Establishing Personal Goals In Life - 493 words
As the most of my peers, I have been asking myself a question, what is it really I want out of my life? This question has not only been bothering me, but also many college students who are trying to figure out the path which will lead them to their comfortable life. One might ask, what is that comfort that we all are striving for? Is it a state of mind or is it some unknown world that we are so eager to enter? Well, it varies from person to person. It depends on the life that the person has left behind when the decision to go to college was made. I for one would like to obtain a higher standard of leaving, greater education, and fulfill a long time goal of being an engineer. So many years ha ...

My Personal Goals As A Student - 845 words
Already having experience in the business world has proven to me that it is essential to have skills to maintain and improve daily functions. Three skills I'd personally like to improve on are my organizational, time management, and presentation skills. At my place of employment for the past five years, I've noticed that as I gain more and more responsibilities, it becomes harder to remember appointments or find items on my desk. The need to become more organized is quickly becoming a necessity. If I were more organized, I'd spend less time searching for things and would have more time to dedicate to my new responsibilities. This, in effect, will help improve my time management skills at wor ...

Robespierre Maximilien His Reason Behind The Terror - 1,971 words
Maximilien Robespierre: His Reason Behind the Terror No figure of the French Revolution has aroused so much controversy as that of Maximilien Robespierre. He is known to most people as the symbol of the Reign of Terror, a period where approximately 17,000 people died while enduring horrible prison conditions or were executed due to the mere suspicion of being a traitor. The question of whether or not these actions were rightfully justified is an important one. Robespierre seems to have thought so. I, however, will show that the use of terror by Robespierre during the French Revolution was not just or necessary, and that he was acting in his own best interest rather than the States. First to ...

Using task messages made Davis effective because he kept the group moving along towards its goal. Not allowing physical factors into his decisions allowed him to make better choices. Being an emergent leader made Mr. Davis effective because he showed leadership when it was needed. Mr. Davis is an effective communicator because he used assorted task messages, di ...

Japanese Work Ethics Vs American Work Ethics - 2,021 words
Japanese Work Ethics vs American Ethics "For an American to consider the Japanese from any viewpoint for any reason, it is important for us to remember that they are products of a unique civilization, that their standards and values are the results of several thousand years of powerful religious and metaphysical conditioning that were entirely different from those that molded the character, personality and habits of Westerners" ( De Mente, p.19). To understand the Japanese, it is necessary to have an understanding of their religious and philosophical backgrounds. My research suggests that basic ethical values in Japanese business systems are influenced by three philosophical and religious tr ...

Creating A Statement Of Vision - 1,045 words
... r time. As a manager plays favorites with employees, they unknowingly increase supervision on those they perceive as being weak. The weaker employee views this as a lack of trust and feels that his performance cannot live up to the expectations of the manager. Managers usually do not realize what they are doing and often believe they are helping by providing more supervision to the weaker employee. The employee often seeks comfort among co-workers who are more sympathetic, which in turn, tends to bring down the whole team. The strength of teamwork is an important asset to a company pursuing a shared vision. Studies have shown that, "teams can often leverage individual talents into collec ...

The school has not attained its high degree of effectiveness with intelligent students by pushing the average ones into nursing and automobile mechanics (Ravitch, 60). Neither Ravitch nor Ebel see vocational education as a priority in the American school system. In spite of this scarcity of attention by some theorists, vocational education is actually the focus of many current debates. Joe Kincheloe, in his book Toil and Trouble, states schooling is always a struggle over particular ways of life and particular epistemologies (32). The controver ...

Why Work - 847 words
Sometimes it seems as if our jobs are slavemasters, barking out orders telling us when, how long, and where to do our needed task. Why do people listen? Why would someone want to work a graveyard shift with double-overtime? It is not because they want to, as the old utopian adage goes, accomplish their job for the betterment of the community. No, most people work because they are stuck in a financial rut and they are trying to claw their way out. Why else would anyone put himself or herself through the stress, premature balding, gray hair, and hear attack causing action called work? We work not so much because we are slaves to our jobs, but that we are slaves to the paycheck that the job cre ...

The country was ready to choose a person who best represents us as our president. We watched the debates, took part in opinion polls, we wrote checks, and littered our yards with signs that told the whole world that we were "involved." There are many people who base their whole lives on politics. Some let it mingle in their religion, others use it for job opportunities and others use their politics to demonstrate their "moral" code. These same people let their politics divide a united republic, creating a silent war where scandal after scandal is reported which in turn creates chaos and anger, argument, and frivolous witch-hunts meant to create a poor image of our chosen leaders.
