What® is and why all students should have their own 10-year plans® provides an online environment where students store, update and revise their responses from the keystone surveys, activities, and exercises in the award-winning Career Choices text and consumable Workbook and Portfolio. This one-of-a-kind online enhancement guides the learner through the proven career decision-making process resulting in students' detailed, quantitative, and meaningful 10-year Career and Education Plans.

While the learner's initial journey through this decision-making process in the 9th grade is key to the development of a personalized and realistic 10-year Career and Education Plan, that initial plan is really just the start.

Life changes us all incrementally, but the day-to-day changes tend to pass unnoticed. Over time the confluence of those incremental changes becomes readily apparent--when we take the time to pause, reflect, and assess ourselves. As the realities of life bump up against our ideals, our goals, and our aspirations, adjustments are often necessary. The truly strategic planner leaves no plan unedited as every plan undergoes periodic reviews, revisions, and refocusing.

The online format of® allows for instant access and easy editing, making this ongoing strategic planning process simple to facilitate.

When the learner is in the habit of reviewing their plan and reconsidering the factors that feed it, they will be in a position to direct the changes in their life rather than simply react to them. The mobile and dynamic nature of® not only facilitates but also encourages this powerful, lifelong process.
