How Taking A Gap Year Could Change Your Life
Updated: Nov 12, 2019
“The only option we’ve allowed you to get to know and discover the world that awaits is for you to read about it in a textbook or listen to a 90-minute lecture. We’re forcing our young people to make decisions about life before we allow them to live life.”
Mark J. Lindquist discusses decision making at the point of finishing school and explains how taking a gap year is just what we need to find ourselves.

“For what it’s worth: it’s never too late or, in my case, too early to be whoever you want to be. There’s no time limit, stop whenever you want. You can change or stay the same, there are no rules to this thing. We can make the best or the worst of it. I hope you make the best of it. And I hope you see things that startle you. I hope you feel things you never felt before. I hope you meet people with a different point of view. I hope you live a life you’re proud of. If you find that you’re not, I hope you have the courage to start all over again.” ― Eric Roth
