Gwendolyn’s Answer

Every journey has bumps, but starting with small goals will help you build momentum and confidence.


As I was starting college, the idea of getting through a degree program and understanding what to focus on was overwhelming. I broke down that larger goal into smaller ones. First, I needed to understand what were the classes that I was going to be required to take to graduate and how frequently they were offered. That created my list of classes to sign up for in the first two terms. Then I looked at other barriers or requirements to finish: money and budgeting, scheduling, finding course materials etc.


There were bad days or weeks or months as I went through the journey. When those happened, I would take time to remember all the steps I'd taken so far, and then would break down the next overwhelming goal into smaller bite sizes.


You've got this!
