Do You Have a Student Graduating Soon? Are They Ready for the World That Awaits Them?
The perfect gift for any student “in transition” is Habitudes For the Journey. It is created for students graduating from school or college into unknown territory.
The key to preparing tomorrow’s leaders today is all about learning how to navigate transitions.
Life is full of transitions—from middle school to high school; from high school to a college or a job; from college to career. Each transition is an opportunity to establish great habits, make great choices and meet great people…or an opportunity to absolutely fail at this. Some students aren’t able to navigate the changes in their life and they get off track. Eventually they find themselves at a destination they don’t like because they didn’t make the right moves at the crucial times. This discussion guide was designed to prevent that.
At some point in the journey, students will face junctions, and must transition to a new place:
- Freshmen students
- Transfer student
- Seniors preparing to graduate
Habitudes for the Journey helps students:
- Master the transitions from school to college and college to career.
- Create language to talk about real life issues in a safe and authentic way.
- Build students who make wise decisions that keep them in school and out of trouble.
- Capitalize on personal strengths to be career-ready upon graduation.
Habitudes for the Journey is a book of images that reminds a student of the lessons we all must learn as we travel the road of life.
It’s for students in transition. The principles represent how we should think and act during key junctions of our life. It’s another installment in the series of books called, Habitudes: Images That Form Leadership Habits and Attitudes.
It’s designed with first year students in mind. Chapters include images like Tollbooths or Roadblocks, Compass or GPS, Sturdy Guardrails, Windshields and Rearview Mirrors…and more.
Habitudes for the Journey covers these topics:
- Risk taking
- Focus and goals…and more.

This Habitudes book may be my favorite one, since they apply to my life whether I’m leading a team or not. I am recommending them to all the new students on my campus.
