35 Things to Do for Your Career by 35

35 Things to Do for Your Career by 35 With the average life expectancy being 70 years for men and 74 years for women, it would be good to consider what you should do by the time you’re halfway there. These things touch on your career though they also help you reflect on life in general.Below is a list of 35 things you should do before 35. if you are already there, then take the challenge.1. Conduct your SWOT analysisSWOT analyses are not reserved for big companies or projects. You can also conduct your own to understand your strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats. Just as in a company, this knowledge will help you know what to focus on when building your career further.Understanding the threats that you may face helps you act proactively instead of reactively. This keeps you ahead of the game and ensures more progress is achieved.2. Know your career goalsBy the time you are 35, you should have set your career goals. If you haven’t, this is the time to do it. Career goals keep you on the right path and guide you in the decision-making process. When an opportunity shows up promising an interesting journey, you will be able to identify it as a distraction.In such a case, all you will need to do is check the promised rewards against your goals. If the new opportunity will get you out of the path you are on, then you know it is not one you should pursue.3. Learn how to delegate workForget being superman; there can only be so much you can do. When you attempt to do everything, you will ultimately achieve nothing. Delegating work is one of the most important things you can learn.Delegating work frees you to focus on the important things which can only be done by you. These are the things which either you alone have the expertise to handle or you need them done in a very specific manner. You can learn the art of delegating work.4. Ascertain that you are in the right fieldNothing can make you feel wasted like the need to make a career change when you are mid-way across life. Instead of advanci ng in your career, you start learning the basics of a totally new career. This can be frustrating to the point of affecting your learning abilities.To avoid this, it is important to check your values, strengths and even vision for life. These should be directly connected to your career choice. In case you discover that you ought to have chosen a different career path, then make the change quickly. Just ensure you’re right about it to avoid more changes later.5. Maintain work-life balanceYour career may be promising and rewarding. But do not forget that your life is not all about work. Despite spending much of your waking time at work, other aspects of your life need attention too. This is crucial for a balanced life.Take time to go on holiday. Spend some time with your friends and do not forget to reward yourself. Do not carry your work home and as much as possible, do not work overtime.6. Learn to write effective emailsYour career may not go very far if you do not learn how to co mmunicate effectively through email. Your emails should be grammatically correct, and using clear language that is easy to understand.With your emails, you should be able to express gratitude to customers, pitch your product, express regret, make requests and any other thing needed. If you cannot do these, then it’s time you learned how to.7. Stay in touch with your connectionsWith a career that is growing, it is easy to become too busy and lose important connections. You should avoid this. Every single connection you ever had, especially those who were close to your, should be maintained.Although with the advance in career you might have made new connections, keep the old ones close. There comes a time when you need help and it could be that only one of your old connections is available to help you. So, ensure you keep in touch with them.8. Give your family top priorityWith so many things seeking your attention, it is upon you to make the wise choice. If you have young children, spend time with them. Help them with their homework. Whatever you do, ensure you are part of their lives.If you are yet to have a family, this would be a good time to think about having one. At age 35, you are still young enough and have the energy to handle both work and family. At the same time, having your children all grown up by the time you retire, can be a source of comfort for you.9. Have career non-negotiablesAfter setting your career goals and doing a SWOT analysis of yourself, you should embark on defining some non-negotiables. These are the things you cannot compromise about even in the face of opposition.Non-negotiables help you gain respect and stay focused on the journey you are taking. These will also help you develop more confidence in yourself. Knowing what you can and cannot do gives you the ability to make decisions quickly without wasting time.10. Learn to accept constructive criticismWhether this is called constructive criticism or just feedback, you need to le arn how to accept it. If you are sure it’s wrong and of no benefit to you, then reject it. You don’t have to think hard about what a jealous colleague meant when he gave that negative feedback.However, you should by now have learned to be frank with yourself and to know where you went wrong. A good way of learning this is by spending some time alone to reflect on your values and actions. If your actions were not in line with your values, then you probably acted wrongly.11. Invest for retirementRetirement is coming. Don’t think it’s too far away. It is that kind of reasoning that keeps people from making the right choices only for them to be caught unawares. Start investing now.Note that you should not save for retirement but invest for it. The reason is simple. The economy will change and money saved may lose its value over time. On the other hand, if you invest, your money will have increased both in principle amount as well as maintained its value.12. Do volunteer workVolu nteer work has a lot of benefit apart from just helping people in the society. First, it is a way of increasing awareness about issues that prevail in the real world which others live in. Secondly, it helps you learn more about interactions and building networks as you work with different kinds of people.It also helps you with your career by giving you an opportunity to either exercise your skills or learn new ones. Any skill practiced or learned will in one way or another come back as a benefit some time later. Such skills are known as transferable skills and they will come in handy later in life.13. Invest for a rainy dayLike the money for retirement, this