Learning to make a specific plan for my daily tasks and make a to-do list to make my day as productive as possible is something very helpful which was advised to me by the instructor of this lecture Mr. Irfan. What I mean by specific is that it is time-specific and nature-specific. In addition, I have always heard of the term SMART but I did not give it my attention because I thought it would be just like many other useless methods of time management. However, the way this lecture illustrated this term or method is very unique and has helped me in implementing this method in my daily life. For instance, a goal should be time-based, for years I used to set goals or tasks and never put a deadline or timeframe, so I keep procrastinating until I lose track of time and eventually finishing the task in as imperfect way or not finishing it at all.
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.
College should not be taken lightly and The first new skill I learned was how to write a college level paper. When you first start a college class as a junior in high school it can be intimidating but in the end it turns out to be a great learning opportunity. The first and a major skill that is required for taking a college reading and writing class is how to write
I will need to be diligent in my courses to make sure I retain the information not only to pass the course but to lead a successful career. I will also need to prioritize efficiently to make sure I’ve completed my assignments before going to the movies and things less important than my education. One thing I will need to work on is staying focused and concentrating on one thing at a time. I have a bad habit of losing interest in things and trying to jump to the next thing. So it will be important for me to stay mindful of that as I further my education.
Where as role balance was defined as satisfactory fulfillment of all valued roles (Backman, 2010). It is extremely hard to balance all of my present roles and the occupations that go along with them. As I mentioned before having the extremely valuable roles of being a student and friend and family member can create a role conflict. In order to try and remedy this situation I set aside time to complete the activities associated with each
You have to have all your thoughts organized and make sure you don’t get off tangent. The hardest part for me is organizing my thoughts and keeping on tangent. It’s extremely hard for me to stay on one point. The easiest part for me for the first writing draft was picking the topic. You should write about something that you want to write about.
However, I did learn through my years of schooling that being able to read is key to success in any field of employment. I had a personal drive to be able to understand what I am reading, no matter what it may be such as an article in a magazine, a memo from supervisors or policy and procedures of a company. In my spare time, I would read as much as I could to learn new words. Since I come across words every day that are spoken to me that is not understood, I would research the words to better understand what was being discussed. Still to this day, it has become a habit of mine to read any random piece of writing to ensure my understanding continues to grow.
After working a few different places and being laid off I soon decided it was time to look toward my future. I returned to Highline Community College I did not know what I wanted to do after school but was more focused on each class and who I could learn. Towards the end of my time at Highline I took an introduction class to psychology, I feel in love with the idea of being able to help people. I choose Central Washington University’s psychology program to receive my Bachelor’s degree. During my senior year while attending Central Washington University I narrowed down what Master’s program what wanted to enroll in to help with the career that I want to have.
When the time came to actually do it, I think I was pretty successful. I physically marked my planner to assure I wouldn’t forget and I made sure that the actual work I had to do wasn’t too lengthy since I split my work up over multiple days. My problem wasn’t the actual work itself, but rather starting it in the first place. I’d often procrastinate and put it off
By missing out on fixing these mistakes and seeking help from you, I continued to demonstrate this lack of explanation in multiple other essays and formatives. If I had seeked guidance from you as a teacher, I could’ve brought my grade up to an A--but more importantly, could have become more flexible as a writer. When I continue making the same mistakes over and over again, it can be easy to stay the same when help is not reached. Because of this, I have made it my goal to become more self-aware as a student in the future, so something like this does not happen again. As for the place that I am at now in terms of self-awareness, I feel that my writing will be greatly
Although I still have some anxiety, because I still have a lot to learn. I will now be more organized, and read everything more closely. I feel like I need to slow down and be more confident in what I am doing. I will make more use of the tools I have, but first of all before I began I will start with a prayer. The fear I had about it being a long time since I was in school was confirmed.
A person needs to evolve as life moves on. Every day, in our life we learn new things, from school, friends and by ourselves. Take an example of me, my transformative educational experience had thought me skills that I can use for my rest of my life career. However, Frank Bruni said in his statement that “if a person wants to do something in his life, then he/she can start with little experience”. Throughout the year, I gain more knowledge of the world we live in and become aware of my career.
When I attended the region 2 meeting I learned tons of new things. I learned we needed to make goals in life or we won’t accomplish much and life is long, but goes by fast, so we need to make the most of it. There I got to learn about FCCLA, meet new people, learn new things, and even get out of school for the day.
I practice this within my everyday work life as well as balancing these principal responsibilities within my home life as well. I delegate myself task on a daily basis to avoid missing deadlines. Additionally, using a schedule is another good way of how I organize my time. Apart from managing my organizational skills, I also have to manage my time diligently throughout the day. This would include being on time for work, going to scheduled lunch and breaks on time as well as returning from them.
