Calgary Mayor Naheed Nenshi had some honest advice for his younger self.
"The 23-year-old Naheed was working on Bay Street in Toronto, making a lot of money, thinking about graduate school," said the mayor in a video that's part of The Agenda's series Dude: Where's My Future.
"He thought he had it going on," said Nenshi with a smile.
Nenshi had two key pieces of advice for himself. First, he said, the 23-year-old body does not return.
"Keep going to the gym and make sure you don't let it slide," he said.
Secondly, he told his younger self that there's a lot more to life than a paycheque, and that he knew this in his heart. He reminded himself he had the power to make real changes in the community, even at a younger age.
"Get on it," he said.
