Students are graduating in unprecedented times. Without the traditional in-person closing chapter of graduating together and their right of passage. They are craving contact, are anxious about entering a workforce with 20+ % unemployment and a pandemic strangling our communities.
They need our wisdom. Your wisdom.
What are your two pieces of advice you would offer them?
Here is a top 10 list I created:
- Figure out your values and live by them. Its easier to make decisions that way.
- You have the ability to make small choices every day. When made well they add up exponentially over time.
- You will go farther as a team than you will go alone.
- You are a direct reflection of the 5 people you spend the most time with.
- Focus on your strengths and partner with others to shore up your weaknesses
- Life is a marathon, not a sprint. Take it one mile at a time.
- Everyone is struggling with something you know nothing about. Don’t judge people. Be kind.
- Get comfortable being in uncomfortable situations. It’s where you grow the most.
- Failure is not a permanent state. Embrace it as a means to grow and move forward.
- Travel the world, experience new cultures and people, it’s like writing the pages in the chapters of your life.
Please share your advice with me and I will bring back to all of you in part 2!
The kick in the pants you need. Sign-up for a better start to your work day.
