At the beginning of 1999, an investigative research project set out to gather the first-hand life experience of hundreds of highly accomplished individuals, among whom were leading entrepreneurs, writers, teachers, film-makers, athletes and soldiers. The project also visited world-famous companies, art colleges, dance academies, schools and universities.
Younglives.com offers individual young men and women a tool-kit of good ideas with which to make the most of life. Rather than everyone having to re-invent the wheel for themselves, this research hopes to pass around a little of what seems to work. Younglives.com is inspired by the spirit of Sir Isaac Newton, who said: "If I have seen further, it is by standing on the shoulders of giants."
Younglivesuk.com offers a 'map of life,' showing some possible routes and some destinations that come highly recommended. Some of these thoughts will just be a reminder of stuff you already know but occasionally forget to apply. Some will be a whole new way of looking at things. The report isn't meant as a set of rules to follow as if 'one size fits all,' it simply offers you a bird's-eye view that might help you decide where you want to head and how.
www.younglivesuk.com/ ======================================= This is a great website with a lot of good advice. You have to register to be able to view the reports and you can also download them in PDF format.

Hahaha! I thought the address was supposed to read "young lives suk," but it's "young lives UK..." I get it now!! lol ;D
When I first saw it I thought it was some kind of argument for youth euthanasia, and then as I was reading the post I figured the goal of the site was to help young lives stop sucking so bad, and then I had my epiphany... ;D
In that light, this sounds like a really useful site Tranqui! It only makes sense to attempt to learn from people who went down that same road before, and did it right.
