This week was all about finding the balance. I struggled to find my balance this week in terms of juggling full time work and attending the group meeting. Due to work related reasons I was unable to attend the team meeting and thus I was an ineffective member of the group. This was frustrating to me as it meant that I would have little to no input in any decisions and this means that I am now somewhat out of the loop. While my team was busy making decisions to improve our SHV, I was stuck at work thinking of ways that I could not miss any future team meetings. Missing this meeting really impacted me as I felt that I had let my team down as we are usually all present for all team meetings.

This is where time management plays a huge role and I could learn a thing or two when it comes to meeting expectation. Time management is the best solution for balancing work and uni life and that is what I intend to do for the remaining few weeks of the semester.

Finding the perfect balance between work and uni will not only help me make all meetings and other uni related events but also keep on track of all other events in my life. This will help me to become the best teammate that I can be which will ultimately contribute to our collective goal of getting a great SHV.

  1. Hey Scott,

    Referencing, referencing, referencing. Peter has managed to drill that into my head and yet I immediately noticed an absence of it. Already as a reader I'm timid towards beginning of your reflection. Without even reading into it, there's not even the usage of Daudelin's stages of reflection which is expected from everyone! You've even used it last time somewhat. You have a great concept to build upon, and all it really can be narrowed down into is a lack of  the incorporation of Daudelin's structure and we have ourselves the beginnings of an excellent learning journal. But perhaps you have circumstances, overall, there's a lot to be desired but just know you definitely can improve, good luck!

  2. Hi Scott, I am sure your team members understand but yes it is great that you realized that you need to manage your time more wisely so you can make future meetings. Good luck for the next few rollovers! and do not need to beat yourself up too much about not making this meeting just don't miss anymore!
