P.335 #1 How to Make Lazy People Do the Right Thing by Richard H. Thaler and Cass R. Sunstein
To which of my points are you referring to as "irrelevant"? There must be a translation issue between you and I. It appears you believe I am worried or scared. While I greatly appreciate your concern respectfully I am neither. Pride in our great nation is relevant. The truth is relevant. Facts are relevant. Sadly you haven't any of the three. I am still waiting for you to produce the law that was broken by President Trump. It's kind of tough to impeach somebody on the basis of gut feelings and personal preferences coupled with a constant barrage of unfounded accusations from an unrelenting leftist media. Trolls such as yourself are traitors to this country and will be treated as such. It's called seditious conspiracy. Look it up. You won't
The main focus of Geoff Colvin’s, “What It Takes to Be Great”, published October 30, 2006, by Fortune, is on the importance that talent is to success. Researches were curious on,”how people were able to go on improving”, or how much is talent needed for success. They studied the best of the best in a variety of fields, such as: Michael Jordan, Winston Churchill, Vladimir Horowitz, Tiger Woods, and many more. Most people believe that talent makes someone great, but Colvin concludes, that people aren’t great through talent, but through deliberate practice. Deliberate practice involves a healthy mindset, consistency, obsessive practice, and discipline. Colvin shares,”The critical reality is that we are not hostage to some naturally given level
Many are rich many are poor many have money many don’t. Have you ever had a moment where you did something selfish for desperation of money and karma hit you right back with a right hook?. And felt regret towards yourself. In the short story “Why, You Reckon” the author uses irony and dialogue, to show the audience that money can't buy happiness.
After reading the readings that I have read for this paper makes me sit back and think how others were raised. I wonder if these people were taught right from wrong. It is really hard for me to think that so many people just think of themselves and do not want to help anybody else out in a time of need. If it be at work, personal life, or in a state of emergency. I feel that if you do not help another person out you are a selfish irresponsible person. There are way too many people who like to make somebody else be responsible for what they should take responsibility for.
In my social life I need to understand that all things are not perfect and neither am I. Situations can be resolved with different types of solutions and I need to be open to those different types of solutions. I must revert back to critical thinking and evaluate carefully and truthfully to find that solution. I need to learn to be a balance thinker. Leading with ethical thinking can hinder the critical thinking method.
Failure is a scary word. It’s a scary topic, and a scary feeling for many of us. We tend to focus more on not failing that we lose track of what were really aiming for; success. In Mistakes Were Made by Carol Tavris and Elliot Aronson, we get an insight on why the gap between Asian and American classroom performance are so wide.
In the article “A Generation of Slackers? Not So Much”, by Catherine Rampell, the author analyzes and challenges the popular stigma that Millennials are the laziest generation to have ever existed. Rampell begins her article with a staggering fact: “The unemployment rate for 16- to 24-year-olds is a whopping 17.6 percent” (Rampell 388). And according to seventy-five percent of Americans, “Today’s youth are less virtuous and industrious than their elders” (Rampell 388). This may seem like an incredibly high percentage of Americans, but you might be astonished to learn that even “Two-thirds of millennials said older adults were superior to the younger generation when it came
It’s midnight and your son or daughter still haven’t got any sleep because they are up doing their homework, struggling with problem #3 thinking why do teachers give so much homework. They start having anxiety and cannot concentrate knowing all of their homework is due the next day. This is why teachers should reduce homework, so students won't have to go through this in the middle of the night.
There is nothing wrong with someone putting time aside for themselves and making sure that they are okay. In fact, one may end up with poor mental health if they didn’t take such action. My problem is whenever someone thinks that others owe them; when someone only cares for themselves and acts as if they are the only one that matters. Society seems to agree with me, as many people utter phrases such as "You're selfish" or "The world doesn't revolve around you"! The problem is that many say those phrases to the wrong people. Too many times, someone tries to make things better for themselves and is ridiculed for it, by people who think that they should be doing something else. Again, there is nothing wrong with one taking time out for themselves, because after all their life is, in fact, their life. No one knows what's "best for them" or "what they should be doing" besides them, yet too many people think that it's their job to put someone "in their place" and tell them what they should be doing. In actuality, the people who are giving their harsh lesson on selfishness are performing an act of selfishness themselves, by thinking that their opinions of someone else's life (and actions) matter more that of the actual person they are commenting on.. It's unfortunate to say, but too many people are tricked into thinking that
What persuades you is factual evidence, sometimes personal accounts as well as logical statements. Drawbacks are also a part of understanding both sides of an argument. Being biased and aggressive in writing takes your voice away from actual persuasion to help the reader understand what point you are making. In everyday communication with others, you do not yell or berate someone else, so why do it in writing? Therefore, the author’s intentions on the first-hand experience towards his audience are persuaded.
In the article “What Can I Say to Make You to Stop?” written by Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation writes about how a friend/family member can do to help their loved one find help with addiction. It also gives advice regarding how to help them. When I was going through my addiction days this sort of information would have helped my family immensely. It’s hard to have someone you care about have an addiction and not know what to do, or how to help. So, I will be discussing on how the main points the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation talk about in their article could really help others, with friends/family members that have an addiction problem.
My philosophy of learning has changed significantly since I came to the college. And it is kinda embarrassed to share with you the fact that I was not really know how to properly use internet to do the data researches before. Further, I had a pretty poor time management skill, and not really good at act socialize, and I didn't know how to communicate, negotiate, collaborate with team, and how to present myself in front of people which are all typical necessary skills that all college student should possess , but I didn't have these skills in three years ago. It has a lot to do with my personality, I took the personality assessment test in my senior year at my high school, the result of test identifies myself as a person that possesses rarely
Being continuously criticized with the aid of own family, buddies, and society tends to slowly strip us of our feelings of self worth. Our low self-worth strips us of our self esteem to make even the smallest of decisions. We assume little of ourselves, and experience we aren't really worth a penny and do no longer deserve to be glad. High self esteem is right maximum of the time, however some people have too excessive self esteems and they might come on robust. People may also call seek advice from those kind as "cocky" or "demanding. " But in view that low self confidence is still worse than the better one, let's see what solutions there are to
