How might I be resourceful at school? in other places?
In places like school or home, I could be recourseful by being able to get information about a subject from the internet, or I could ask a teacher about something and overall I could just use whatever that is available to me in order to complete my task.
One big habit that I would like to add to my life is to wake up early and perhaps sleep earlier to support this habit. I think that adapting to this habit will be very useful for me because of how it will free up a lot of space in the morning and it will help me do things without rushing them in the morning and I will overall feel better and more energised. I think that just sleeping earlier could mostly help me adapt to this habit but I may also need to slowly get rid of devices at night to support earlier sleeping. A way I could do this is to maybe sleep 10 minutes earlier each day and slowly start waking up earlier in the mornings with an alarm or something like that. Overall this would make me feel much better in the mornings and throughout the day but also, I think that it would be healthier for my mind because the free time in the morning could help clean my mind a bit for the day and help me relax more.
In the personality test I got adventurous and I think that most of its characteristics match me for example I am more of a reserved person rather than outgoing because I don't have a big desire for contact with others and I am more susceptible to mental strain rather than physical strain. I really like to be with others that I know but I don't like big groups of people that I don't know. I like to take risks in things I enjoy like games or other things and I tend to only try hard at things I have a passion for.
One idea I found in this article was that people who have the habit of not trying and not putting much effort, its the mediocrity that defines who they are, but for people who have personal excellence, that is what defines them and it is how people will remember them as. I found this interesting because I never thought of it as it is how people will remember you.
This article made me think about how important personal excellence really is and how others can really affect how motivated you stay.
This helped me understand that comparing with others isn't what you have to do to see whether or not you are excelling at something, but that you are the one who makes the call on what is excell and what is not.
