Reflective Assignment #1

Reflecting on TGC

Recently I have joined a community service which held in Batu Muda, it was a residence area with low cost flats. My college mates and I formed a group and were given instructions and tasks to convince the residents to have medical check up including BMI, blood glucose level, blood pressure level as there was a diseases spreading within the areas and has caused death. Therefore, we were asked to knock on each door in every floor. In this case, we have developed interpersonal skills in TGS which understand the team dynamics and mobilise the power of teams as I am the leader of the team.

At the beginning, we were all self ready and very confident that we would convinced most of families and individuals to examine their health but then we realised it was not as easy as it seemed. Some of the residents were quite stubborn as they unwilling to leave the house to do check up. Anyhow, this didn’t stopped us from convincing them. We continued to convince them but in a different way of interpreting the purpose of having this programme. Surprisingly, most of the residents started to register and wiling take a step out of their house to check their health. In doing so we realised that changing the style of interpreting by thinking critically and creatively could helped us to define an analyse problems to arrive at effective solutions. Besides, I also developed an interpersonal skills to manage oneself and be self-reliant by reflecting on one’s actions and learning, thus, we changed the way of our interpreting skills.

After hours have passed by, we had finally came to an end. Our programme achieved a successful outcome and it was said to be the most outstanding one compared with last year’s result. This has proved that good results came from a well communication between the members. TGC helped me to develop communication skills which allowed me to communicate appropriately without offending others.

I found that using these TGC skills would help me a lot in my life as it helped me to built up my self confidence and my personality. However, in the future programme, I hope we could use the digital literacy to make use of the ICT and technologies by spreading the community service so that we could gain more helpers and extra hands.

S.M.A.R.T GOALS

S.M.A.R.T

Specific- A specific goal has a much greater chance of being accomplished than a general goal.

  • I want to accomplish my goals which is achieving excellent results in order to obtain scholarship and enter the top best medical school which located in United Kingdom. I have a draft plan which hopefully I will become a gynaecology or paediatrics in 7 years time. The purpose for me accomplishing this goals are to decrease the burden on both of my parent’s shoulder. It is also my dream to assist people who in need. Babies are adorable, they give me a sign of happiness and hope which reminds me to appreciate our lives, time, family, friends and the nature.

Measurable-Establish concrete criteria for measuring progress toward the attainment of each goal you set.

  • In order to achieve my goals, I am saving up my every week allowance I receive from my parents so that I could lessen my parents finance issue. When I have enough amount of money, I would use it for my cost-living in overseas country.

Attainable- When you identify goals that are most important to you, you begin to figure out ways you can make them come true.

  • I have a very positive attitude which always motivate myself to work harder and never give up half way. Double my efforts I require to put in my academics and curriculums. Besides, I will also contribute myself more to the community by volunteering in hospital which also benefits me to gain experience and acknowledge the insight of the hospital. When you list your goals you build your self-image. You see yourself as worthy of these goals, and develop the traits and personality that allow you to possess them.

Realistic- To be realistic, a goal must represent an objective toward which you are both willing and able to work.

  • A high goal is frequently easier to reach than a low one because a low goal exerts low motivational force. Hence, I set my goals high to motivate myself to study hard, work hard so I could be the most outstanding. Some of the hardest jobs you ever accomplished actually seem easy simply because they were a labor of love. Therefore, I always tell myself everyday, ‘Don’t work for money, work for the sake of love, passion.’

Time-based- A goal should be grounded within a time frame.

  • I believe that I could graduate in another 7 years time and become the my dream career.

What is S.W.O.T? 

Strength

Weakness

Opportunity

Threat

It is an useful technique for understanding your Strengths and Weaknesses, and for identifying both the Opportunities open to you and the Threats you face.

What are my Strengths and Weaknesses?

