If you could give the graduating class of 2020 two pieces of advice, what would it be? 

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:

  1. Figure out your values and live by them. Its easier to make decisions that way.
  2. You have the ability to make small choices every day. When made well they add up exponentially over time.
  3. You will go farther as a team than you will go alone.
  4. You are a direct reflection of the 5 people you spend the most time with.
  5. Focus on your strengths and partner with others to shore up your weaknesses
  6. Life is a marathon, not a sprint. Take it one mile at a time.
  7. Everyone is struggling with something you know nothing about. Don’t judge people. Be kind.
  8. Get comfortable being in uncomfortable situations. It’s where you grow the most.
  9. Failure is not a permanent state. Embrace it as a means to grow and move forward.
  10. 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!
