Equally as important, I have learned and embraced this Chinese Proverb "If your vision is for a year, plant wheat. If your vision if for ten years, plant trees. If your vision is for a lifetime, plant people." So here it goes.
About 2 months ago I discovered the Myers Briggs personality test and learned that my letters are ENTP, which according to Buzzfeed’s animal version says that I am a parrot. It also goes on to say that ENTP’s are rationalists who are outspoken, resourceful and like to generate ideas. Bingo that pretty much sums me up. http://www.buzzfeed.com/summeranne/whats-your-animal-personality-type
So how will I do this? First, I will substitute my “go with the flow” approach with a more calculated, scheduled and structured one. Yes, I know what you're thinking, but things don’t always go according to plan; however, that shouldn't derail you from always having a plan A. Second, I am going to continue studying via www.coursera.org, while I prepare for graduate programs. Finally, I plan to save more money with the goal of buying more time.
So if you’re reading this, what is your personality and how can you improve this New Year?
