What major personal, professional, or academic obstacles do you have to overcome to be successful in school? What are some ways you might work around these challenges?
The obstacles I will have to overcome to be successful in school are mostly personal. I have so much to do in my personal and professional life and it’s mostly because I don’t want to let other people down. I believe I will have to find the ability to say “no” to the people in my life when they ask or expect me to do so much that I don’t have time for my assignments. Learning how to overcome that obstacle will lead me in the right direction as it ties in with my professional obstacles as well. I will have to learn to tell my supervisors that I can’t work overtime if I have homework to complete or a class to attend.
