Assignment: TA (Compulsory)
Part I: An Anthology of Programmes on Personality Development

1. Prepare a brief self-portrait of yourself for a professional career. Ans. "I was born in Canton, Ohio and attended Lincoln High School. Ever since I was a teenager, I tinkered with computers. It was my hobby, my passion, and my way of learning. Like most kids I enjoyed computer games. When my folks gave me a computer as a reward for making honor roll my sophomore year, I mastered DOS, Windows, and WordPerfect within six months. I then went on to teach myself programming basics. By the time I graduated high school, I knew I wanted to study programming. From that point on, everything fell into place. My life revolved around computing. By my junior year at Syracuse, I decided I wanted to work for a major software manufacturer. That is why I had an internship last summer at FastTrack Software. I now want to work for a major player so I can be at the forefront of breaking trends and new technology. When my college roommate told me about his start in your department, I hounded him until he helped me get a referral, which brought me here today. I am prepared to answer any questions you may have about my education and experience."

2. List out your short term (1 to 2 years) & long term professional goals (after 5 years). Ans. "In five years I hope to be working with an employer in an increasingly responsible position, that enables me to utilize my talents and work closely with my colleagues in solving important problems. I see myself taking on new and exciting challenges in an enjoyable environment and hopefully this will be with your company."

3. Prepare a self-improvement plan for one of your goals. Plan for one of your goals giving details of an Action Plan along with time frame for achievement. Ans. These are the self – improvement plan with details of Action plan . My goal it to be entrepreneur with in a one year and I m doing work direction of this goal. I m looking to self –improve for this post .There are some action plans for that :-

1) First of all, make sure it is YOUR goal. Do not attempt to do something just because someone else wants you do. Success comes from owning the process and wanting the outcome. Just because your spouse wants you to work at home does not mean that it’s your cup of tea and that you will be successful. Your heart has to be in it all the way. Goals without buy-in are simply wishes. 2) Don’t call it a goal. You have to treat it as a done-deal. You know that most people do not keep their New Year’s Resolutions. That’s because they see them as aspirational, not mandatory. A definite business goal is different. Never forget that success is a mindset. If you Think it, and Believe it, you will Do it. Some people prefer to call goals Promises because studies have shown that people tend to keep promises. As Yoda said, “There is no try. Either you do or you don’t.” 3)Clearly identify your steps to achieve your outcome and write it down. A common methodology for goal-setting is represented by the moniker S.M.A.R.T. (Specific, Measurable, Actionable, Realistic, Time-Specific). Each and every goal should have at least these five elements. Vague generalities are not goals. Wanting to do something is different from planning to do something. When we say goals need to be specific, it needs to have as much detail as you can imagine. Measurable means that it has to have some way to determine whether or not you are making progress or have achieved the desired outcome. Actionable means that you have to be able to “do” something to make it happen. Realistic is important. If you set a goal that you cannot possibly attain, it’s a wish. Goals are realistic and then they build on each other. The last element is time-specific. You must set a deadline so you can determine if you are on track toward success. Learning to set SMART goals will make success become almost automatic. 4) Identify things or people who motivate you. The motivation can either be positive (you are happy when you think about achieving it) or negative (the thing or person makes you mad and you want to succeed to spite them). When your confidence is lacking, look to your motivators to keep you focused and on track. For instance, if you are feeling down and don’t want to tackle that next project on your to-do list, reward yourself with a positive motivator when you complete your task. 5) Create a Plan for success. Your plan should include a written statement of your objectives, your timeline, your ultimate outcome, and what steps you need to take today to put the plan into action. As time goes on, your plan will change and you will be able to identify the next step. Don’t be discouraged if you can’t identify every step immediately. Just plan to go as far as you can and adjust along the way. Knowing “why” you want to achieve what you are aiming at is important. If it’s in writing, you can limit “goal slippage” and keep yourself focused on what your objectives. 6) Review your Plan every day. Use visual reminders, index cards, posters, photos, — whatever works for you. Keep it in front of you daily. Put a copy in your car, on the breakfast table, on the bathroom mirror — anywhere you will be forced to look at it. Make reviewing your goals and your plans a habit as automatic as brushing your teeth every day. The more you review, the more you will be convinced that it can be achieved. Do something every day to move toward your goal. Small progress adds up to big results. If you can spend 5 to 10 minutes each day thinking about your next step, and then putting that step into action your goal will get closer and closer to reality.

So don’t sell yourself short.. If they are not supportive. when is the best time to set a goal? … NOW! Procrastination will not create results. and you just might surprise yourself and make it. Its work could have a great impact into the fields of computer and communications networks. Surround yourself with positive people and look for people who will support your goals. .

Ans. 10) Get started today. self-affirmation works. The most important item is to make sure that you have correct spelling and grammar. Every journey starts with one step. Peer pressure can be a wonderful motivator. A person who is growing is becoming more of the person they were put on this earth to be. it makes it much more likely to be achieved. you’ve lost all opportunity for peer pressure and community support. There will never be a “right” time.. Everyone has within them the power and ability to achieve almost anything if they truly want it and believe in themselves.. Reaching for a goal. or more money. or more talent.. and your journey to success starts with deciding what you want to achieve and setting a path to get there. turn it around and think of all you have to be grateful for. If your goals are secret and no one else knows whether you succeed or fail. You are working toward a better life and you should be proud of yourself. you’re right. stretching yourself beyond where you are is growth. Don’t dream small — dream BIG. so you must use an appropiate way of writing with clear expressions. But caution: stay away from nay-sayers.7) Tell yourself you will succeed.” The size of the success is determined by the size of the belief.
