At work, I changed jobs and joined a new team. And each time, the story is the same.

“I thought you just graduated from school.”

“You look so young.”

Well, indeed, I have a Tardis and have just jumped between jobs since I was 25 years old.

Do you want to know my secret?

Here is a partial answer: Blacks don’t crack!

…and also the Tardis!

I am 40 years old. I have two kids, 2 years and 4 months, as I am writing these lines.

My mind might try to dupe me into thinking that I am 25. My body reminds me that I am 40.

How come some people look and feel younger than their age?

How come other people feel like they just dropped their youth necklace like Melisandre in Game of Thrones?

Let us die young or let us live forever…”

From the pharaohs of ancient Egypt to the last person who will be born on this planet, we all have had a version of wanting to be young forever.

The sentence above is a quote from a song from Jay-Z, Forever Young.

Let’s enjoy the featuring version with Queen B, aka Beyoncé, which is my go-to song when I leave work every single day:

Even Beyoncé or Jay-Z will not be forever young despite their wealth and success.

Yet, they get the essential part of the equation and apply it.

There are 3 ways to try to be young forever:

  1. Ugly solution
  2. Bad Solution
  3. Good solution
