Have you ever heard about the 'Butterfly Effect' and the 'Bullwhip Effect(Whiplash)'?
The 'Butterfly Effect' means that a small change at one place in a deterministic nonlinear system can result in large differences at a later state.
Similarly, the 'Bullwhip Effect' refers to a trend of larger and larger outcomes in response to changes in demand.
Both the 'Butterfly Effect' and the 'Bullwhip Effect' commonly mean thai a small action in the present may cause significant consequences in the future.
The first class of the second semester began on September 3. Now we are on half-way through 2012. You will have plan of your own and put that plan into practice. But as most people do, you will find yourself idling away. if so, you'd better chew on your future.
We need to apply the cause-and-effect analogy mentioned above to our university lives. Unless you do your best this semester, you may regret it before long. That's why you need to plan out your future cautiously.
People often say that university days are the best part of our lives. Nobody will refute that. But, you should not waste away your time and energy without taking a decisive action. If you squander golden opportunities, you are doomed to fail. Nothing is guaranteed in the future. So, my final words are this: Carpe Diem. If you want to shape your future, you need to confront and enjoy the present. The present is a stepping stone leading to the future. Just follow your way!
