These are just my own notes on John Fish’s video called ”3 Lessons for Life After Graduation”. I wrote them for myself, but I realize that someone else might find them valuable as well.
Choose Your Path or a Path Will Choose You
- Everyone worships something, and if you don’t choose your path, you’ll be absorbed by one.
- Defining your path is crucial.
- Choosing your path empowers you to push it in the direction you want to go.
- Outside of school, there are countless paths to follow, so you have to choose.
- Not choosing your path will not lead to fulfillment.
How to Choose a Path?
- Consider where you’re coming from.
- Consider what you value and what’s non-negotiable for you.
- Find activities that align with those values.
- Consider where you want to be in the future and in the next 5 years.
- Consider where you are today, including your skills and resources.
- Connect those lines to find your path.
Community is Hard to Find
- In school you have many communities, but after school, it all goes away.
- John fixed this by having brunch every week with friends.
- People are craving community, more chance they will respond to your invite.
Be Your Own Best Friend
- If anyone else talked to me the way I talk to myself, I wouldn’t allow it, and I’d cut them out of my life.
- I can choose what my voice says.
- To apply this to your life, recognize that conversation and your voice.
- Intervene it and try to talk to yourself like a friend.
- The new voice aka. the good one (in the 3rd person) will become the default way.
