Manufacturer Description

The transition from high school to college or to living life as an adult can not only be scary, it can also be a rude awakening. For most kids, high school had many upsides and few downs, but college and university life are way different. Here, no one knows your name or your past accomplishments. While you were once a big fish in a small pond, you are now the tiniest fish in an ocean of people. How do you make it work? Is a large university, small college, community college, or career training the right path for you? This Is Chess Not Checkers is here to help. With anecdotes from the author’s own life, he provides insight for the graduating high schooler, the college freshmen, parents, and those entering the workforce. Full of wisdom plucked from real life students from all walks of life. It all begins with taking ownership of your education and managing your vision of yourself. If you are living life unintentional and reactionary; waiting for something to happen to make your next move, it could be like playing checkers. What if your educational/life goals were strategically planned and your decisions were calculated from the beginning, middle and end of school like a chess player employing strategies for the open, middle, and end of a match, how successful would you be in high school, the transition to college or into adulthood? Remember, in life, This Is Chess Not Checkers!”
