The 1st June tells me that not only is it the first day of winter, but that the year is flying by. I avoid the temptation to look back at the things I haven’t done – and wish I had. Or to dwell too much on the things I could have done better – if only there had been more .... time, perhaps? Instead, I choose to look forward – and I want to encourage you to do the same thing.
Its a clichéd phrase I know, but apart from death and taxes there are no certainties in this life. If you’re a Year 10 student or a senior secondary student, you’re unlikely to be thinking too much about either of these, but almost certainly, the prospect of what you are going to do with your life after leaving school is likely to have already dawned.
Looking forward, perhaps you can see the many opportunities that stretch out before you. Perhaps you ask yourself the question: What do I need to do to keep these opportunities open? To ensure that I have choice?
