It’s the end of your junior year…
- what have you done to date/how much have you accomplished on your path?
- what are you doing right now (well, in the month of May)?
- what is your plan for the summer?
Maybe it’s time to double-check that you have a plan for your college search… Do you?
How do you feel about it? Do you believe that you have all the pieces in place? If not, what are your ideas for pulling together all the details?
Is it feeling big, scary, overwhelming? What do you do, what personal strengths do you call upon to support you when you have a BIG project or feel anxious about accomplishing a task? I LOVE working with students to identify their strengths and then planning with them about how to use them in developing their goals, strategies and timelines. If you love doing that too, now’s the time to start-don’t wait, take action! If you’re unsure of how to move forward, find some support… Can you seek assistance from a parent, older sister/brother/close relative, guidance counselor/college advisor, find information online on sites and blogs, get books from the library, ask you parent(s) about working with a coach… there are lots of resources available to support you once you decide to take the first step.
Take action… even if it’s imperfect action!
