You can observe a lot by watching

College dormitory corner room
This open-windowed corner dorm room caught my eye from the dining hall last night. The higher (3rd floor) view and the rare, additional window make it a prized location for an over-focused student. Th fact that you gain (unauthorized) roof access is also appealing for the right college student.

You can observe a lot by watching.

Watching is more difficult, and perhaps dormant when our devices supersede our desire to grow and interact with our surroundings.

From my experience, college is the single most important opportunity to interact with your life.

Why?

Because you only cross this threshold between teenage years and early twenties once, and then it’s gone forever.

In the back of your mind

1-10 written on a post-it note
On a 10 scale with 10 as high, how much truth do you want today?

In the back of your mind, be preparing for living in a nursing home.

What?

Not joking.

All the cleaning and purging: recycling, donating, and trashing – all of it is highly motivating, for me, because i’m preparing for worst-case scenario – a nursing home.

i have lived in an assisted-living facility for about 2-3 weeks a year for four years. Simultaneously on these numerous multi-night stays, i spent many hours in the adjacent 24-hour nursing care facility.

You get a small medical bed, a small closet, and half a room. You may or may not have a one-toilet bathroom with no shower in your room, if you are mobile enough to use it independently.

What you can do with half a single nursing home room is sparse at best.

Bottom line, you won’t have much room.

Start downsizing your non-essentials.

If you like to travel and like to travel light, this is the same concept.

Give Kids The World.

It serves an incredible mission.

Don’t forget, parents with non-terminally ill children, you should be giving your kids the world too.
