Finding the right career is a major decision in a person’s life. Some have come to this decision simply by trial and error, and others have entered their career by setting goals, getting encouragement from others and making the right choices. Motivation and encouragement are prime to achieving these goals. This section is my way of taking this very large and difficult problem and creating a simple solution using facts, setting goals, encouraging choices and developing a plan of action to discover and achieve your desired career.

The following two movies illustrate a career in graphics from the year 1963 and a present day career in graphics, 2014. It takes talent, skill, persistence, and dedication to achieve your career goals. Best Careers for You

“Don't judge me by my past; I don't live there anymore.

How to Memorize Anything Quickly

8 tips for studyingsmarter. The majority of students study by re-reading notes and textbooks — but the psychologists' research,both in lab experiments and of actual students in classes, shows thisis a terrible way to learn material.Using active learning strategies — like flashcards, diagramming, and quizzing yourself — is much more effective, as is spacing out studying over time and mixing different topics together.
