When You’re 18. Again.

I’ve been asked to speak to a couple hundred high school seniors tomorrow morning with the requested subject matter along the lines of “What Can You Expect From Here On Out?” Good question, right?

I sat in that exact gymnasium 35 years ago and wondered the same thing. We’ve all been there. Some of us attended college, others jumped right into the marketplace or joined the service. It can be an exciting time, but also a daunting stage of life.

I hope to give them a sense of confidence and freedom as they move on from their friendly confines.

I’m curious… what would YOU want to tell your 18 year-old self, knowing what you now know? What bit of advice or encouragement would you give? Please leave a Comment below … I just might steal your material. 

Wish me luck. (140 words)
