Description

An essential guide to tackling what students, families, and educators can do now to cut through stress and performance pressure, and find a path to purpose.

Today’s college-bound kids are stressed, anxious, and navigating demands in their lives unimaginable to a previous generation. They’re performance machines, hitting the benchmarks they’re “supposed” to in order to reach the next tier of a relentless ladder. Then, their mental and physical exhaustion carries over right into first jobs. What have traditionally been considered the best years of life have become the beaten-down years of life.

Belle Liang and Timothy Klein devote their careers both to counseling individual students and to cutting through the daily pressures to show a better way, a framework, and set of questions to find kids’ “true north”: what really turns them on in life, and how to harness the core qualities that reveal, allowing them to choose a course of study, a college, and a career.

Even the gentlest parents and teachers tend to play into pervasive societal pressure for students to PERFORM. And when we take the foot off the gas, we beg the kids to just figure out what their PASSION is. Neither is a recipe for mental or physical health, or, ironically, for performance or passion. How to Navigate Life shows that successful human beings instead tap into their PURPOSE—the why behind the what and how. Best of all, purpose is a completely translatable quality to every aspect of life, from first jobs to last jobs and everything in between.

An essential guide to tackling what students, families, and educators can do now to cut through stress and performance pressure, and find a path to purpose.

Where was this book when I was in high school?? How to Navigate Life offers some great insight and actionable items for those who are perhaps a bit unmoored in their life plan or who have a goal but aren't quite sure how to get there. The authors provide useful, evidence-based background information on what happiness and success are (and are not) as well as actionable items for nearly anyone, from those just starting out in life to those who are pivoting in life or who just need a refresh on how they approach creating and finding success.

A provocative and insightful book that will no doubt inform strategies and tactics I use to help students learn and succeed. Especially love the focus on helping students cultivate a purpose mindset and think realistically and deliberately about their life goals, interests, values, strengths, and service to the world.