should be kept where it can grow. As much as this is not necessarily meant to grow, value must be protected. With a rainy day situation however, you need to ensure the money is easily accessible because emergencies may occur at any time.If going the bank way, avoid the services which limit your ability to withdraw the funds free ly.Watch the below video for more information about this. 14. Overcome your fearsEveryone has fears but that doesn’t mean that you should be bound by yours. Your fears are best kept under your feet in order to avoid restricted growth. If you don’t overcome your fears, you will have a difficult time moving forward, especially in this age of aggressive competition.Fear will keep you from starting that business idea. It will keep you from approaching your future spouse. Fear will keep you from having children fearing the inability to raise them up. Fear will just keep you from doing anything meaningful. Keep it under your feet.15. Know how to deal with stressStress is inevitable but definitely manageable. Moreover, small amounts of stress increase your productivity by making your concentration levels increase and adrenaline pumping. Under small amounts of stress, you will finish that project on time.That is not to mean that stress is a friend to keep. Chronic stress is dangerous an d can lead to more serious health problems like anxiety and depression. To keep it under control, work on an effective way of managing your tasks. Also set aside time for relaxation and have time for friends too.16. Learn to manage time wellTime management is a big problem for many. This is why many people wonder how others manage to do so much within the same 24 hours they also have. For them, completing four simple tasks is a challenge.This will come down to individual planning but more than that, you will have to develop some discipline to help you along the way. When you are disciplined, you will know when to cut back on what is not needed and when to stick to what is necessary. This way, you will have time for the important things.17. Run a side businessNotice this does not read: start a side business, but run. True, starting something takes courage but sustaining it is where the work really is. When you start a business, you need to look at sustaining and growing it. If that h appens, then you have a big reason to celebrate.But if you start a business and celebrate the step too much, you may become blind to the effort needed to sustain it. Above all, do your research before launching and stay focused and determined. The same way you have grown your career, you can, and should, grow your business.18. Invest in yourselfThe single most important resource in this world is not time. It is you. If you don’t take care of yourself, then guess what. There will be no-one to advance that career or run that business. You are important both to yourself and to those around you.Therefore, take some time and think about how to develop yourself. Invest in your health. Eat healthy foods and exercise regularly. Keep your work environment clean and organized and develop your mind too. Read a lot of books and have enough sleep.Also check with those ahead of you to find out which ways they invest themselves in. It is not a bad idea to borrow from someone else. Especially if they are successful in what you are trying to succeed in.19. Learn to say “No”This is related to learning to delegate work, only that you may not be in a position to delegate. Delegating power comes when you have some authority over others. But what if you are the one below others? Still, you have control over yourself and your abilities.Do not take on more work than you can handle, even if it is your boss giving it to you. If you do, you will not be able to do it well and stress will be knocking on your door daily. At some point, it will just come in.Saying “No” can be learned through a communication skill called assertiveness. This is where you develop yourself enough to know when you can take something and when you can’t. If you want something, you will ask for it. And when you don’t want something, you will confidently say so.20. Develop your personal brandYou are a brand. You don’t have to be appearing on TV or be listed on the NYSE to recognize this. As a brand, it is important that you develop yourself. This will work well after you have done a SWOT analysis of yourself. Thus you will know your current abilities and what needs development.More than that. Recognizing yourself as a brand will help you keep a positive image of yourself. Not to showcase yourself but for your own good. It is all about recognizing your value. This helps you stand out from your colleagues and sets you apart for more connections and valuable partnerships.21. Do something you are proud ofYour life is not all about career and work. You have some desires in you which should also be expressed. As an ambitious person, look deep within to find out what one thing will bring you maximum fulfillment apart from success in your career.It may be traveling to the destination of your dreams. It may be helping the needy people in the society. You are the one who knows best as this is something inside you. Whatever it is, venture out in confidence and do it. Remember to take phot os for memories.22. Join a professional associationMost professions have an association which helps the members in specific ways. Be it for architects, doctors, attorneys or any other profession. Joining these associations may require some money for registration and even to remain a member but it’s well worth it.This will come in handy when starting your own business. If you want to run a private law firm for example, you may experience challenges if you are not a member of the required state bar association.23. Refine your elevator pitchEver dreaded that five-minute ride on the elevator after someone asked you what you do? If you desperately searched for a great answer to impress them but found none, then it’s time you worked on a suitable response. You just don’t know which doors that response can open for you.Avoid thinking about this as just casual talk that carries little meaning since you are having the perfect job. Sit down and write the best things about what you do. G et some good descriptive words and put together a short impressive answer then commit it to memory. The details will just flow naturally.24. Get a mentorGetting a mentor should not be at the bottom of your lifetime To-Do list. Rather, this should have a prominent place. If you have one, that’s good. If you still haven’t gotten a mentor, for whatever reason, then it’s time to find one.This can be fun. You can take it as though you are searching for the perfect candidate to fill an important position in your life. And indeed it is, because a mentor will have a lot of influence over your life. Do your research well and approach the person you settle on. Be sure to be clear what you would like to achieve from the mentorship.Get some great advice on finding a mentor from this video. 