FOX32 Interview with Eyal Danon about the Principle of 18

Watch this recent FOX32 News Interview with Eyal Danon, Author of The Principle of 18

FOX News interview with the author of The Principle of 18. In keeping with conventional wisdom, most of us start focusing on career-building and making money in our early 20s — and often discover later that the professional path we chose wasn’t a very good fit.

Sure, we’re paying the bills. But we aren’t truly happy. That’s because your 20s are far too young to focus on making money, says Eyal Danon, CEO and author of The Principle of 18 (releasing January 18, 2022).

In fact, there is no need to make serious money before you turn 36.

Instead, Danon advises stepping out of autopilot mode and structuring your career and life’s journey around five consecutive 18-year phases.

In the second phase, from ages 18 to 36 dubbed the “Explorer,” he recommends searching for the one area you are most passionate about, and prioritizing this search over making serious money.

Here’s why:

  • We all need a chance to explore our dreams.
  • It’s better to take your time early in the game to figure out what you are good at, what you truly love and what your natural gifts are.
  • This is the best time to take more risks.
  • By exploring your dreams, you’ll minimize your regrets.
  • It’s no use trying to measure up to those around you—the ones trying to make money in their 20s.
  • If you focus on finding the right path that’s aligned with your dreams, the money will flow in during the next phase: the Builder years, from 36 to 54.
