Dealing with Others
About Goal in Life
You must submit a Graded report before 12 midnight. At 11.55 pm, there is a power trip and your last save was half an hour ago. What will you do?
Just key in point-form whatever I remember, that should get me some marks right?
Nope. Won’t happen, since I always key ‘CTRL+S’ every 5 minutes.
WhatsApp my instructor to ask for an extension. He should be awake!
No big deal, 4 minutes is all I need to finish up.
Save my report in a shared workspace and submit the link first. Maybe I can finish the report without others noticing?
Search my Temporary files for the closest to completion version.
Your colleague that you are close to was accused by the boss of something that she did not do. What would you do?
What? I don’t have time to deal with the problems of others.
Hear her out, then relay the message to the boss.
Ask the other colleagues what happened, and figure out what went wrong.
Take her out for a drink, she shouldn’t have to worry about small problems!
Saw it coming so I already set aside time to be there for her.
Invite her to lunch and find out what was the misunderstanding.
You have won an all-expenses paid vacation to anywhere in the world! But you are to depart in one week. What is the first thing you will do?
Call the sponsor and negotiate for more time to plan my trip.
Bring in the professionals… get a travel agent to plan for me!
I have 3 favourite destinations, so let’s first study the weather, flight and accommodation…
Just wing it… Spin a globe and head to the first place my finger lands on!
Wait, this sounds too good to be true… where’s the catch?
Find the most luxurious and most expensive getaway possible of course.
If you were stuck on a deserted island, what would you bring along?
Duh. A hand phone, obviously.
Food and drinks, at least I can survive a while to figure out how to get off the island.
Notebook and pen, to document my adventures.
Map and compass, to be able to plot my way out.
A friend, so I will not be bored.
Some matchsticks, so I can start a fire to attract attention and get help.
You are at a dinner with friends, but they are glued to their mobile phones. What do you do?
Just order food to share first. I remember what we ordered before anyway.
Call the waiter over and start ordering first, my friends will take the hint.
Initiate a Wefie, that always gets everyone’s attention. They can order after that!
Snap a photo of the menu and start an ‘Order your Dinner’ chat group!
Start a game that fines anyone using his mobile and use the fine to foot the dinner bill!
Whip out some old photos which I always keep in my phone, and start a REAL conversation.
You have just been invited to a party where you do not know anyone.
I guess I will go since the people there are super wealthy.
I had better bring a friend along, just in case it gets awkward.
Perfect! Maybe I will get to meet some cool new people.
I had better find something to wear to impress people. Perhaps get a new haircut.
Should I get something for the host? Would arriving at 8pm be fashionably late, or rude?
Sounds like a great opportunity to network and maybe even get funding for my new start up.
When I am 35 years old, I will be …
…in a job I love, still working hard, but learning new things every day.
…in a high position in my career, making decisions that affect the lives of many.
…retired, of course, and living the high life!
…married happily, have two kids, and buying my second house by the beach.
…a partner at one of the big four accounting firms.
…on my third startup company, after having sold both my previous ones at a huge profit!
Curious about what type of career might suit you the most?
