I came across an interesting quote the other day and it really hit home to me. The quote was "Nobody who buys a drill really wants a drill. Rather, they want the end result, i.e., a hole. If you want to sell drills, you should deliver information about making holes."

I often come across students who lose sight of that end result (i.e., finishing school) because of burn-out, financial stress, or life getting in the way. The problem is that the act of graduating college is not the end goal. The end goal is achieving those factors that motivated you to attend college in the first place. Attending and graduating college is merely the vehicle to get you to the financial, social, or personal reasons that drove you to pursue additional education.

If you are feeling stressed right now or like you’re losing sight of the end result, let me identify some of those "holes" for you.
