REFLECTION & ITS IMPORTANCE TO YOU
PERSONEL ASPIRATION REVIEW
WHY DID YOU CHOOSE TO STUDY FOR A DEGREE
I have been studying in an english medium school since my childhood. In India the education system a bit different from here in UK. The student have to decide if they wish to go for the science or the commerece stream in their 11th standards and only those students who got more than a 70% overall along with good marks in science in class 10th are allowed to opt for sicence in 12th. I was hard worker and always had in mind that I would become a engineer in future. I got 70% aggreate marks and I got 75 in science in paricular, which helped in to opt for science in class 11th. Science was not really a piece of cake instead it was really hard and requires a set number of devoted time for education. I did not realize that my apptitude was not the theories and models, instead my interest was in knoing the concepts and appling to the practical use. I would say I was not a theory person instead I was a practical person. But since I did not had any career counciling as well there was no one to guide me all that so I was working hard though but without any real interest. Then in the mid term when I did not got good marks my teachher called my parents and asked them to have a discussion about my interest anf my future through a carrier councellor, my parents took me a councellor and then was the time when I came to know more about my own self. I also came to kno that the decision I took for choosing science was wrong I am a person who should have taken commerce, I along with ma parents went to the principal and discussed all the details, after hearing all the story she told me something that totally changed my interest. She said there is a solution to your problem but if you promise to work really hard and live up to the expectations. She said though the procedure is that a student has to do either science or commerece in 11th and 12th both the years but you can change your stream from science to commerce in 12th if you think you will be able to cope with the two years of education in one year. It was really a tuff decision to take but I was confident enough to say yes at the same time. I was happy but a little bit scared. I really put in all my efforts worked day and night. Finally at the end the result said it all. I got almost same marks as the students studing the same thing for two years in class 12th.
Thus, getting into a Bachelors of business administration degree was the result of the career counciling which was an eye opener for me to see my life clearly. My father as well as many other family members are self made business man. Taking inspiraion from them I now want to become a successful international businessman and do something which the world should be proud of. This degree will provide me with all the skills and knowledge i need in order to become a international business man. The degree is fast tracked, economical and well managed.
HOW DOES THIS FIT IN YOUR LIFE & CAREER PLANS
The bachelors in business administration is basically the first step in the ladder to my dream and goal in life. In order to become a international business man I had to go through this degree programm.
REVIEWING OPTIONS FOR THE FUTURE
For the future the next step in the ladder is doing masters in business field. Doing masters in UK is a big deal as it requires a lot of money and 2-3 years of working experience to get into a very good university.
For the future I wish to got for either Masters in business in buiness administration or do Msc in Finance. But before doing any of these courses I have to have a two years of job experince after my bachelors.
SWOT ANALYSIS ON MYSELF
A few strength which I possess are:
PERSONEL SKILLS REVIEW 
COMMUNICATION, NUMERACY, LEARNING, IT, INTERPERSONAL, PROBLEM SOLVING.
MANAGEMENT SKILLS BY FAYOL
WHAT MANAGEMENT SKILLS DO U HAVE
“To be skilled is to perform a learned activity well and at will”- (Cotrell S. 2003)
My developed skills are:
Time management skills –
Time management basically means the useful distribution or utilization of time according to our needs and circumstances.
Today, life has become very fast, no one has time for the other and people make excuses for the incompletion of the job because of lack of time. It is a fact that every one is busy in their own world but people should understand the difference between the urgent work and the important work. They have to set their own priorities in life in order to decide which work should be done first.
THE TIME MANAGEMENT GRID
TEST DONE IN APPENDIX
Planning- planning is deciding in advance what to do how to do and for whom is to do. It bridges the gap between where we are and we wish to be. It is required at all levels of management; it is an on going process through out our lives, which is very important from the point of view of achieving the desired goals.
Decision making- it is the process leading to the selection of a course of action among alternatives. Every decision making produces a final choice. It can be an action or an opinion. It begins when we need to do something but we do not know what therefore, decision making is a reasoning process which can be rational or irrational.
Writing skills- In context to communication skill, the other developed skill which I have is writing skills, I can really express my self better in the written part of speech, I have taken part in various essay writing competitions and won the first and sometimes second prize as well. I can pen down my emotions and feeling on the paper very easily, basically while writing I can really go into the depth of the topic.
According to BELBIN’S NINE TEAM ROLE- my developed and un-developed skills are:
Belbin’s Nine Team Roles-
- Resource instigator
- Team worker
- Monitor evaluator
According to test the skill in which I was not good enough are:
Team worker- He is the person who is most aware of the needs of the team, the concern and the needs of the members. I do not feel comfortable working in groups as I feel every person has a different approach towards life and have a different set of ideas, so I do not think they are able to solve a particular problem or can reach to a final conclusion for a problem. Thus I need to develop my negative skill to positive and hence I need to develop this skill of mine.
Implementer- He is a well organised individual, who is good at turning big ideas into manageable tasks. I think leader are also implementers and I do not have the leadership skills in my self, which makes me a bad implementer as well. I am terrible at implementing ideas and plans into action.
Therefore- my developed and undeveloped list is:
Developed skills – Time management, planning, decision making, and writing skills.
Un-developed skills – Interpersonal skills, leadership, motivational.
Some of my developed skills are since childhood from my school days where I had my daily time table for all days of the week which included every thing which I had to during the day, this in return helped me to become punctual and I learnt the importance of time and I understood that once time passes it never comes back, therefore every second of our life is very precious.
Where as regarding my decision making skill, I developed at my work place, when ever I have been given more work to do at one time, the I have to set my own priorities of work, which means I had to take decisions on my own as to which work should I do first keeping in mind their importance and dead line.
As far as writing skills are concerned I can really express my self better in the written part of speech, I have taken part in various essay writing competitions and won the first and sometimes second prize as well. I can pen down my emotions and feeling on the paper very easily, basically while writing I can really go into the depth of the topic and I can write along with thinking about it.

Therefore instead of being an independent learner I had to develop skills in order to become a group member or group leader.
In my college’s lectures we have various in between short quizzes and various group work activities for all the modules. I will take an active part in them and try to be involved to the fullest. In order to develop teamwork skills as well as leadership skills.
I will also request my friends to interact with me as much as they can so that I learn to understand things from others point if view as well.
Motivation process is a part of the teamwork and result of effective communication process. Every individual tries to motivate their co workers and subordinates in the work place in order to achieve the maximum output from them and achieve the common goal .
This skill can be developed only at my college, through my friends as the main motive of all students is to secure good percentage in all modules, I can motivate them by saying some words of encouragement.
