Kids, listen to an old man who’s been through a lot.
Take care of your wrists, hands, and shoulders. I know gaming through your 20’s and 30’s is a blast, but when you don’t take care of yourself for 20 years, you might wake up in your 40’s with pain in your wrists when you’ve been tying for too long. Or spending too much time on a mouse makes your wrist hurt even more.
It’s especially frustrating when you’re trying to build up a long-running entertainment business that you want to do for the rest of your life. I would want nothing more than to write and game for the rest of my life, but I’m going to have to be very careful with myself if I want to spent do the next 30 years doing what I love.
So take care of yourself now, when you’re young. You might just live long enough to regret your choices someday.