25. Know your personalityIf you have registered considerable success in your career by now, then you probably know your personality. Or maybe you know yourself well enough i.e. how you respond to certai n social stimuli, without using the term “personality.” All the same, it is important that you know it officially.From the basic four temperaments to the more detailed Carl Jung’s and Isabel Briggs Myers typology, you have some options. You can take both tests to know just what makes you unique. You will better understand what kind of environments work well with you and which ones are to be avoided.Generally, you will be able to know the kind of a person you are and better appreciate yourself.26. Learn to negotiateNegotiations are not the preserve of salesmen and high-ranking business executives. You need it too, even as an office secretary. Negotiations happen daily only that you don’t see it as such. When you discuss with your manager on the kind of roles to take or with your kids on what duties each of them is to have, you are negotiating. In fact, any time you discuss options, you are negotiating.To do this with effective results, you will have to learn the art of negoti ating. This will help you in your daily relations as well as in advancing your career and business. You might also end up being a celebrated diplomat, bringing warring parties together.27. Seek responsibilityThere are few ways of growing apart from taking on more responsibility. Instead of waiting for your boss to give you charge over a project, make the suggestion yourself. If you see something going wrong in the office, take the initiative and start working on a solution.As you go along, invite some friends to join you and be the one directing the vision of the desired solution. Doing this will help you learn more about leadership and responsibility. Naturally, your abilities will get noticed and some colleagues may even recommend you for a senior position.28. Learn to make decisionsYou make decisions on a daily basis. But how fast do you make them? How well informed are your decisions? How good do those decisions prove to be over time? These are questions you need to ponder to fi nd out how good a decision-maker you are.Making decisionsâ€"and good ones for that matterâ€"is key to your growth. Be it in business or employment, this is one skill you need to have. If you desire to move up the ladder, you better learn this skill at the earliest opportunity so that you have it when it’s needed.29. Mentor othersHave you achieved considerable success in your career or business? Then you need to share the lessons learned with others. Whether you have learned by yourself the hard way or someone held your hand, you should be ready to share.Help someone else climb the ladder. The world will be a better place when more people are successful.30. Learn financial management skillsThere aren’t many ways of proving your success other than through your money. Money can be a tricky thing to manage however. You can have money flowing in and out of your account but have nothing for yourself. Maybe all your money belongs to the mortgage provider, service providers and the like .You will do well to learn how to budget, how to cut down costs and other financial management skills. These are one of the things which separate the rich from the other lot. As much as the rich may spend money on expensive items, they have mastery over their finances. That is how in the first place they can afford expensive luxuries without feeling it.31. Have a killer LinkedIn profileCareer growth cannot happen without good connections. And what better platform to connect with like-minded professions than on LinkedIn? This networking site offer a lot of openings for great connections. But the biggest benefits go to the people who come up with profiles which stand out.Writing a killer LinkedIn profile may need some work. Knowing what keywords to use and where to use them is one thing. More than that, you should know how to connect correctly to avoid coming across as someone out to use others.32. Stop making excusesExcuses are not valid reasons as to why you cannot do something. The se are mere explanations of why you are unwilling to do something. If you are to advance in the field you are in, then excuses need to be far away from your mouth. Not even in your mind where they get manufactured.If you are having trouble with fear, check item 14 above. If you are struggling with laziness, then you need to overcome that. Just find out what the problem is then work on a solution. Do not hold back from opening up to someone you think can help you.33. Have a plan BLife is always ready to serve you a surprise meal. What will you do when things don’t go as per your plans? First things first, you can’t give up. That’s not the attitude of someone pursuing success. At the same time, you cannot start playing the blame game. Do not blame the government or the weather.Since you know surprises are bound to come, take charge and put the necessary measures in place. Having a plan B does not mean that you don’t believe in your plan A. You are just being smart enough to un derstand that you don’t have control over all factors.34. Specialize in somethingJack of all trades and master of none? That’s the wrong approach to success. You will rarely achieve much if that is how you choose to operate. Successful people are masters of at least one thing. There should be one thing which you have invested yourself into so as to learn as much as possible about it.This way, you easily become the go-to person when people need advice and direction in that matter. This will also give you a sense of fulfillment and achievement.35. Be accountableAccountability will always be a safeguard for anyone pursuing success. It helps you operate within the acceptable boundaries. When you are accountable to someone, you will have someone watching your back and also ready to celebrate with you when you succeed.Finding the right person to be accountable to can be challenging. If you are married, you can consider having your spouse as your accountability partner. Though it may f eel restrictive, they may actually be the best people for the role since you can be sure they have your best interests at heart.In any case, aren’t they benefiting from your success?

