One point well taken is the encouragement to send handwritten thank-you notes to anyone who does a kindness for you or spends time with you. Recently, one of my daughters wrote a thank-you note to a donor of one her college scholarships. This gentleman was so moved by her note that he and his wife asked to meet her. Her note was so kind and gracious that he was moved to tears. He shared that they had given to six students that year, but she was the only one that had written a thank-you note. How shocking! While thank-you notes were a well mannered behavior that my children practiced from childhood, this experience proved to reinforce the immense importance of expressing gratitude in a hand written note.
With nearly 45% of college graduates moving back home, the facts indicate that today's graduates are not succeeding in "adulting" from either a personal or a professional standpoint. This book can help with practical ideas to launch high schoolers to college as well as college students into successful careers.
