In order to reach these goals, I have to focus on each with a high level of specificity. In the coming years, I hope to be joining the Senior Non-Commissioned Officer (SNCO) tier. This is where my work should be transitioning from the “tactical” level to the “operational” level. I will be required to focus on the bigger picture in order to fulfill my duties. I cannot do this without fixing a few areas concerning how I conduct business on a much smaller scale. Am I ready then to devote myself to something bigger as long as is needed?
Luckily, I already consider myself to maintain a “committed” state of mind concerning my belonging to the Air Force. I will continue focusing on the great things the Air Force has afforded my family and…show more content… I vow to present myself as a prime example for others to follow, both in and out of uniform; the Profession of Arms does not utilize a time clock.

I am going to start taking the time required before a negotiation begins to examine the whole picture appropriately. In my detachment, I fill the role of the primary ISD (Instructional Systems Development) monitor. I am in charge of all
