I have been traveling this week and have not been able to post as I would like to normally. However, I just want to put down a few of my thoughts here for you. As we progress through college planning, and all of its various and sometimes complicated directions, some leading to positive outcomes, some leading to dead ends.. there is a question that has to be answered here.
Just what is it that you are planning? Are you planning just for the next four years or longer to get a degree that you may not even like, or doesn’t even fit you? Are you planning for the next 40 years, in hopes that you can actually get the degree and career that fits you and that can make you feel fulfilled? At the end of the day, what is it that you are planning?
I would submit to you that what you should be planning, whether you are the parents or the students is to actually Create the life that you desire. Do you even know what that will look like? Well, you might say that is impossible, since no one knows the future. Is it? Really! I would submit to you that your current situation is something that you created already, whether you like it or not. It is the culmination of choices that you have made in your life up to this point.
So as I continue to build up this site, and create the content that will help you and your family make wise college planning choices, and actually put together a career plan that you can afford, please know that on top of all of this in-depth planning, the over arching goal is for you to create the life you desire in the way you desire it. It is helping you have what is known as “Structured thinking” as opposed to “Chaotic Thinking”. It is best discovered in “A Bug Free Mind”. More on this on other blogs.
For today, do not waste anymore time or money on “Chaotic Thinking” as this is what the majority of the world, like 99% is doing. Let’s work together to create the life you desire by design. Please contact me at my website.
Thanks for listening today. Talk to you soon.
