The phrase 'i do' seem to be misunderstood by many, some feel its only connected to relationship, but unknown to them that is wrong, because in life we daily make decisions that are either wrong or right. Am not saying marriage is excluded but my pioint is that it is not just about you getting hooked to someone but it concerns your entire lfe .
In life we make lot od decisions. Some make them out of fear and anxiety, some out of circumstances surrounding them, some out of familys advice or even friends etc. While some make decisions actually from the lords counsel, persnal view and so many too numerous to mention.
Therefore i saw it important to write on this subject matter i tittled 'BEFORE I SAY I DO'. What are the thoughts that flies through our mind when we are about to make decisions, do we really seek the lords idea or we just heard some fake voice from friends, family members or even our personal view and ooops we take the bold step. And when we fail we either feel depress or put the blame on whoever gave us their opinion. This accusation could be eliminated only if we obey some vital principles am about to list down which will be able to lead us into our desire, sustain us there and make us avoid mistakes as we go on with our lives.
First, we talk about four(4) vital questions that we ask our selves befor saying the hrase 'i do' to any area of life weather marriage, career or anything at all, in as much it has to do with making of decisions. These questions include;
WHAT DO I UNDERSTAND ABOUT WHAT AM ABOUT TO DO?
Do i really have enough and strong foundation for this deision i am about to take or am i just having a soft mind towards a hard decison.
WHY DO I WANT TO DO THIS? If its relationship, why do i want to get hooked? why do i want to be a singer, minister, doctor, engineer, physician? or whatever it maybe, why do i want to do it?
AM I READY,…...

Stuff I Do for Fun

...To be honest I don't really know what to say. I'm just writing this essay to become a member of this website. But if I need to write an essay then so be it. People do different things for fun, and so do I. I may not be too different but the things I like aren't in the same taste as everyone else. For one thing, I enjoy video games a little too much. Believe it or not I can play video games literally all day long. I've been grounded for obsessive gameplay. But that's something I love to do for fun. And again, not everybody is the same, not everyone is not like me. Games I like to play are mostly action; fast paced action. But I also enjoy the good old adventure game or role playing game. With action games it's usually the typical ones like Call of Duty and Darksiders 2. But a good game I will never get tired of is The Legend of Zelda. Another thing I do for fun is read. This is usually a back up for my playing video games. When I say that I mean if I am grounded or nowhere near any video games, I enjoy my time with a good book. I'm a guy and most people find this feminine but I enjoy reading a good romantic novel every once in awhile, but I usually go for science fiction or fantasy fiction. But for me the book always has to have a little bit of drama in it or else I can't read it. Novel series that I read and really enjoyed would be The Vampire Diaries, Harry Potter, and Eragon. One thing that I prefer to do over everything else is to......

Saying "I Do"

...Morganne Truesdale Instructor: Alling ENC 1101.77 June 24, 2013 Essay #1: Saying “I Do” What’s the first thing that pops into your head when you think “marriage”? Do you smell a home cooked meal waiting on the table, after a long-hard day at work? Do you picture a beautiful home with a white picket fence? Maybe you think about a gorgeous white dress, that was altered to fit you just right. Or maybe it’s not white at all because your favorite color is black, and you refuse to be cliché on what’s supposed to be the most important day of your life. Maybe you see half of everything you own being taken out from under you if this whole “marriage thing” goes south, and that’s just not a chance you’re willing to take. Maybe the thought of being committed to one person for the rest of your life frightens you, and all of a sudden that beautiful woman standing next you is looking more like a prison warden, rather than your future wife. Whatever your views or opinions on marriage may be one things for certain; no one ever walked down the aisle, said their vows, and pledged before God and everyone most precious to them expecting to fail. Marriage was not always based on the idea of two people falling in love and wanting to spend the rest of their lives together. In the 1800’s marriage was not just regarded as the joining of two people, but the joining of families, businesses, and wealth. Many women had suitors pre-arranged for them by their fathers. Although most marriages were...

How Do I Learn

...Title : How do I learn? “Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever” (Mahatma Gandhi 1869-1948). Throughout life humans go through learning process. Learning is defined as obtaining information or skills through observation, study or experience. There are different types of learning styles according to Kolb’s learning theory (Payne,E. and Whittaker. L, 2006). Each individual learns in a different way, simply because they perceive and execute information or experience in their own preferred style. Kolb (1984) describes that there are four learning styles which would be Converger, Diverger, Assimilator and Accommodator respectively. I see my-self best fit into Diverger and Accommodator learning styles. According to Kolb, a diverger learner is good at applying concrete experience and reflective observation. A diverger is able to view things from different perspectives and often learn through observation. They also tend to solve problems using imaginations and carries feeling oriented personality. Divergers prefer to be an observant rather than taking part in any situations or issues. Kolb says that divergers perform well in situation where it requires generating ideas such as brainstorming. They often influenced by others, enjoy working in a group, like to receive positive feedback, and prefer to learn via logical instructions. For example, I had an interesting learning curve during my past working experience as a software programmer. For......

