. Even if not physically, try to keep yourself young at heart. Keep yourself innovative, keep yourself open to opportunities.
