Ever look through your old high school yearbooks? Me neither.
Yearbooks are big, heavy, oversized books which you just can’t get rid of. They sit in your garage or attic or storage unit. Usually collecting dust until a few days before your high school reunion.
My class had 675 graduates. Not too many attend the reunions. Yet the yearbook does give us a way to try to remember faces and names. Plus get a few laughs as we read about what the seniors planned for the college years and beyond.
The problem is that most young people have big goals about the future but no plan of action. They want to change the world but have no idea how get started.
P.J. O’Rourke once said, “Everybody wants to save the world but nobody wants to help mom with the dishes.”
Funny but so true. I recommend trying to do both.
Many millennials are catching on to the college debt scam. The madness of trying to save the world while buried under $100,000 of student loans. Not likely.
Dr. Gary North talks to high school graduates about how to plan for and achieve a meaningful life.
