What is the best advice for someone just graduating from college?

This has been on my mind lately since I'm about graduate very soon. I was wondering about what type of advice would you give anybody just getting out of college? Think back to when you first recieved your degree, what would you have may done differently or better?

First of all, congratulations! Well, from experience, the advice I would like to give you would be that while it's nice to enjoy this time, it's not the end of things. It's not the time to rest on your laurels. Rather it's more of a beginning of another journey in your life. If you've given 100% during your schooling, now you'd have to give more than that to survive the real world. It's going to be tough out there, but if you've got guts and patience, you will get through. And don't stop learning. There are so many things to learn outside school. Absorb what you can and use it to your advantage, increase your skills and knowledge. Congratulations and good luck!

I really appreciate your honesty and valuable advice. I already experienced a little taste of the real world and it is tough, but like you said, I should continue to learn and I will definately try to that everyday! Thanks for your response and the encouragement.
