Respond to the following questions using your results from the Life Factors and Personal Attributes Assessments. Each response should be a minimum of 50 words. What did you learn from the results of the Life Factors and Personal Attributes Assessments? In your own words, describe your strengths from these assessments and how they impact your success in school.
Life Factors and Personal Attributes Aassessments went over some important topics in order to succeed in academic career. I have realized I will have to work hard, sometimes giving up time with friends or family in order to study for exams, work on projects and to build skills that will help me in future. Also, I have learned that those who don’t seek to improve what they do, whether it’s building projects, working along with professors and other students, will eventually get left behind by the people willing to invest in their skills.
Of the life factors mentioned (time, place, reason, resources, and skills), which do you need to focus on the most? How will your behavior need to change for academic success?
Out of all the factors, I feel, time is a special resource that you cannot store or save for later use. Managing your time and using it wisely is a journey, and not something that can be easily mastered overnight. It requires a significant amount of self-discipline. I’ll be implementing a schedule, and periodically be monitoring it’s progress and revise it if the outcome is not up to the expectation.
What personal attributes (academic attributes, help seeking, persistence, procrastination, time management, and locus of control) will you work most to strengthen? How will your behavior need to change for academic success?
