It’s time to shave that scruffy face of yours (if your a dude), get an instant makeover and go back to school. We are most definitely in the year 2012, and regardless of what the Mayan calendar says, time will continue to tick tock forward. It’s equal parts scary and depressing to know that life moves with or without you, but it just does! And so it is true, do your best to enjoy it.
Every year people are making big decisions about how they will handle the new year. Whether it’s starting their own business, getting a new job, or even going back to college so they can get a degree in a field they will love, people are making big plans. I recall a quote from Harry S. Truman that I stuck to my bathroom mirror in high school, “make no little plans, make 1 big plan and spend the rest of your life carrying it out.” I did this so I would be reminded of the one sport I pursued all throughout high school. Needless to say, I never made it to the NFL! Harry, where are you now when I need you?
If you want to start that business you have dreamed about for years, there may not be a better time. If you have been thinking about going back to school at 30, 40, or even 60, it still might be the best time for you. Remember, life moves forward with or without you. This is only a breath and a whisper. Find a school that has your programs of interest, go back to college, and get your degree!
