Personal Legends: beginning the I Am Project.

 

Begin brainstorming about career paths that interest you, trying to keep your ideas broad. Talk to your parents about what they think of their chosen career paths. Think about whether those interest you. Why or why not? Come prepared to discuss.

 

Start reading Crucial Conversations, a summary about how to discuss touchy issues in a professional, productive, and satisfying way. You will need to have this read by next Monday (and fresh in your mind.) I recommend reading 1 page per day and then reviewing the entire article Sunday night. Taking notes and googling unfamiliar terms as you read will help you process the article. We will use these ideals in discussions of Nickel and Dimed as well as planning our Europe trip, among other things.
