So there's this awesome quote from Steve Jobs that I like
to revisit every once in a while, and it goes:
"Everything around you that you call life was made up by
"people that were no smarter than you and you can change it,
"you can influence it, you can build your own things that
"other people can use."
And I wanted to share that quote with you guys because
well, for one it's just an incredibly insightful quote
taken as a whole, but more specific to the topic of this
particular video, I think the first half of that quote
can really help you to build the correct mindset
for going into college.
We are kind of in the back to school season right now
and I've been getting a lot of questions, via email,
via Reddit, via Twitter from people who are justifiably
worried about what college holds.
They've been told that the workloads are insane,
and there's just a lot of uncertainty and things that they
don't know about and a lot of people feel like they can't
handle what college is going to dump on them.
And I want to tell you, that yes you can handle it,
and you're gonna have a much better chance of handling it
in the best possible way if you set your mindset right.
So let me dispel a myth for you really quickly.
There was actually a survey done of college students
recently that found that 60% of students felt that they
were emotionally unprepared for college and more than 50%
felt they were stressed either most or all the time.
And honestly, these are worrying statistics and they're
not good and I'm hoping the content on this channel can
help, in some small way to bring those numbers down as
time goes on.
But there is a silver lining to those statistics and that
is the realization that you are not alone if you are
uncertain or stressed or afraid about college.
I'm 25 now, I've been out of college for three years
and I can tell you this "secret" of sorts, and that is that
nobody knows what they're doing.
We're all basically just making things up as we go along,
we're adopting models and best practices to hopefully
get the outcome we want but nobody knows what they're doing.
So the game is basically to appear to know what you're doing
and to make the best educated guesses that you can, and the
people who play that game best are the ones who constantly
evaluate their choices and the results of their actions and
where they're going.
But also the ones who have learned to react to things and
to adopt the correct attitude, and to accept help and to
seek out help when they need it.
And honestly college is a huge concentrated ball of help and
resources and people who are really invested
in your success.
So going to college with a mindset that you are going to do
as best as you can, but also you're going to adapt to things
that you can't predict right now.
And honestly that's good because that's the whole point of
growth, and in pursuing new opportunities.
If you know exactly what was coming, then it wouldn't be
interesting, right?
You're going to college because you're going to
find new horizons, basically.
And when you run into something that you can't deal with
on your own be willing to seek out help.
College has a ton of help for you to seek out.
For one, there are academic advisors, there are academic
success centers with tutors you can get hooked up with.
But, number two, if you're living in the dorms,
get to know your R.A.
I was actually an R.A. once, during my junior year and
let me tell you we went through intensive and extensive
training to basically be able to answer every question
a student might have in any area of your life.
And even if we didn't know the answer ourselves, each of
us had a huge binder in our dorm room with lots of on campus
resources and at the very least, we would be able to point
a student in the right direction for any problem.
So, get to know your R.A.
Now, of course there is a lot more you can do beyond just
being willing to accept help and one of those things is
preparing yourself for everything that college is going to
throw at you by reading books and listening to podcasts
that have been made to help you out.
This is actually what I did when I was a high school student
I went down to my local library and I read every single
college prep book they had on the shelf including one that
I still personally own which is, "How to Win at College"
by Cal Newport and I think this is a great book.
I also wrote a book on how to earn better grades so that
might be helpful and a few weeks ago my friend Mart and I
did an entire podcast series called "The Path to College".
Now the first episode was about how to get into college,
the second one was about how to pay for it, but
the third one was a much more holistic look at everything
your need to learn to be able to take on college.
It was basically the episode about becoming college ready.
So if you want a lot more detail on this whole process of
becoming college ready, you can click the annotation on
the screen right now, or the link in the description
below, but hopefully this particular video just helped
to ease your nerves a little bit if
you are still worried about college.
And helped you to set your mindset in a
very positive and productive way.
Now before I leave you guys I did want to mention one more
thing and that is that we just launched
a new page on College Info Geek called
"The Ultimate College Packing Guide" so if you're
still wondering what all you should bring to college,
this is our attempt at creating a comprehensive resource
that should answer that question for you.
And right now it's totally V 1.0 I still have a lot of
features to add but I wanted to get it up as earlier as I
possibly could so you guys could make use of it.
So once again, cards on the screen if you wanna check it
out and there's a link down in the description below.
That is all I've got for this particular video, so hopefully
you guys enjoyed it and if you did you can leave a Like
