What advice would you give your 18 your old self ...

If you are a few years over 18

What advice would you tap yourself on the shoulder and give yourself?

hmm, if we take finances out of the equation (which would make me a multibillionare) I would probably fail to follow my advice...
You see, I'm usually pretty good at giving myself advice, even when i was young, but for whatever reason I fail to follow my words of wisdom.

Watch less TV and play less video games. It is wasted time that I wish I had back now. Instead, find something constructive that interests you and work on that/study it.

Workout, eat better. Healthy decisions you make now will develop into (hopefully) long-lasting habits.

Learn about world politics and try to understand issues form many different sides. Getting locked into a single view is worse than having no view at all. Your world is bigger than what you 'feel' and things that happen in far off lands have effects here. Realize that anyone telling you 'the way things are' (even the news) probably has ulterior motives.

Probably the one that sums up all the others would be: Get out of your comfort zone! Like Kamus said, we usually know what we should do, we just don't feel like doing it. We are comfortable doing what we do (TV, junk food) and don't want to bother with other stuff that we can deal with later. Bother with it now!

When trying to make a tough decision go with the harder of the two.

This, and a few others:

Unless imminent harm or death is involved, pause before acting.
Never stop learning.
Don't give in.
Family first.
Shut off your mind once in awhile.
Outdoors is usually better than indoors.
Slow down.
