What Matters to You and Why?


Looking for ideas to consider for my new school’s admissions process I came up with this Forbes article that discusses the Stanford’s Business School 750 word essay. It was not the essay (a typical requirement) but actually the questions asked to be answered what I found great: What matters the most to you? And, Why? I think these questions ought to be answered and written by every young person. Reflections like these may be helpful in deciding career pathways, leveraging strengths and addressing opportunities for improvement, not only in career but also in life. I believe that this essay is also a very simple way for others to learn about you. And, as I have learned by experience, knowing and accepting yourself and others is the foundation of all relationships.

This is a promise: I will write my own 750 word essay in the next few days and post it in my blog!
