As you get closer and closer to your senior year of college there are a few things that you need to starting thinking about. One major thing that you need to focus on is your goals during and after your college period. You need to have a plan for your short-term goals, mid-term goals, and long-term goals. Why do we need these goals? Because they keep us on track for something that we wish to accomplish, they motivate us to help us push ourselves to the limit, it’s what keeps us fundamentally on track.

I know it doesn’t sound like an obstacle but it is since some people don’t get along with others and communication could be bad.
