Once the towns had food surpluses, not all civilians had to be farmers, so they branched out and did other things. They discovered new technologies, mathematics and writing, and took those and used them to their advantages and made careers out of them. Some people became artisans, scholars, artists and traders. After people had found jobs and could provide for themselves, organized religions began to develop. Places of worship, priesthood and taxes became an important part in these peoples every day lives.
If people did not have grit, they would be give up on their goals very easily, and they would not better the society because of it; it is because humans have grit that we have become this advanced of a species. In conclusion, grit, to me, means persevering and following your passion for long-term goals no matter how laborious it is; grit can be connected in my personal life, the arts such as the movie, The Karate Kid, and the world around me including real-world individuals such as Elie Wiesel. Have you ever wondered what would happen if you hadn’t given up on that long-term goal? You could have bettered society or at least bettered yourself. Have you ever wondered what life would be like if Edison or Wiesel had given up?
As technological advances continue to surpass what anyone could have imagined in the 1950s, we continue to feel pressed for time. Despite technological advances that have saved time, members of our society have taken that time and applied it to additional tasks, aiming to achieve more with each second of time they can spare elsewhere. While multitasking has become integrated into the American lifestyle and a normal part of everyday life especially for Millennia's and Gen Z, and something that many think increases productivity, some studies find that multitasking actually causes people to lose focus and ultimately achieve far less than they would if they otherwise focused on one task at a time. In the New York Times article, “Multitasking Can Make You Lose … Um … Focus” by Alina Tugend, Tugend argues that multitasking doesn’t make people more productive but rather, causes them to lose focus on one task due to continuously shifting focus.
I must participate more in class. I will raise my hand when I know the answer and stop being as shy as I am right now. Opportunities are being wasted when I don’t raise my hand. I can share the information I have when the opportunity is available. Participation is a great thing to learn at an early age, because when you get older it’s harder to get used to it.
Past research has been done but both are up, and down different stories told that some people are happy or sad, but I think it juts depends on the person and what do they make their life about. People have spiritual values they need to have to live a good life and always see the good side of things to be happy. Materialism and happiness, it shows that people could be happy with money with buying new things they haven’t had before. It will have more associate more happiness with martial purchases and the person with lower expensive things could feel less worthy and try to reach the same level in the future, but it is an endless cycle of tying to reach money that leads to happiness at the end. Im a big fan of buying new things not many people have discovered or have to feel a way of happiness.
In this generation we are often pushed in extrinsic motivation due to material success and recognition in the society. We always end up comparing what others have and we have such as status, grade, salary etc. I think first a person should get intrinsic motivation over extrinsic motivation because earning something without fulfillment in your life is useless. We always need to keep a balance between extrinsic and intrinsic motivation so that other one doesn’t take control over your life. Always remember that money can’t buy happiness without earning it with something we loved or
More and more research comes out daily, giving us a new definition of happiness, or a new way to be happy. We want to be happy, but we can't because we don't know what it is. Happiness is a concept that has led to thoughtless society. “Happiness is a folk notion employed by laypersons who have various practical interested in the matter.” We've been told we want it so others can profit, however, if we turn to our other emotions and learned how to use them and understand them, our world would once again begin
By manipulating gene, there is fear that it may lead to the new formation of an unknown virus, which we don’t know yet. Our natural ecosystem is consistently changing due to climatic change, direct impact of population and pollution. To develop a bio based economy, we should use bio resources so as to contribute to sustainable industrial development. By modifying biological organism, enzymes from plants & animals and naturally microorganism are used to stimulate chemical reaction with high efficiency to develop diverse bio products that are harmless to the environment. An example is bio degradable plastic
Moreover, they require a flexible workplace and enjoy freedom and autonomy. While baby boomers prefer a more rigid and work-centric approach in workplace, generation X thrive on challenges, diversity and creative input. Generation Y on the other hand are excellent multi taskers. However they don’t tend to stay in one job for a long time. Their major weakness is that they focus on their own rewards and promotions due to which other generations consider them arrogant and unethical.
Older generations believe that a job is for lifetime, while the newer think of jobs as an opportunity to develop more skills, therefore they may change jobs frequently. In addition, flexible work is more important for younger generations, but research has shown that the desire for flexibility in employees close to retirement age may rise again. According to the young people of Generation Y and to some extent Generation X, there are less empirical studies about the characteristics of their behavior in the workplace and understand the differences in the behavior with the old generation. This problem indicates the value of this research. Furthermore, when we consider the rapid growth of employees belonging to these two generations, we find that composition of the labor force in the near future will be completely changed, and this issue will led to a great impact on the strategy of human resources planning and development in the future organizations.
The book, This Changes Everything: Capitalism vs. the Climate, was written by Naomi Klein in which she talks about climate change and the different roles affecting it. Klein would argue that climate change is a civilizational wake-up call and confronting it is about us changing the world before the world changes by itself in a negative way. This book helps the reader understand that the economy does play a part in climate change and that there are many economical controversies which can shape people’s views on the matter. A lot of people think that the market will save us, but the obsession for profit and growth is digging us in deeper and deeper every day. The need to stop climate change would mean that we must consume less, but being consumers has been such a huge part of peoples’ lives that it is all anyone really knows.
It’s obvious to see that global warming is becoming more and more of an issue. What we don’t know is how much global warming is going to affect us in the future. Some people believe it’s a major issue while other aren’t quite sure if it would even change anything or cause damage. When you look at the statistics though, it’s easy to realize that something, like using renewable resources, must be done to slow down global warming or stop it all together. Over time our planet has become increasingly more industrialized.
(Albom 103)¨ I agree with Morrie every emotion people go through doesn´t last and we have to learn how to detach so we can live our lives happy and how we want to. One time my parents were going through stuff which lead into them getting separated most of the time that would affect me. But then I got over it because life goes on and you have to enjoy the time you have with the people you love. By me doing this I realized I threw myself into different emotions that would benefit me and I changed my life. Another lesson that Morrie
It is a process that takes a lot of commitment from the participants, and it becomes a new way of living. I think that for those that are committed to it, it will pay off in the long run. Before I started on my journey, I would have laughed off the mind-body connection. After all the things that I have learned, I don’t see how anyone can dispute the facts. If we are clouded in our judgment or thoughts, it can throw our whole way of thinking off.
In The Land Ethic by Aldo Leopold, he explores why we have taken over ownership of something that does not belong to us. He states “a land ethic changes the role of Homo sapiens from conqueror of the land community to plain member and citizen of it” (Leopold, course reading package, page 204). Land ethics in relation to oceanic pollution means investigating and reflecting on our decision to flood the planet’s seas with waste and chemicals, changing the living conditions of every species that touches the ocean. There is no doubt that taking advantage of this precious resource is not only immanently damaging, but also morally wrong. Additionally, in What Is Education For?
