  17. Choosing & Prioritizing JUPAS Choices

  18. Choose the mountain you want to climb. Don’t be influenced by what other people say: “that one’s prettier” or “that one looks easier”. You are going to put a lot of energy and enthusiasm into achieving your objective, and you are the only person responsible for your choice, so be quite sure about what you are doing. “Like the Flowing River” Paulo Coelho (2006)

  19. … … … Two roads diverged in a wood, and I - I took the one less traveled by, And that has made all the difference. “The Road Not Taken” Robert Frost

  20. Find out how to reach the mountain. Often you can see the mountain in the distance – beautiful, interesting, full of challenges. However, … what seems clear on the map is far more complicated in reality… try all the paths and tracks until, one day, you find yourself before the peak … “Like the Flowing River” Paulo Coelho (2006)
