Prioritizing my time is a task that I need to work on, turning things on time and keeping up to date with assignments is difficult. I usually procrastinate and leave things for the last-minute, and causes my work to be less effective than what I can carry out. Studying for tests is a struggle, because I get distracted easily and get frustrated with all the amount of work ,so I leave the work for later. Some management strategies I will use, are breaking up large project into pieces and when I have a difficult time getting started I will do the easiest task first. I prioritize my life with most important to least important.
Selecting to maximize my motivation and performance in a teamwork environment (Carpenter & Erdogan, 2012) I must stay focus to repair aspects of my weaknesses. Selflessness is main weaknesses.

In order to achieve this, I should read relevant literature, learn from the examples of great leaders and develop my strategies of effective organization and leadership.
Personal Essay This is my first semester in college. Being a new college student, I was very nervous about how college life went about and how I would manage school, work, and raising my child. Thankfully, this class is required for incoming students, or else I never would have thought to take it. Throughout this semester, I have learned more about myself, what I truly value, my personality type, my multiple intelligences, my learning style, and how these are all correlated to my long- term career goal. Through the course of the semester, I have learned how to manage my time in a wise, and well- organized manner.

Looking back throughout this semester our class has had many interesting discussions which forced our class to think critically. One that I particularly remember is our discussion on the theme of identity between “Mother Tongue” by Amy Tan and “Two Ways to Belong in America” by Bharati Mukherjee. By being assigned these essays to annotate and read before a discussion, I was able to analyze, develop questions, and grasp a basic level of the text. However, when gathering with my peers I was able to summarize, synthesize, and further analyze the message of the two texts. Because of the discussions, I strengthened my critical thinking to develop a greater theme of the text which, in this case, was that we chose our identity and there is nothing wrong with being simple.
