1.1 Introduction

Being unsure of what you want to do in life, or what you want to study, is not unusual. How to deal with the changes that we want in our lives can be more challenging. You might want to be clearer about what you want to do with your life, or what you want to study. You might also be interested in to meet the challenges that life keeps throwing your way.
