Personal responsibility means doing your own work, study hard, turn in quality
assignments and turn in assignments on time. It’s also means to make wise
decisions that benefits us as well as others. We also need to be responsible for
ourselves before we can be responsible to others. It is important to know that we
are not responsible for things that are not in our control. It is our responsibility
however, on how we react to situations, meaning you should think before you react.
Responsibility is also taking the blame for your mistakes and being held
accountable for your actions.
The relationship between personal responsibility and college success is doing
your own work, allotting yourself enough time to study, turning in your assignments
on time and making sure your assignments are of quality. Those are the keys to
college success. Also, if you are in a team, make sure you and your team meets at
least once a week to make sure you are on the same page. Also, all team
members need to turn in their work in a timely manner and pull your own weight.
No one on the team should have to do your assignment that is when personal
responsibility really matters.
My plan to practice personal responsibility is to:
Read my syllabus thoroughly. It takes a couple of times to read the
syllabus to understand the clarity of the instructions. If you are not
clear of the directions, always ask your instructor.
- Study in an area without distractions. Make sure there isn’t a television
- on or any loud noise