Winston Churchill Britains Guardian Angel - 759 Words

Winston Churchill: Britain’s Guardian Angel The date was August, 1940. London was a mess of smoking ruins and rubble. Somber visages marked the faces of passersby, all except for a plump, elderly man. His jowl quivered as he smiled and greeted everyone he saw; he dried the tears of a frightened child. This man was Winston Churchill, Prime Minister of Britain during World War II. Heroes are often viewed as young, fit men who fight with physical strength, yet Winston Churchill led Britain to victory as an old man, solely using good leadership skills and determination. Winston Churchill is an example of a modern hero and his extraordinary odyssey fits most of the criteria of Joseph Campbell’s hero’s journey. As a boy Winston was not expected to amount to anything. Born on November 30, 1874 at Blenheim Palace to an aristocratic family, he was sickly and disinterested in all of his studies except reading. Though privileged, Churchill was neglected by both of his parents. He dropped out of two schools before attending Harrow Boarding School. There, he developed an interest in the military, and went on to attend Sandhurst Royal Military College. It took Churchill three tries to pass the entrance exam, but he did extremely well at Sandhurst, developing a love of horse-riding and graduating with honors. Once out of college, Churchill joined the 4th Hussars, a gentlemen cavalry regiment, and served in India and Sudan, protecting British colonial borders.

Biomechanics Kinematics of Jumping, Literature Review

Literature review Jumping is a movement which is fundamental to a vast majority of sports (Grimshaw et.al 2006). The goal of a jump may be to try and achieve the longest or highest jump possible, as in long jump and high jump; or they may be performed to intercept the opposition for example a header in football or defensive block in basketball (Matavulj et.al, 2001) (Juarez et.al, 2011). An example of a jump is a counter-movement jump as defined by (Marshall Moran 2013) as being a form of vertical jump which involves a preparatory movement downwards before a forceful extension of the hip, knee and ankle moves the body upwards into the concentric phase. A jump which can be related to both vertical jump at toe-off (concentric) and counter-movement jump at the landing phase (eccentric) is a drop jump. Drop jump It is explained by (Hilfiker et.al, 2007) that the drop jump is used in training and in the pre-match warm-ups for sports such as, football, basketball and volleyball where counter-movement in a jump is a regular occurrence. (Bobbert 1986) states how the hip, knee and ankle joints all experience a period of flexion during the counter-movement phase of a drop jump. During this phase the main contractions of muscles are the eccentric contraction of the hip, knee and ankle extensors. (Young Behm 2003) explain that before partaking in a drop jump, stretches for the hamstring, ankle plantar flexors and the quadriceps should take place as these are the main

