Dreams get smaller; but start big!
Some of the achievements are quite spectacular and speak to an apparent self confidence that is astounding. Indeed, my grumpy initial reaction was "such arrogance - they'll be lucky to find a job of any kind if they even get a degree".
But then I thought again.
If university students don't dream big who will?
Yes over time our dreams shrink - the slings and arrows of daily living make it clear that the adults we became won't, say, bring peace to Afghanistan - but if youth doesn't even try then peace will never come.
So yes, dream big and try to achieve those dreams. Plenty of time to scale back later.
