So we received a few e-mails from readers asking about updates, and yes… it’s been a while since our last post!
We hope all you Class of 2008′ers are enjoying your summer. Finally, School’s out! (unless you’re doing summer school that is). Whether you’re traveling, starting a new job, or just kicking back for a lil bit enjoy your summer before it passes!
With that said, we did run into an interesting article from ZenHabits.net. The article focuses on time management and getting more things done. We thought some readers might find this particularly of interest because coming out of college and post-graduation… things can be a little tricky to prioritize and adapt to a new lifestyle. The article, How to Get a Lot Done – 7 Tips to Achieve More is a great read and we’d highly recommend it!
One particular point struck out the most to us:
3. Work Smart
If you only had a year left to do the things on your lists, would you be satisfied with what you’re spending your time on today?
We believe this may be one of the greatest bits of information any senior coming out from graduation can take in. While in school it’s so easy to prioritize tasks, homework, and responsibilities (be it academic or social). Yet in the ‘real world’ this becomes more difficult when working for “the man.”
Best of luck in the road you choose!

We just wanted to take this time to really thank all of our customers for making this such a successful graduation season for us! Without you, we really wouldn’t be here. We’re also really happy to announce (*knock on wood) that this season, we have had 0 missed deadlines and had 0 late deliveries with our graduation stoles.
We wish you all the best with the career paths you choose and hope you enjoy your summer!
With that said, we recently found a few interesting posts around the internet. Most specifically there was one post written specifically for graduating seniors at the GetRichSlowly Blog, “Life After School: Advice for New Graduates.” The post is filled with great tidbits of information, from financial advice to career and time management tips. Not too long of a read, and definitely worth a look.
One point that we particularly liked was:
Treat your time as an investment. It’s more important to invest your time wisely than to invest your money wisely.
Time is such an important factor in the “real world” because your life isn’t dictated by term papers and finals. It will be a big adjustment as you will see, and if you are taking on a 9-to-5 job, no doubt the amount of free time you have to hang out with friends will drop. Spend it wisely and enjoy! Need some motivation for time management? Check out the 4-Hour Workweek.
Besides that, in case you are afraid your graduation speaker will be boring, check out Graduation Wisdom for some inspirational graduation speeches and did you know Barack Obama will be giving a speech at Wesleyan?!
