B.T.’s Corner: The never-ending question

By Brian L. Thomas

One of the hardest questions that college students ask themselves is: “What am I going to do with my life?”

As if life is one huge problem and all we have to do is figure out the formula! Unless you have access to a crystal ball, planning the rest of your life is practically impossible.

The good thing is that we don’t have to right now; figuring out the rest of your life is not what college is for. The purpose of college is to give you the best opportunity in the career of your choice.

As students, we struggle to make a life decision rather than a career decision. Life can still throw us some major curve balls no matter how much time we spend, how hard we try or how carefully we plan. The best thing we can do to ensure our future is a success is take care of our current and most valuable gift: the present.
