After viewing the 7 1/2 Habits of Life Long Learners, I have the warm fuzzy feeling of a new student in their first semester. I am excited and enthusiastic to start my higher education and this presentation was a great way to keep my motivated to become a life long learner.
Accept responsibility for your own learning really hit home with me. I feel that one of the biggest factors in the success of your education in your own personal drive to learn. I feel that I have that drive. I used to refer to it as being a constant learner, but life long learner has a nice ring to it. I feel that this drive will help me along my way to completing my goal to become a teacher.
An area that I may need to work harder at is having confidence in yourself as competent, effective leader. Currently I am not as confident as I need to be in my skills. I am hoping the skills I learn in my graduate classes will help shape my confidence.
Don't worry though I still have that war fuzzy new student feeling :)
