LEARNING THE SKILLS YOU NEED TO SUCCEED TODAY AND TOMORROW
Your life is full. You’re starting a new semester, perhaps even beginning your college career, and you’re feeling pulled in many directions. Why take time to read this introduction?
We have lightheartedly offered our top 10 reasons on the previous page, but the real importance of this section is no joking matter. Its purpose, and that of the entire text, is to help you learn principles, strategies, and skills for success that will serve you not only in this course but also in your career and your life. Whether you learn them is up to you. Learning them won’t guarantee success, but not learning them well, you get the picture.
This is an exciting and challenging time. Success in any venture comes from understanding basic principles and knowing how to apply them effectively. What you learn now could help you be a success for the rest of your life. Begin applying these skills now to gain an edge on the competition. READ THIS SECTION BEFORE YOUR FIRST CLASS and make a great first impression! Good luck. We wish you the best.
