Examine the category Work in your weekly plan. How are you currently meeting your goals? Recently, I’ve been working at a restaurant and I am quite busy with everything that’s going on in my life. Along with working at the restaurant, I need to make sure that I get my schoolwork done on time and also take care of the housework. However, I enjoy being busy because it keeps me away from being bored, increase my creativity as well as experience. 2. Explain the challenges and successes you encountered this week? Unlike last week when I did not really have any challenge. I have encountered a lot of challenges this week. Some of them are: my bike gets stolen, balancing my life, taking care of myself, and saying “no” to an invitation. I believe that saying “no” to an invitation is one of my biggest problem. I feel like I am spending too much time hanging out than I should. However, I was able to countered my challenge from last …show more content…
I believe that spending less time hanging out will help me save more money, and also allow me to have more time for schoolwork. Another thing I need to change is the way I take care of my stuff since I’ve been lost a couple things after I moved into this new apartment. 5. What concepts from the reading resonated with you the most from week three? Explain. The concept that resonated with me the most from the reading of week three is the concept of “Intrinsic Versus Extrinsic Motivation”. I was impress thinking about how different it is when I do something with an Intrinsic Motivation compare to when I do something with an Extrinsic Motivation. According to the definition of Intrinsic Motivation, it is an internal desire to complete an activity because of its inherent satisfaction. Therefore, I realized that I should always be doing something with an Intrinsic Motivation instead of Extrinsic Motivation. 6. How could you apply these concepts in your
Week 2 has been quite overwhelming. I did not have enough time to do my reading assignments over the weekend. I normally utilize Saturday and Sunday to do my research work and reading. Unfortunately, on Saturday morning, I attended a meeting that took half of the day, when I returned home my husband informed that he had invited our friends over for dinner as they will be leaving for Melbourne the following day. My house was a mess as it hadn't been cleaned the previous weekend when we were away. Thus, my whole Saturday was wasted on doing the trivial aspects of life. I missed church on Sunday so that I can catch up on my work and everything went well thereafter. I managed to complete my tasks. I found that a lot of students were divided when it came answering the forum discussion assignment on what would happen to bond prices if terrorism ended and countries adopted free trade. What's you take on this one?
Is being busy a bad thing? Tim Kreider believes it is. He states that people are overscheduling themselves which is unnecessary and silly of them to do. Kreider begins his argument in his article “The ‘Busy Trap”, by asking how many times we respond with “I’m busy” when asked how we are doing. Living in today’s society it’s the normal thing to be busy to the point of exhaustion. In fact, Kreider states that people who are working full time jobs or crazy hours are not those who say that they are busy. Being tired is what makes people feel like they are busy. For example, a mother working at the local grocery store, gas station, and recreation center will tell others that she is doing well when asked about how she is doing. On the other
In addition, I like to finish any homework promptly and I even try to be ahead as much as I can so that I won’t be frazzled out about not having it done. Likewise, while working I try to get
It is safe to assume that at any given time, you will struggle to make time for yourself amid your busy schedule. There are too many things to do, places to be, and people to tend to. What ultimately happens is that you end up neglecting the most important person which is YOU.
The work of Harlow and Deci, however, brought a different perspective to the table. The idea that people can be motivated internally by things that cannot be seen or touched was a startling new concept. Intrinsic motivation, or Motivation 3.0 as Pink calls it, was officially born. Motivation 3.0 suggests that “I want to do something” because the sheer act of doing so is personally satisfying and deeply meaningful on a much grander scale. Intrinsic motivation, as the name implies, comes from within an
Weekplan is a weekly planner app with more 300,000 users. It's based on Dr. Stephen Covey’s four quadrant model. Most time management systems are good at helping store the tasks you need to do, but Weekplan is different—it helps you not just prioritize your tasks but also motivates you to do these tasks through daily reminders and notifications. It also allows you to mark tasks as important or urgent. By the end of the week, you can clearly see where you spent most of your time. It even provides quadrant view, goals, a journal, reminders and integration with Google Calendar.
Usually when someone wants to lose weight, they are eager to get it off as fast as possible. Waiting around for months for the pounds to drop away is not a pleasing thought and they want something to happen right now. Luckily, there are many different diet plans to lose weight fast that do give results.
Whether in our personal or professional lives, we all say it. For most of us, we throw the term around so easily that we don’t even realize we are doing it. At this point in your day, I’m sure you have either said it to someone, or someone has said it to you (maybe even a few times). What am I talking about you may ask? That tiny little four-letter word we use to describe our plate being too full, our never-ending to-do list, or the act of juggling multiple tasks at once – I’m talking about being “busy”.