Planning To Meet The Needs Of Learning Free Essays

At my place of work – Include, we do not have ILP’s, this is because we run a twenty week, roll on roll off programme and we wouldn’t have the time. We do however set goals, at the start and during monthly reviews, using simplified paperwork.. We will write a custom essay sample on Planning To Meet The Needs Of Learning or any similar topic only for you Order Now Our sister company that teach pre- sixteen’s do, and I have looked at these documents to reflect on anything that would be transferable to my teaching and offer improvements. The role of initial and diagnostic assessments is key for producing individual learning goals. It is essential to find out exactly where the student wants to go, why they are wanting qualifications, eg for a particular course at college, and what is realistic bearing in mind their diagnostic assessments. Initially all students are tested using BKSB to find the level they are and what they might achieve with help and teaching from the Functional skills tutor. We carry out Initial Assessments, (A) and Foundation Learning agreements (B) which note career progression aims, some objectives, qualifications to be taken, while with us as well as other documentation gathering personal details, health, education and drug and alcohol misuse. Our Initial assessment covers previous learning experiences, learning styles, personal and social skills, health and personal circumstances as well as the support we can provide to help the student reach his goals. We also carry out a monthly review, one of the most important ways we can check how the student is performing, his progress, whether he is on track and more importantly whether he feels he’s learning, achieving his goals, and whether he feels supported in his learning. This review time, is also a time when the student can tell us what he wants and where we and he could improve outcomes. During the review we can find out how the last few weeks lessons have gone, and together we will set SMART targets, and any behavioural problems, late arrivals, not joining in class etc. are addressed and support that would be helpful, worked out together for the next month . We also discuss where he would like to go to work experience and try hard to find the correct match, as this is often a spur to his learning. After goals have been decided and any support worked out the student will sign the review sheet which is filed in their learner file, and a copy is given to the student to refer to each day, to remind them of goals and targets. After the Initial Assessment and reviews, our student profile (C) is updated (weekly) and this is used with our current session plan as a pointer as to how our students need supporting. I also carry out tutorials, usually towards the end of each unit when students discuss and work with me on any any unfinished or not understood criteria, before completing. The two sessions I have chosen, are on Independent Living (D E). When planning sessions I must be sure that the work I set covers the criteria set by the exam board and balance this with the needs and understanding of my students. I must also bear in mind my minimum core document. â€Å"The minimum core will support all teachers in developing inclusive approaches to learners with literacy, numeracy and IT needs and raise achievements of learners on their learning programme† LLuk (2007) Obviously I must embed English, numeracy and IT into session planning, bearing in mind that I may well have students as varied in abilities as E1 through to Level 1 or even Level 2. Most of the units I teach are available in E3 or L1, so I will differentiate between the students as to what level they work at As I frequently have a number of foreign students speaking very little English when they join, I must remember to include LA1. 3, LA1. 6, LA2. 1 and LA2. 3 . 4. At the reviews the Functional skills tutors will feed in literacy and numeracy problems and goals to be addressed during the month, these I need to include in my lesson planning eg L needs to develop spelling and punctuation skills, so when planning the next lesson, I look to see if I can incorporate something to build on these eg word searches, or reminding him to be careful with punctuation in his writing. The student in the Initial Assessment (A) needs help and support with reading and writing, so a support worker needs to be written into every session plan to help. In many of the units I teach, class participation in discussions are expected and I must express myself clearly LS1 , LS2, LS3, LL1. I must plan my lesson carrying out LR1 LR2. Embedding numeracy in a non maths lesson can be tricky, but in session (D) researching a flat and tenancy (IT) students had to work out much they would pay out to rent a flat (rent plus deposit etc) and in (E) designed a bedsit, incorporating measurements. Above all when planning a session I must produce a lesson that considers the subject content and criteria, it must be relevant to the students, it must take into consideration, their learning needs and goals and and help stretch their capabilities. In the new session plan forms we have a section where we can list each students individual needs, and the strategy for helping this. This section concentrates my mind during planning and actual delivery, to remember each students needs and goals. There is also a section for differentiation which again reminds me of each students goals. All the time I am teaching I must not be complacent , but continually improve my practice. This will be done by, talking with students during their review about the months learning, what they feel they have/have not learnt. By asking students to fill in anonymous evaluation forms. Discussions with the class about the units and what they learnt or would like to learn in the future. Listening to my IV’er and her feedback on the students work and on the unit levels, which have passed. Reflecting on my teaching is a very important stage in helping me move my lessons and teaching, forward, it is about being more self aware and analysing what happened in my lessons. Schon (1983) suggests â€Å"reflect while you’re doing it† and â€Å"reflect after doing it† I like this straight forward approach. Planning to meet the needs of my learners means I must be continually review my teaching practise, improving on lesson content and find new and different ways of meeting my students needs, raise their self esteem and self worth which in turn helps self regulation and encourages the student to learn in a classroom setting.

