I have no idea what’s after college. Europe, a career, marriage and kids…? Who knows? I know I’m not ready for marriage right now and I’d love to go to Europe sometime soon, but no plans have been made.
Right now, it’s focus, focus, focus on school and get it done! Also, paying my bills to get out of debt and to move out asap.
I think short term goals are more effective. That way you seemingly get things done and aren’t discouraged by not quickly completing a goal you really want.
