1.24.2017 Mindset

What do you think about mindset and would you describe yourself as fixed or growth or a little of both. Give examples. The chart was very eye opening for me. I am definitely a fixed mindset person in almost every aspect. I've had discussions with my parents about my mindset but it didn't really click for me until I was able to actually see it written down and evaluate myself. When I look back, I can see many instances where my younger brother would understand something better than I would or do things quicker or score higher on something and my first instinct would be that he was just better than me and I would simply give up. I was very threatened by his success, especially since I was the older one. It took me a number of years feeling lesser than him for me to realize and fully grasp that we were different people with different skill sets and we would never be equal. There are things now that I realize that I can do, maybe better than him, maybe not. But I try to be less competitive and I feel significantly less threatened by his successes now.

1.31.17 Time Management

What time management strategies did you use last semester? How well did they work? At the beginning of the semester, I kept up really well with my agenda and wrote every upcoming assignment and activity I had in order the keep track of my time. I was religious in following it. After my first test week, I received some unsatisfactory grades and was a little less motivated to keep up with my agenda. It sort of just fizzled out through the rest of the semester. I also realized that I did not adequately plan time for social activities with friends. I did not plan to properly balance my time with schoolwork and friends.

2.9.17 Procrastination

Procrastination occurs usually when we're not comfortable. Reflect on what makes you uncomfortable, how procrastination has impacted your life, and what and why you prefer process over product. I don't like the idea of not being able to do things well enough. If I feel incompetent, I won't even want to try. Also, I am a very indecisive person and I often will do anything that I can to avoid making choices of any magnitude.