Time Management Essay Example For Students

Time Management Essay Time Management Essay Things that matter most should never be at the mercy of thing that matter least. We, as human beings, let this happen much too often. Many of us waste our time on things that are neither important nor necessary, instead of using that time for thing of that are significant. Time management is not only how to get more out of youre time, but really how to become a better person. Time is a very hard thing to manage, because we can neither see it or feel it until its has passed. Before we can manage our time we must know exactly what time is. The dictionary describes it as, the duration of ones life; the hours and days which a person has at his disposal. How we dispose of that time is time management. Its the way we spend our time to organize and execute around our priorities. Remember just because time is intangible doesnt mean that it is not valuable. I want to teach you about the background of time management, the different styles and how to use them, and how it will change your life. We will write a custom essay on Time Management specifically for you for only $16.38 $13.9/page Order now Background Time management today is not as it was in the past. It has grown with time. Stephen R. Covey places time management into four generations. He feels it has evolved the same way society has. Each generation grows on the one before it. For example, the agriculture revolution was followed by the industrial revolution, which was then followed by the informational revolution. The first wave or generation is basically notes and checklist. Which really only identifies the demands placed on our time and energy. Calendars and appointment books characterize the second generation. This reflects an attempt to look ahead. The third generation is current time management field. Its the last two generations with the ideas of prioritization, clarifying values, and comparing the worth of activities. It also includes the idea of making a specific plan to accomplish goals and activities that we determined to be of value. Because this all may be too restricting for people they turn to the previous generations to preserve relationships, and spontaneity. And the last generation, which is just beginning to emerge, is a different type of time management. The challenge is not to manage time, but to manage ourselves. The generation focuses on relationships and results. Time management is forever changing. We each see it in our own way. It has been used since the start of time and will only improve. Just because there has been progression doesnt mean that we have progressed with it. Styles and How To Use Them There are many different types of time management, some are simpler and some are more complex, but all are useful. We must each find a style that were compatible with and implement it into our lives. Even if the style you choose is not the most effective one, you must use it everyday to help better manage your time. Before you begin to manage your time you must realize that it is not a short-term project, but a life long commitment. Getting and Staying Organized This is a system thats purpose is to save you a few hours a day by showing you how to organize.

We will write a custom essay on Time management specifically for you for only $16.38 $13.9/page Order now As a student there are some basic principals of time management that you can apply. Identify the best time for studying. Everyone has high and low periods of attention and concentration. Are you a morning person or a night person? Use your power times for studying, especially if you have children. Use your down times for cleaning, laundry, and running errands. If you have a job like most of us do, make a slot in your day for studying. Study difficult subjects first. When you are fresh, you can process information more quickly and save time as a result. You can also avoid falling asleep on the subjects you are not interested in. If you find yourself avoiding a particular subject, get up an hour early to study it before breakfast. With that chore out of the way, the rest of your day can be a breeze. Make sure your surrounding are conductive to studying. This will allow you to reduce distraction, which can waste time. Use a regular study area. Your body and your mind know where you are. When you use the same place to study, day after day, your body and mind become trained. College libraries are designed for learning. The lighting is perfect. The noise level is low and materials are available for you to study. Some of us can study when our children are at school or even when they are asleep. If this doesnt work for you try to get up an hour early so you can have the quiet time you need to study. Try to combine activities. If you are spending time at the Laundromat bring your notes to study. If you are cooking a meal for your family, read a chapter or two while you wait for supper to be ready. A tape recorder can help you use commuting time to your advantage. Make a cassette tape of yourself reading your notes. Then play these tapes in a car stereo as you drive, or listen through your headphones as you ride on the bus or exercise. These are some ideas to help us manage our time. We all find it difficult to cram all things at once, so if we schedule ourselves we are more likely to succeed and become less stressed when it comes to taking courses at a college. And we find ourselves enjoying college courses and not disliking them. Time really cannot be managed. You cant slow it down or speed it up or manufacture it. It just IS.

