This post originates from a paragraph in this post, written by Dr Grumble. What is the best age? Twenties, thirties, forties? With age comes wisdom, or from my experience cynicism. Don’t get me wrong though, I know a lot of older people out there who are optimistic and can still past on their cumulative knowledge to the younger generation.
So when will I peak? Physically I’m in my prime, playing sports has never been easier for me. At school I was terrible at PE. But Karate changed that.
Mentally? Certainly I am no cleverer then what I was during my A-levels, but I am certainly better at working, am more disciplined and organised with myself.
Life experience? Would say I’m getting there. Compared to other students, being a medic means you are generally exposed to more of life’s ups and downs then other courses. But I still struggle to adapt to new placements, situations, etc, some of the time. Assuming you get better as you get older.
