For the first half of our course in mediation, we have been looking how people typically make decisions and how a mediator can use certain strategies to help bring people together to make constructive decisions that is beneficial for both parties and minimizes conflict. These themes are laid out and explored deeper in Malcom Gladwell’s novel, Blink: The Power of Thinking Without Thinking. This book focuses on how people make sudden judgments and decisions, while never even consciously aware of these decisions or the factors that influenced their decision-making processes. Gladwell describes this phenomena as an “automatic pilot,” where “the way we work and act and how well we think and act on the spur of the moment are a lot more susceptible to outside influence than we realize.” It is important to note that while these quick assessments come from the unconscious and cannot exactly explored in depth, the author argues that ways do exist to reasonably explain these “blink” decisions.
I wrote this essay because I wanted to know how my grandma's life influences mine, and I wanted my readers to know that even the differences could become one's inspiration and supports. At first, I had a hard time to pick a role model, because I had so many of them that I didn't know which one would be suitable to write about. However, after reading Raymond Carver, Mentor, I thought I could write about people who are close to me. For this reason, I chose my grandma. While I was writing this essay, what’s interesting was I realized that my grandma's life is completely different from mine.
There are also many times when his hands are seen doing things for purely the purpose of destruction, but are in all actuality, doing these thing s in order to help him to achieve his goal of learning and growing. (BS-3) It is when our protagonist meets the final in a series of people who will teach him that the true purpose of hands, and by extension the life of those they are attached to, is revealed. (TS) Within the novel, Ray Bradbury uses symbolism of hands as a way to get the message that the purpose of our lives is to cause growth and change in a society.
This quotes defends my opinion as it is a solidifying fact that myths are functions that teach people how to live under the circumstances that they are in. If people can relate to the myths they can solve anything that is a mystery to them. Not everyone has to comply with religion as I do to find answers as I do but there are many different ways as myths come in different forms in our society. More importantly is what humans get out of these myths, the answer gives satisfaction to those who are lost. Those who choose to seek answers from myths get what they are looking for whether they are enjoying life or doing what they like.

Anna Quindlen’s use of detail, along with imagery and language, paints a picture of her struggle with attaining perfection while in college. Her speech, often pensive and foreboding, warns of the dangers of pursuing perfection and the joy felt when one gives up that inane dream. Quindlen’s details planted from beginning to end of her speech are designed to get a clear message across to her audience: Don’t try to be perfect. This is elaborated upon when she says, “the thing that is. . .really amazing, is giving up on being perfect and beginning the work of becoming yourself”.
While looking back to Part VI in the book and reviewing the essays, I have learned a lot about the life experiences from different kinds of people and how their background influenced their life. The unique stories in this part were all really eye-opening and interesting to read, because you might not knew or noticed what was happening back in the days. People simply do not pay attention to the different lifestyle other individuals might have, they might be ignorant or they don’t understand their lifestyle including their life experiences. A great example is the essay from Mary Brave Bird’s and Richard Erdoes “Civilize Them With A Stick”. Here the author Mary Brave Bird is talking about how her family’s and her own life experience as a Native American was.
I suppose that is exactly the point he was trying to make. In fact, that specific goal of making someone feel something belongs to nearly every writer. Authors tend to portray their views through their works, opening up new ideas in the minds of their readers.
I am not going to say that my shift reports are smooth sailing from now on, I still have a lot of improvement. My brain is always so disorganized so it is going to be awhile before I can do this in a systematic way. My plan for improvement is to keep practicing with my peers on shift reports. I am also lacking confidence in myself, so I need to improve on this. I really need to catch myself before I start putting myself down.
Leadership, as per my understanding, could mean leading others to rediscover themselves by providing guidance, not through what-to-do lists, so they would reach the necessary urge to reach a better state personally and professionally. During Dorsch employment, I have noticed great potentials in my colleague; I convinced him to switch jobs from a drafting person to a civil engineer, by presenting the textbooks and resources needed, guiding him along the transition phase and by presenting, through examples, how easily could be the learning process and transition. Along my career, I lead my colleagues to produce integrated solutions, by creating the urge to know the answers of different what-if scenarios for their solutions; I bring textbooks and tools to convince them; I present examples of what should be done, the benefits of efforts done and the consequences of careless isolated solutions. Not only one colleague now is persuading her dreams by studying post graduate in Netherlands, but also she got an award to be distinguished;

Used numerous times throughout Evidence, questions to the reader give way to the style that Shulz uses when presenting her ideas. “Why is something that is so effortless for a person all but impossible for a machine” (365)? Shulz uses the involvement of the reader to actively engage them in her ideas and causes them to think about other possibilities that are often not thought of. Along with questions, Shulz provides many examples of how an old theory is correct, but soon after Shulz will tell the reader how she feels about the theory. Referred to as the “They Say I Say” method, Gerald Graff and Cathy Birkenstein have written a book based on a method that Shulz uses.
Even write out the stories that go against the new goal( not enough time, expensive gym fee, too busy, etc.). Secondly, you should re-write the story. “Tell the story of the new way of being. Tell the story of the person who appreciates life, and takes time to take care of him/her-self.” Research shows that self-story changing makes a profound change on whether or not a person sticks with and reaches his/her goal from the start.
Artist has often been intrigued with the subject of mythology, particularly Greek mythology. Many paintings, horels, and song have focused on this subject. In the odyssey, by Homer, he tells of Odysseus, a hero who faces many obstacles on his journey home from the Trojan War. One of primary distractions along the way is his encounter with a number of beautiful goddesses, such as calypso is one such goddess , homer tells of how she keeps Odysseus for a long period of the distracting him from returning home to his wife Penelope. Likewise the contemporary musician, Suzanne vega, recounts the story of calypso’s capacity of Odysseus, however homer’s perception is quite different from Vegas.