Work School 2.What activities or things cause you to waste time? Television Time out for myself Online Surfing 3.What activities can you eliminate or reduce in order to create more time, especially for online college work? I could reduce or eliminate all together the time I allow myself to watch television, in which I already took the TV out of my room where I do all work and school work. This has reduced the time it takes to complete a task already. 4.Define Circadian Rhythm. When is your high-energy time? What activities are you completing during this high-energy time? Circadian Rhythm is a metabolic or behavior pattern that repeats in cycles of about every 24 hours. It is a rhythm that spans about a twenty-four-hour day, such as that of the sleep-waking cycle. Circadian rhythms in humans originate from a clock circuit in the hypothalamus that is set by information from the optic nerve about whether it is day or night. My high-energy time is usally around 12:00 PM til about 7:00 PM. I am always either working or at school at this time range during the week, but I have noticed on the weekends I really do not have a set high-energy level it just comes and goes. Now is that because we as humans set our high-energy levels to trigger due to our environmental needs? What are your thoughts on that Greg? 5.When do you study? Where do you study? Is any study time during your high-energy period as defined by Circadian Rhythm? I study normally in the time range of 11:00 PM to 3:00 AM than I go to bed; of course this is during the week as I attend in seat class. Than on the weekend I study when I feel like it which is usally all day and night, but with several Breaks in between some longer than others. I study in my Bedroom where I have created a nice peaceful atmosphere other than my music that plays in the background. Well as I asked you in the previous question do we tend to manipulate our own high-energy cycles? See I think that I am able to on the weekends due to the relax atmosphere, but during the chaos of the week it surly seems to be it a cycle that I no longer control. Answer is yes for the fact is I am in a class room atmosphere from 5:45 to 7:00 PM four nights a week usally that is and I do study during my high-energy level. 6.How might studying and working in accordance with your learning style help you to save time?

Ethical Dilemma Essays - Dilemmas, Philosophy, Philosophy Of Life

Ethical Dilemma Essays - Dilemmas, Philosophy, Philosophy Of Life Ethical Dilemma In this paper I will provide information about an ethical dilemma that I have experienced or witnessed. Included in this paper will be the essential points of the dilemma, how it intersects with my personal values and how would I solve this dilemma and why. Ethics as a philosophy is concerned with being a good person, living a good life and doing what a person feels as right. This includes reasoning about general principles and using thought processes to develop appropriate actions to any given situation. Ethics go beyond the formulating of ideas to justify actions; it attempts to show that some ideas, thoughts, and actions are sounder than others (Freeman, 2000). The "Merriam-Webster Dictionary" (2013) website states that ethics in the workplace are the principles of conduct governing an individual or a group. I work as an advocate for a domestic violence agency. Through the last seven years, I have seen people come and go; clients and coworkers alike. I have heard so many stories; good and bad and have dealt with several ethical dilemmas though my time here. The most current and ongoing dilemma in the workplace is with a coworker. The agency I work for has an advocate position at the local Department of Social and Health Services (DSHS), which is called the CSO (customer service office) advocate. This position is good for people receiving state benefits in abusive relationships so that the person can talk to an advocate without fear of being found. The advocate in this position is the one causing the dilemma. With any job, there are rules to live by. These are usually stated in workplace policies and procedures, but some are just common sense. My workplace, like many others has policies and procedures. In many places of employment, it is mandatory to call in when running late or when sick. This particular coworker usually does not call in when running late and usually does not call in sick until half-way through the work day. This has been an ethical and moral dilemma for the past few years. She has been asked repeatedly by our director to follow these guidelines but to limited responses. The biggest issue is that calling in is not written in the policies. Common sense says that when a person is running late or sick is that a person calls in before the work day starts. My personal beliefs say that when I am sick or late, it is a common courtesy to let the employer know what is going on. Most employers would fire a person for not calling in. I believe that there need to be a certain amount of accountability for people and if a person cannot participate in the job function, which there are plenty of people qualified who are unemployed and would jump at a chance for a decent paying job. For my other coworkers and I, this has been a major issue. For one, there is no reliability. If we have someone in our office that may need help at the CSO office, we never know if she is there or not. The clients are being hurt by the CSO advocate not showing up for scheduled appointments as well as the possibility of the agency losing a grant because the hours are not being filled. But yet there has been few repercussions associated with the behavior. These behaviors have also had negative effects on the morale of the other employees. The Executive Director of the agency has been documenting these activities and has also stated that she is making sure everything is done legally. The staff does not think that things are being done about the behavior, but we continue to document activity and pass the information to our Director. This seems to be the only thing the staff can do at this point and to have faith that our director will handle the issue in her own time. As Lead Advocate, I continue to pass on information to the Director as well as listen to the director state her ideas and fears about this coworker. The director feels that this person is the type of person who would try to sue the agency

