Commitment After Introspection
Going through the links provided this first week of classes, I was able to engage in some self-contemplation about how I do things in the past and on what to do to enhance my learning activity. The scores I got after doing the Self Regulation Questionnaires showed how poor I am in time management and that I have lots of work to do in order to be an effective time manager.
I decided to list the things that I used to do in the past with the corresponding changes that I am set to follow from now on to be closer to having a tag of an “effective time manager”.
Past Now & the Future
|“Can remember them all” mentality||Have a schedule of activities ahead to be able to have anoverview of the tasks to be performed|
|Procrastination||Follow the schedule religiously|
|Being a fan of “cramming”||Divide and prioritize tasks|
|Overrating myself for a poor performance||Better performance = reward|
|Easily distracted by the noise at home while studying||Go to the public library to study|
After committing myself for the better, I have started doing the first item on the list and slowly taking steps following the second. I was a non-believer of this ever since until my first trimester taking PTC course. I got heavier responsibilities now that I am married and so I have to quit trusting too much on my ability to remember things at once. 🙂
