Answer the following questions in complete sentences:

  1. What is your career goal as a psychology major today?

Earning a degree in psychology would allow me to pursue my passion for understanding how others think and act, while also helping me develop as a person. For as long as I can remember, I’ve liked engaging in conversation and finding out more about new individuals. My current work as a community advocate for mental health awareness will be reinforced and my understanding of this job will deepen with this degree. Most significantly, I have spent the better part of my life in the company of addicts afflicted by their disease. I know that by completing my education, I will be better able to help others who are struggling with severe addiction. As far as I can tell, a master’s degree in psychology is almost required for any professional path that starts with a bachelor’s in the subject.

 While referencing undergraduate psychology students, Karen Huffman (2023) Psychology in Action 8th edition in his book indicated that it is expected that individuals graduating with a bachelor’s degree in psychology would have a firm grasp of the fundamentals of the field. Moreover, they discussed how the degree will help them in their personal life, academic pursuits, and professional endeavors. Despite my lack of resolve in choosing a major before reading this, I could not be happier with where my education is headed. At this point in my life, I feel like I am right where I am supposed to be.

  1. Of all the activities in your life, identify your top three highest priorities and top three lowest priorities.

Highest Priorities

Lowest Priorities

1. Personal connection with God

1. Taking in some Tv time.

2. Family/ Kids

2. Time wasted on meaningless web surfing.

3. My health

3. Spending time with negative, unhelpful, and toxic individuals.

4. My office Work

4. Social Media

5.  Putting my attention squarely on my own career and personal objectives. This includes my classes.

5. Household chores like laundry, dishwashing 

6. Engaging with the individuals that matter to me, both personally and in the larger community.

6. Hobbies

7. Stability in one’s finances.

7. Hang out with friends.

 

  1. If you have time management conflicts between these priorities, how will you decide where your time goes?

My children come first in any time management issue, and if I still need to finish the other tasks, I will figure something out. Despite the obvious contrast between my top and bottom goals, I am often shocked by how difficult it may be to stick to those I have set for myself. At times, I’m either too indolent to do anything or too afraid to take any action. They would both make it harder for me to set priorities. In the event that I find myself falling back on unhelpful routines and habits that prevent me from getting anything done, I may go to my to-do list and make an appropriate adjustment. I am aware that it is solely up to me to achieve my academic goals, particularly in this flexible learning setting. Keeping a list of my most pressing goals in a prominent location will act as a constant reminder of the things I should be focusing on. For starters, I should sort my responsibilities into urgent, significant, and less crucial categories. In the event that I get too preoccupied with completing a single task, I will seek assistance in order to regain the motivation to keep working toward my objectives.

 

  1. To fit school into your schedule, what activities will you need to shift or lessen? What did you normally do during those time blocks?

I had to ask my spouse to help out around the house so that I could devote more time to my studies. He plans to do the grocery shopping and cook himself. I used to clean and surf the Internet during such intervals before school started. As part of a practice calendar I made for one of the unit’s activities, I inserted time slots for schoolwork that had previously been filled with time spent doing nothing useful.

 

  1. When something comes up that you must handle, identify what activities in your plan will be replaced so you can do schoolwork?

If I am unable to do my assignments in the allotted time, I will sacrifice my mealtimes and sleep hours to do so.

 

  1. Plan for managing schedule changes, including conflicts, problems, and technology issues. Consider the following:
  • When you have computer, Internet or electrical power problems, what is your backup plan and will this add time to your schedule?

My Plan to Handle Schedule Shifts Is:

  1. To use my Tablet or Phone to get homework done on time if I experience technical difficulties with my computer, internet, or electrical power.
  2.  I will utilize the time I had planned for family, housework, and hobbies on the weekends if I am unable to complete my coursework during the allotted period for whatever reason (sickness, family difficulties, or any change in my job schedule.).

  1. Do you commit to following this plan for achieving your career goal?

I believe that sticking to this strategy will increase my chances of academic achievement, thus I am willing to do so. Taking this trip is a true test of my determination and will to achieve my goals in life. I get that setting and working toward objectives is a proven method of achieving one’s ambitions. What happens next depends on me.

 

  1. Approximately how much time did it take you to complete this Time Management Exercise Worksheet?
    • About what I planned or expected.
    • More time than I planned or expected.
    • Less time than I planned or expected.
  2. If this assessment (and/or other activities in your schedule) took more or less time than expected, describe specific changes you need to make in your future time management planning.

I spent more time than I had hoped on this evaluation. Probably because I was caught off and didn’t realize what was going on and had limited experience with distance education. Since I have never used the APA format before. I realize I will need extra time to get help with any part of an assignment that I don’t understand. Even when I have doubts about my job, I have to keep going. No one warned me that getting a degree would be simple, but I am ready to take on the challenge! I have to make sure I allocate enough time to get help if I need it.
