Personal responsibility is a duty or task that you are required or expected to do. Personal responsibility is also one that in which you control the consequences of your own actions. To be successful in college a student must take full advantage of their responsibilities to meet the requirements and do the work that is expected to succeed in college. What personal responsibility means to me is the act in which I am considered accountable for the choices that I make. That being said I cannot blame anyone for my bad decisions but myself. While I have personal responsibilities, school work is more important. To effectively achieve personal responsibilities you must hold yourself accountable for what you are trying to accomplish. You must take charge of your actions by practicing discipline and using time management skills. If you can maintain the act in doing this, it can be reflected into your everyday day life, including college success. Psychologist must be personally responsible or they will not succeed in Psychology. First, to be a successful student one must be self-disciplined. Self-discipline is the training and control of oneself and one’s conduct, usually for personal improvement. In being self-disciplined a student can set goals for themselves by making a plan of what it is that they wish to accomplish in college. In college my preliminary plan is to do the work on time and finish prior to when it’s due therefore, I can go back and make changes as needed. Also to do my housework first including cooking dinner, cleaning the house or go to work and lastly, do my homework. I also discipline myself so that I will not procrastinate on my assignments. Furthermore, it is good to have short term and long term goals so your goals are closer in view and easier to reach. College Grade Point Average was significantly, positively related to perceived control of time, and short term time planning, although significantly negatively related to long term planning. (Mpofu et al., 1996) A short term goal for me is something I wish to accomplish in the near future it can be today, this week, next month or even this year. For instance a short term goal I make is to have all my reading assignments completed before proceeding with my written work. I strive to make short term goals that are attainable because they help me in my success in college. In addition to that, not only are short term goals important in my success long term goals are valuable to me as well. Whereas short term goals can be accomplished in the near future long term goals cannot. Long term goals require planning and time. However, they are important in a career. Long term goals help me think more closely on the career and classes I will need in furthering my education. Careers take time and planning, and these plans will include my long term goals. Second, time management skills are valuable in a successful college student. Time-management is the act or process of planning and exercising conscious control over the amount of time spent on specific activities, especially to increase effectiveness, efficiency or productivity. There are many nontraditional and traditional students going back to college who have other obligations. This may include families and long work hours. The most important thing that students have to remember is to meet there deadlines. One thing that works for me is I make a to-do list and put the toughest task at the beginning and work my way to the end. Also to submit assignments in a timely manner and also stick to the plan that was discussed earlier these things will help any