Natural Mosquito Repellents

Natural Mosquito Repellents When I was pregnant, I wanted to avoid using toxic chemical insect repellents, yet the mosquitoes seemed to find me tastier than ever. My solution at that time was to wear what I called my DEET sheet, which was an old cotton sheet that had been sprayed with S.C. Johnsons Off! Deep Woods formula. While this was highly effective, it wasnt practical for use around kids, so I did research into safer, natural mosquito repellents. I learned that many so-called natural mosquito repellents dont repel mosquitoes (e.g., ultrasonic electronic devices), but some are backed by reputable research and really work. Key Takeaways The two ways to repel mosquitoes are to attract them away from you or to repel them directly.Mosquitoes are often repelled by plant essential oils, especially lemon eucalyptus oil.Even the best repellent may be compromised by a reaction with sunscreen, dilution in water, absorption into the skin, or evaporation into the air. Its important to re-apply repellent to maintain its effectiveness. Mosquitoes have complex methods of detecting hosts and different types of mosquitoes react to different stimuli. Most mosquitoes are active at dawn and dusk, but there are also mosquitoes that seek hosts during the day. You can avoid being bitten by making sure you arent attracting mosquitoes, using attractants to lure mosquitoes elsewhere, using a repellent, and avoiding actions that diminish the effectiveness of the repellent. Mosquito Attractants Use this list of items and activities that attract mosquitoes as a list of things to avoid or that can be used as bait to lure mosquitoes away from you. Dark ClothingMany mosquitoes use vision to locate hosts from a distance. Dark clothes and foliage are initial attractants.Carbon DioxideYou give off more carbon dioxide when you are hot or have been exercising. A burning candle or other fire is another source of carbon dioxide.Lactic AcidYou release more lactic acid when you have been exercising or after eating certain foods (e.g., salty foods, high-potassium foods).Floral or Fruity FragrancesIn addition to perfumes, hair products, and scented sunscreens, watch for the subtle floral fragrance from fabric softeners and dryer sheets.Skin TemperatureThe exact temperature depends on the type of mosquito. Many mosquitoes are attracted to the slightly cooler temperatures of the extremities.MoistureMosquitoes are attracted by perspiration because of the chemicals it contains and also because it increases the humidity around your body. Even small amounts of water (e.g., moist plants or mud puddles) will draw mosquitoes. Standing water also a llows mosquitoes to reproduce. Blood TypePerson with type O blood are more attractive to mosquitoes than those with A, B, or AB blood. This blood type is rare, but if you have a friend or family member with type O blood, mosquitoes (and the Red Cross) like them better than they like you. Natural Mosquito Repellents Its very easy to make your own natural mosquito repellent. These natural products will effectively repel mosquitoes, but they require more frequent reapplication (at least every 2 hours) and higher concentrations than DEET. Because of the differences between types of mosquitoes, products that contain multiple repellents tend to be more effective than those containing a single ingredient. As you can see, natural repellents tend to be volatile plant oils. Citronella OilLemon Eucalyptus OilCinnamon OilCastor OilRosemary OilLemongrass OilCedar OilPeppermint OilClove OilGeranium OilCatnip OilTobaccoNeem OilBirch Tree BarkPossibly Oils from Verbena, Pennyroyal, Lavender, Pine, Cajeput, Basil, Thyme, Allspice, Soybean, and Garlic Another plant-derived substance, pyrethrum, is an insecticide. Pyrethrum comes from the flowers of the daisy Chrysanthemum cinerariifolium. Things that Lower Repellent Effectiveness Despite your best efforts, you may be unintentionally sabotaging your repellents effectiveness. Mosquito repellent doesnt play nicely with: Many SunscreensDilution From Rain, Perspiration, or SwimmingAbsorption Into the SkinEvaporation From Wind or High Temperatures Keep in mind that natural does not automatically imply safe. Many people are sensitive to plant oils. Some natural insect repellents are actually toxic. Therefore, although natural repellents provide an alternative to synthetic chemicals, please remember to follow the manufacturers instructions when using these products. Source M. S. Fradin; J. F.
