How to help your child see the future of their education – when they can’t see the future of their education.
Hamza Khan - March 10th, 2022
Did you know that chess grandmasters can think ~15 moves ahead? They literally visualize the future and think of the steps that would and wouldn’t work to win.
Do you think about your child’s education that way?
Most families don’t and here’s what it costs them:
- Their friends get an admissions offer- and your child is left staring at an empty inbox
- Their friends are sitting on a university campus and your child is stuck at home
- Their friends are posting about going off to school and your child is feeling that they are missing out
What if I told you this was all avoidable?
And all it takes is to plan a few steps ahead. And you don’t even need to think 15 moves ahead like a chessmaster- just 2 or 3 will do.
Let’s be practical. Take your child through an exercise that hundreds of our most successful students use to accomplish their goals. It’s called the SMART framework.
- Specific: Be detail-oriented with your goal.
- Measurable: Track the goal using numbers. Leave it objective, not subjective
- Actionable: Work towards a goal that is challenging but doable
- Realistic: Be honest with yourself. Set targets that you are ~70% confident you can accomplish
- Time-bound: Give yourself a deadline. I want to accomplish _______ by August 12, 2050
Example: I save $10,000 for my degree by September 12