Strengths

  1. Optimistic
  2. Adventurous
  3. Humorous
  4. Honest
  5. Sociable

Not trying to boast about myself but yes, these are the strengths I got in me. I am a person who loves to bring cheerfulness to everyone who surrounds me. It brighten my day after seeing their faces hanging with a smile on it. They called me the ‘dangerous’ girl as I love adventure like mountain cycling, bungee jumping, sky diving, zorbing and intense roller coaster. How can you live your everyday life with boring activities? I love being humour because it’s part of my life. Being honest is essential in order to gain trust from others, creating lies only cause more haters and your status in that person’s eyes drop to zero. People always say that I am a very sociable person which means I can just easily starts a conversation with anyone I just met anywhere I go.

Weaknesses

  1. Astraphobia
  2. Short-sighted
  3. Reckless
  4. Naive
  5. Monophobia

Lightning and thunder makes me feel so insecure and it gives an explosion like a sonic boom, it makes me feels as if you are going to get strike by it anytime. Short-sighted is my greatest enemy compared with the other weaknesses. Therefore, my friends have become my human alarm clock or a human reminder to remind me what to do, remember to bring this and that. Am I useless? I mean my brain😩 I seldom being reckless but still I think it is part of my weakness as I hate being reckless, this define you as flaws which irritates me sometimes. I easily believe in one’s words like literally believe in them then ended up cheated by the others. Thanks😑 The reason that I’m being sociable is because I am fear of being alone. Can you imagine that you were abandoned by the society, leaving you alone in the forest surrounded by darkness?

What are my Opportunities and Threats?

Opportunities

  1. Global and local events
  2. Various academic
  3. Large field of different jobs and careers
  4. Foster relationship between college mates and lecturers
  5. Gain more external knowledges

Everyone deserves an opportunity but don’t misuse it as not everyone has the luck to get a second chance. As a college student, this freshman year is a really important year for me to appreciate the opportunity that will brings me to the next pathway for my future.

Threats

  1. Competitive
  2. People are too creative and intelligent
  3. Higher requirements to enter University
  4. Require more highly-credentialed faculty
  5. Expensive

To be honest, I hate competition. Compete with others is not really my thing but then human nowadays are improving themselves by gaining more knowledge everyday. Universities has set their requirements as high as possible to obtain more intelligent yet workable people. Besides, most of the university fees are increasing day by day as the economy is increasing as well.

Conclusion

After knowing my strengths and weaknesses, I will protect and built upon my strengths whereas I need to redouble my efforts to improve my weaknesses. Besides, I will focus more attention on opening the door of higher education without missing out the golden opportunity which gives me a pathway to my bright future. Working with college mates and lecturers helps to develop well-based measures of learning outcomes, thus, I should be expand my cooperative relationship with them. Overall, your attitudes determines your direction so we need to overshadow our flaws by being selfless, not to give up easily and of course, hardworking.

Identifying Learning Style

Everyone has their own unique learning style to score their goals and succeed in life.

One of my mentor has demanded us to identify our own learning style which we might don’t know that it existed deep down inside ourself. Therefore, he has shared this video to us. Before you get started, get yourself ready with paper sheets and a pen.

Play the video below if you are interested,

I find it quite useful and it helped me to realise my own learning style. The results I got was quite amazed as I was actually okay with any of them, visualise, auditory and kinaesthetic. Anyhow, I prefer visualize more as I feel it is easier to understand and comfortable with it when learning whereas I faced difficulties when it comes to auditory perhaps it is because I am not a good listener or I can’t focus on hearing as I easily get distracted by others.

There’s another useful website which also helps you to identify your learning style.

Images above were my results.

I find it quite interesting as the career I want actually suited my personality. The goal I most want to focus right now is to achieve excellent results and outstanding skills. If I work toward this goal would ensure me from obtaining the high requirements the society needs, it might helps me to be what I want to be, a doctor. In order to gain more knowledge, I search the website to get more useful informations. When the lecturers is teaching, I will focus more on what she’s drawing and writing on the whiteboard. Or I will jot down the significant points of the particular topic. Cooperating with lecturers and having discussion with college mates help me a lot as well.

Enjoy and good luck finding your future career!
