Here are today’s top takeaways:
- Find your niche. Move beyond the transactional way of being of just checking off boxes. Get the A. Be less focused on what I’m getting out of this and instead ask why are these classes in my degree plan. Always ask why because there is no formula for the perfect college experience.
- Focus less on my major and what job it will equal you can get. Focus instead on what you’re interested in. Pick a major you are fascinated by and interested in. you’ll be more engaged and develop skills and network with like-minded people.
- Use experience to cultivate things that matter to you If you are going through motions, you’re not going to be very engaged. Forge your own path. Take advantage of everything college has to offer- the networks, the people, the classes etc. You’re going to have better experience.
- Start being who you want to be right out of the GATE!! You are close to the ballpark if you’re living that goal from day one.
Follow curiosity and be open-minded to try things. Explore, experiment and take risks – take healthy risks. We often get stuck because we’re not exploring when we’re young so take lots of classes and have an open mind
