Great article Lorenzo, thank you very much. I love reading (and writing) more about the "life" aspects of software developers. As you mentioned, along with social skills they become more and more important.

Apart from the sections "Stop worrying" and "take care of yourself", I think that the most important thing is to believe in yourself and stick to your own ideas. I'm in my early 30s and there have been so many moments in my life where I wish I put certain ideas into practice, but I didn't do it because no one else would think about them or I had the impression that everyone else thought those ideas or potential products were stupid.

If there's one thing I can tell software developers in their early 20s, it's that they should try out more things, put their ideas into practice and to never be afraid of failure.

Hope that makes sense.
