Dream big and take small steps

Welcome back to school! A new school year means a fresh start in your academic journey and new goals for yourself (and not just academic-focused ones). Before the school slips away from you, spend some time thinking about where you would like to be at the end of June. Consider your academic, co-curricular, and personal aspirations for the school year and what you will need to do to reach them. Dream big! But remember big dreams are usually multifaceted and are best accomplished by dividing your goals into many small steps.  Work toward your big goals by checking off the small steps that you must take to accomplish your dreams over time. As you check each completed step off of your to-do list; reflect on where you are now, where you are heading, and where you started. In June you will be amazed at your progress and proud of a year well spent. Photo by Dana Lookadoo on Flickr Creative Commons License Photo used as is.  No changes...
