A bright new college year has started. Lots of new and returning students are finding their way. Literally, for the freshmen, but also in other ways. What do I want to learn this year? How can I reach my goals, develop my talents, create value for myself and others?
Also for the lecturers it’s a new start. They innovated their curriculum or have a different role in education. We all discover, learn and create. Together.
Which possibilities lie in front of you? What do you want to accomplish and how are you going to do that? Who can help you and whom can you support? Who do you want to be within this year?
Try to think of a metaphor, a mission statement or an image which helps you to hold on to when things get fough. We all know that the number of students who are present now, will decrease the next months. What helpts you to be successful?
Take a pile of magazines, a piece of paper and create a moodboard with illustrations, and maybe some quotes, to remind yourself of your own goals when you need them to. Also, it’s fun to make them. Ans please let us and everybody know what your secret to success is and leave a comment.
And remember: learn the rules like a pro, so you can break them like an artist!
