If you don’t maintain a certain Grade Point Average, the school decides they don’t want you as a student anymore.
Georgia Tech IS a difficult school, but I don’t think that was the problem. These students were intelligent or else they wouldn’t have gotten accepted in the first place.
I remember taking a class once in university where we had to learn how to create a “business plan.”
The professor gave us a fictional business idea and we had to theorize what the next few years would look like.
I’ve been exposed to luck my entire life.
Walk into any Asian person’s house and you’ll see all these different items designed to attract luck and shield against bad luck.

Mom: What are you wearing?
Me: Huh? This is my favorite shirt. It’s Bart Simpson.

We all know that setting goals is the fun and easy part, but completing them is a different animal. What’s the missing piece to the puzzle?
In my experience, the most overlooked aspect is measuring your progress.
