Draft 3

In Atul Gawande: Want to get great as something? Get a coach, mainly talks about coaching. Gawande Explains how having a coach can lead to better choices. He also explains how when people learn something and it doesn’t require them to have a coach anymore they have to start relying on self teaching. According to Gawande in order to be better at what you do you need a coach to observe and critique your work. Out of the three Ted talks that I experience I feel as though Gawande is the best choice for my response.“Turns out there are numerous problems in making it on your own. You don’t recognize the issues that are standing in your way or if you do, you don’t necessarily know how to fix them.And the result is that somewhere along the way, you stop improving. And I thought about that, and I realized that was exactly what had happened to me as a surgeon.” Before I even became a college student I was only doing one of these things that Gawande brings up, which was self teaching. For example when I started to get interested into YouTube I wanted to make a YouTube channel. However, I knew nothing about YouTube and how to become YouTuber so I went out my way and looked up a lot of videos and did a lot of research on how to be a YouTuber. That was just one of those concepts that I had already in the books before I got to college.

I never really did good in english and this semester I decided for that to change. Luckily I was assign an english coach who turns out to be very helpful in making me a better english student. He does exactly what Gawande talks about and observer and critique me. Providing me the sources I need to make better choices into becoming a better english student. I can already see improvement in my journals because of coaching. I’m starting to response to question better and elaborate on what I mean more than I could before.“But it’s the small things that matter. “Did you notice that the light had swung out of the wound during the case? You spent about half an hour just operating off the light from reflected surfaces.” Before getting coach by Drown I had bad habits that he saw and told me to correct. For example I was already a slow reader and a slow typer which was holding back my ability to be a great english student. I didn’t even know that was one of the reason holding me back until Drown pointed it out. To fix my problem he suggested that I use speech dictation while I practice my typing so I could type faster. Therefore I would be wasting time trying to fix my typing when there’s work to be done. For reading he told me that I just have to read more to improve my reading speed.

To be a citizen of this college you have to be willing to interact with other. Not just with the people you already know or the people that your friends know so you feel comfortable to talk to them because there’s a sense of fimilurality. I’m talking about the people that are total strangers to you, go up to them and introduce yourself because you’ll never know what type of opportunities that interaction could lead too. This could mean a lot to certain people, that simple “Hi how you doing can really make somebody’s day. That’s why when we got to do artifact #3 for homework I was kind of excited. It gave me the chance to try something new and meet new people. Now I’m just rambling here but who knows, I could of made someone feel special during that assignment. I know I would be because the fact that someone choose me to be interview makes me think that I’m that interesting enough for that person to want to interview me.

I feel as though the workload in high school was a lot harder than college. If you think about it you had 8 classes 6 of them you probably actually got homework in and 2 of them that you were assigned homework in ever night. For college you get 4 classes or 5 if you hate yourself and even in those 4 classes you probably only get homework for 3 of them. I feel as though for highschool the seriousness is not as stressful as college. Sure it was a lot of pressure in highschool to get to college but in college there’s not joking around because after this you have to find a job and if you don’t do what your supposed to do you find yourself wasting time and money. Same for commitment, there’s more of a commitment in college than there is in high school.

If I had the chance to go back in time and alter things, I wouldn’t. I’m perfectly fine with the way things are the good and the bad. However if I had to choose hypothetically speaking I would of fixed my work ethics back in highschool make things more easier for myself.

Have any of the skills we’ve worked on in this class transferred to other classes? Or your professional life (some of you may well have jobs on or off campus). The skills we’ve worked on in class most definitely transferred to other classes. For example, one of the things we worked on this year is to be able to handle the different work tasks that we get assigned to us. Sometimes we get three different assignments in one class and I’m able to handle that because of english.
