Essential life tips accumulated over twenty years of teaching high school and raising my own children, I share these with seniors each year before they head off to college and out into the world.
Some of you may have heard some of the ideas presented here. If so, you're very lucky and rare, but if this material seems new, don't sweat it; it's actually somebody else's fault. No, really! As a young person, this is one time when it's truly not your fault, since advice like this, once common, has fallen from our contemporary core of knowledge passed from one generation to another. The really good news is that you've got this book in front of you and have a lifetime to reap benefits from the wisdom of others who have gone before you.
I've compiled advice from a variety of sources and covering many topics. Some are relatively short and straight to the point, while others require a little more explanation. Some are geared toward the workplace, others toward school, and most toward life in general. In the end, I'm sure you'll find the advice here both practical and beneficial, everything from finding exciting new experiences and saving boatloads of money, to doing better in school and knowing where to find the best breakfast burrito.
