I think as you get older, when you reach 40 as you head towards 50, 60—hello—you should approach the world with a more sort of don’t give a shit kind of fearlessness. 

Get more confident, not worry so much about things, try and play to your intrinsic strengths, look at the screw-ups that you made.

Definitely increase your personal style, flamboyance, be less inhibited.  That doesn’t include becoming a swinger or anything insane like that or taking up drugs, but just approach life with a little more laissez faire and a little more flamboyance.
