  • Q: Who knows what they want to be when they grow up? Why? Good, now write it down.

  • It’s a hard decision but I think it’s relatively easy to decide if you know what you want to do. That’s why I asked you guy to write it down. I like to think about it as more of a choice between guidance (school) and passion. In the real world you get the opportunity to live out your passion day in and day out learning all the practical aspects needed to be successful. In school, you have a ton of mentors there to guide you if you don’t know what you want to do.
  • So you have the college vs the real world….In college you get the atmosphere which has the benefit of meeting folks, joining clubs, making life long friends, etc. , Unfortunately you can’t do some jobs without have a degree.
  • THE END. That’s it. I hope I’ve inspired you to go out and take control of your life. Whether you want to go out there and tackle the college system and beat it or you want to do something on your own in the scariness of the real life either way this is your chance to start today. Lots of things are going to happen to you in life you just have to react well, be nice and keep learning. From this moment forward you will take responsibility of your life. Don’t live someone else’s idea for you. Everyone has a story make sure yours is great. So you can come back and tell yours.
