The Importance of Setting Goals
Setting goals is the most important thing you can do in your life. Without goal's you are going to have no direction, no ambition to be successful, no drive to stay in school, and trouble finding a career that will provide for you. Without these three things, achieving your goals is going to be one of the toughest tasks in the years to come.

To be honest I really don’t read any particular publications about engineering but I never really have a chance to. Also I really don’t know where I could get a publications or articles about engineering. The extracurricular activities that I participate in are golf. To be honest I do not do any volunteer work but I do plan to get some hours before I graduate. I think volunteering is good for engineers because that will help them develop good people skills. So in the end I think that volunteering will help future engineers with there people skills.
As of right now I have high expectations for engineering. I feel that engineering will be a great field for me and I will have a great career. But I feel that at times is going to be very hard and challenging but I believe that in the end it will all be worth it.
