Essay: End of Term Essay

This post has been back-dated:

When looking at the future my mind quickly runs through thousands of things I would like to accomplish in my lifetime. I want to write several books, manufacture a new type of computer I have invented, create software that can learn any language through interaction with several native speakers and then translate the Bible into that language, start a distribution company in Asia, build a rail and/or high tech navigation system for electric vehicles, build the internet in Asia, build the world’s longest tunnel, start a mission board for tentmakers, start a university in Asia, and many other things. With so many interests, I think I will enjoy doing whatever God has for me to do, but I am also fairly sure that I am going to die wishing I could more.

My long-term goals have not changed as a result of this class, but this class has been responsible for introducing a few new ideas.

My short-term goals include an MBA, and then a doctorate, and raising a godly family of hopefully at least seven. I also want to work in as many different positions as possible so that I can have a broad understanding of the many processes involved in getting idea to product to customer.

The self-assessment section of the profile confirmed my opinion that I have the skills and interest to do just about anything, as long as the person I report to is flexible and open to process improvement. I also have a strong desire to be doing things that others cannot do. If it is something that is easy enough for other people to do, I am not going to really want to do it unless it is something that nobody else will do and it needs to be done.

During this class I have become more aware of my creativity in addition to the curiosity that I was already well aware of. Since before I can even remember, my mother tells me, I have had an insatiable desire for knowledge. While most children have a stage where they are constantly asking why, I never stopped. This curiosity has allowed me to obtain above average knowledge, even though have am below average in intelligence. In other words, I learn slowly but, since I never stop, I have learned a lot.

I was not aware until recently, though, that I could be described as creative. My creativity as a child took the form of a vivid imagination. As I grew older, I was always searching for a better way to do things, but I never associated that with creativity. My imagination has remained strong, and I enjoy writing short stories. I have always enjoyed art and music and probably would have pursued a more traditionally creative career, except that there is not a great need in this area. I need to be needed. There are plenty of people who are capable and willing to do the creative jobs. I take the road less traveled.

The information on “the hunt” and how to find job opportunities was very helpful. The most important thing I learned may have been that Monster is not the only job board on the internet. I also discovered that typing “jobs Nashville” in a search engine does not get you very far. Some of the job sites mentioned in the “Get a Job” pack led to many good job leads.

My strengths include problem solving, creative thinking, communication, system development, and process improvement. My weaknesses are in the area of organization and endurance. I do not like being in a rut. I am constantly searching for a better way to do things or a way to get the computer to handle the mundane.

    Great Forum & Community!

    Besides gambling, I love sports and hiking.

    So that’s my self introduction. Happy New Year to All and hope to get to know you all better…


  3. Hello folks,

    I hope this is the right place to post this – if not I apologize!

    Anyway, I’m still new around here but I’ve been a web designer for over 2 years. I recently finished a new layout for my flash games website and I would like to get some feedback on it from you guys.

    Both positive and negative reviews will be welcome so be honest !

    I put long hours into the header – so specific feedback on it would be fantastic (which animation do you like best?)

    Thank you!

  4. Новый способ давления на кандидата на пост Главы г. Химки

    Новый способ “наказать” тех, кто посмел участвовать в выборной кампании не на стороне действующей власти изобрели правоохранительные органы г.о. Химки.

    Руководствуясь не нормой закона, а чьей-то “волей” сотрудники милиции решили “проверить” все фирмы, внесшие денежные средства в избирательный фонд неудобных кандидатов.

    Начались “проверки” с телефонных звонков – где директор, сколько человек работает на фирме. После чего последовали “письма счастья” с просьбой предоставить всю бухгалтерскую документацию, учредительные документы фирмы, и даже, план экспликации БТИ.

    Такие запросы химкинским фирмам рассылает 1 отдел Оперативно-розыскной части № 9 Управления по налоговым преступлениям ГУВД Московской области за подписью начальника подполковника милиции Д.В. Языкова.

    И всё это в то время, когда Президент дал прямое указание правоохранительным органам о прекращении всех незаконных проверок малого и среднего бизнеса. С это целью внесены изменения в Федеральный закон “О милиции” – из статьи 11 этого закона исключены пункты 25 и 35, на основании которых ранее правоохранительные органы имели право проверять финансово-хозяйственную деятельность предприятий.

    Видно, об изменениях действующего законодательства местные правоохранительные органы не уведомлены. И не смотрят телепередачи с выступлениями Президента.

    Может быть, эта публикация подвигнет их к исполнению указаний Президента, а также к изучению и соблюдению действующего законодательства
