Life after school is a beautiful experience. You need to be mentally ready before you leave the university.
Here are a list of my top six lessons:
- Emotional intelligence:
I wish I had explored this topic a lot more. For me I was probably a bit lucky because I served in different capacity but it sure could have been better.
- Positive Intelligence:
The world can be brutal, you need to be smart enough to know what really worth your time. We need a balance of mental strength and a negativity resistant worn on your Amygdala.
You can refer to the book- Positive intelligence by Shirzad Chamine
- Social life: Learn to be social, Learn how to start conversations better. University of Ibadan wasn’t such a social place for me. It was all booky! But to survive, I have had to learn.
- Relationships: Build relationships. Not just classmates relationships. Build quality relationships.
- Results not mental strengths are what matters.
- Find a way to stretch your creativity, its too important.
