Where Are You Headed?
Where are you headed? With the new year, many people ponder what their new year’s resolution should be. One suggestion would be to determine a goal, lay out a plan to reach that goal, and then start working towards it. I read that the legendary quarterback Archie Manning encouraged his sons to write down their goals. Peyton Manning writes his on notecards. I don’t know what was on the cards, but having specific goals and working towards them seems to have worked pretty well for the Mannings. Sometimes students get discouraged by the length of many HVACR programs. The simple truth is nobody can make you a successful technician, or anything else for that matter, in a couple of weeks. The only person that can really make you successful is you. So let me ask you, what are you planning for the next couple of years? Time will pass whether or not you work towards a goal. So where will you be in two years – graduating from a program of study and embarking on a new career, or will you be exactly where you are today?
