Although having given a lot of time to finish my work, I still do it at last minute. It has often resulted in very “so-so” quality of the work, which, in turn, constituted my average grades. It is a bad habit that I need to stop doing; otherwise I might find myself struggling or being told off frequently in the workplace. Discussing with classmates and friends, in my opinion, is the good way to learn. Associating with other people would give you a psychological boost to think more and to generate more ideas.
I seem to learn better when I constantly read over the material I am studying. This allows the material to constantly be running in my mind. I am a person who will read or hear something and it usually sticks with me. I really haven 't had to study for long periods of time, because I usually remember the topic of what were being tested on pretty easily. I have also learned that I am more of a hands on person.
Seeing my friends progressing with their careers only pushes me to figure out my career plans. I want to find out more careers that I would enjoy. I plan to do research on the careers that I am interested in, talk to advisors, and use the career center resources to my advantage. I expect to leave this class having a clear idea on my career and set future goals to accomplish. 2.Analysis I have learned that I value having a family as much as having a secure job.
Joining a student organization related with finance will also increase my five practices of exemplary leadership, especially the area of inspiring others expressed in The Student Leadership Challenge book. Another short term goal of mine is to increase my activity and participate more in each of my class discussions this semester. I want to enable myself to feel comfortable talking in front of my classes that are full with my peers. Down the road I will need the skills to talk to groups of my peers in order to accomplish my other goals, and I feel that talking in front of my classes is a necessary building block. This is a quality goal for me because it will force me to step outside my comfort zone and grow as a person, the only person that is preventing me from accomplishing this goal is myself.
I also have a need to be correct. I have always prided myself in being able to have the right answers so I would be seen as an intelligent individual. I will manage this need with clients by going through my own personal growth and coming to the realization that my clients are not coming to me to hear that I am right and they are wrong especially when it comes to another’s life and mental health. I will also be cautious of what I disclose to my
I am realizing it is not fair for him or to myself to continue ignore my actions. I have also realized how much easier it is to communicate with each other when our moods are not effected by external factors. As I evaluate my development throughout the semester I am pleased with the current results, and with overall achievement. I feel we have to change together, and that is my true goal. I will continue to work on reactions and perceptions because I am aware that can cause great amounts of stress.
My curious mind has me talking a lot, but I don't think of that as a negative thing but more of a positive aspect. I always manage to smile in tough situations and look straight ahead instead of regretting on things I could've done. My self-determination is my best trait in my opinion and others... ... middle of paper ... ...of now, is the same. I am consistent with my test scores and assignment grades even if I struggle in a class. I can honestly say math is not my best subject since I constantly went in the morning or after school to receive help from my teacher but it paid off when I saw my grade.
My philosophy will be constantly changing as new ideas and techniques are introduced to me. In the end, I believe it is most important to make a positive impact on the children. I will strive to be all I can for my students and try to make their time with me as wonderful as possible. As I enter the wonderful field of teaching I will constantly remind myself of this quote, “They may forget what you said but they will never forget how you made them feel." - Carol Buchner
This doesn’t relate to interpersonal communication but I have confidence now. Talking alone used to be a chore for me. Now I have the means to actually carry out a conversation. This class has been a ray of positivity for my soul. I will continue working on my weaknesses but I am also ready to go out there and put what I have learned to good
I have a lot of things going on in my life. Two jobs, college, taking care of a family, which is all important but I always can’t get overwhelmed and forget what I’m trying to accomplish. Realistic Adapting to change I find is worthwhile in my eyes. I can see myself grow from what I learn and see by working on myself and change the way I use to think about the word change. I’m discovering that change is good for everyone, it breaks up the normal grove that everyone is in making the discover and learn how to adapt to change.