I Aint Gonna Do I

...to the world of electronics came during High School with the discovery of electronic hobby kits, Jobs realized that the electric world was not as complicated as it first seemed and that electronics was an interesting field. It quickly became his passion. He began attending lectures conducted by the Hewlett Packard Company (HP). This further fueled his appetite for the field and eventually he found summer employment at HP. It was here that he met future co-founder and co-adventurer Steve Wozniak. 33 Journal of the International Academy for Case Studies, Volume 16, Number 7, 2010 Jobs graduated Homestead High in 1972 and eventually attended Reed College, a small regional liberal arts school in Portland, Oregon. He lasted a semester before dropping out. Though no longer enrolled, he still attended classes that interested him. Not having a place of his own, he frequently slept at the home of friends. Collecting and recycling cans provided him with money and free meals were obtained by walking across town to the Hare Krishna temple. Jobs eventually returned home and got a technician job at the Atari Company, which paid him a mere $5 hourly wage. He was viewed by his fellow workers as arrogant and this caused problems with several employees. As a result, he was scheduled to work the night shift when there were fewer people. This enabled him to sneak his friend, Steve Wozniak into the building so that they could play favorite video games. In exchange for this kind......

Through his booklet he was preaching common sense maxims, observations, rules, and guidelines which he dint possess, a fact of hypocrite. 4, What is your evaluation of the reaction of the Raytheon board of directors? Was the $1 million fine a serious attempt to punish questionable behavior, or was it a slap on the wrist administrated for PR purposes? The board of directors at Raytheon were supportive to Bill Swanson and proved it by their statement “we were not happy with the incident but had become convinced the lifting of someone else’s material had been unintentional”. A cut in pay is a little like a slap on the wrist, the board had to do something and maybe this is the best thing they could do. Cut in pay is a dramatic public stunt to promote companies ethical behavior and maintain its legitimacy. New York Times reported Raytheon raised Swanson’s bonus to $2.8 million in 2006 in spite of ethical behavior being one character deciding upon the bonus. 5, What does this case tell you about corporate governance and ethical leadership? Board of Directors is crucial aspects of governance. The support from Board of Directors to Swanson raise question about their decision making skills. Was Swanson doing a good job in other ways and the company dint want to lose him or CEO and the board had some kind of link. Why was he given massive bonus which was against the Raytheon rules? Are the rule and......

Before I Die I Want to

...Before I die I want to... Before I die I want to be able to do many things that I want to do but I will only highlight a few that I really would like to be able to focus on. One thing that I want to be able to do before I die is to be able to live happy and relaxed for a long period of time. Another thing that I would want to be able to do before I die is to travel to a few different countries or even states for example in particular South Korea and maybe London. Something else that I would want to be able to accomplish before I die is to be at the top position possible at a job in the IT field or some computer related position. Lastly before I die I would like to be able to live life without regrets. The reasoning behind me wanting to be able to live a happy and relaxed life is because ever since I got into high school I don’t think have been living constantly happy life, and I have defiantly not been able to be relaxed because I picked up a job that I almost work every day and have lots of things I have to constantly worry about especially now that I’m in college, and my grades really matter to me now and hoping that I will be able to do well in my classes. Another reason that I would want to live happily is because living happy can help your life span so If I continue on living stressed out and worried about things every day I feel like it can affect my health in the long term, I feel like being able to live worry free would be such a good feeling. I really......

They Say I Say

...The “They say, I say” essay If you have been keeping up with the show “30 Rock” as of late then you probably have very similar views as those who have adopted a rather negative opinion of the character Liz Lemon. However Liz lemon has been judged wrongly and should be seen in higher regard. Her character has evolved into what I can only commend for being phenomenally satisfactory, despite the growing dislike for the direction in which her character seems to be headed. I think it would be nice if the fans of the show could see the subtle life lessons that are being conveyed through the show. 30 rock is a comedy series about the workings of a variety show dubbed “The Girlie Show with Tracy Jordan” told through the voice of its producer Liz lemon. “In defense of Liz Lemon” by Emily Nussbaum strives to shed light on an aspect of the show that not many individuals have realized. After a slew of negative response to the Character Liz Lemon the author aimed to clarify why Liz is not only better than when she first started out but also why her audience find her so repulsive now. Nussbaum explains how in the first season of the show, Liz Lemon was very relatable especially to women of the same age group. She was unlike other female characters at the time which was refreshing. This new take on a female lead attracted countless die-hard fans which could be credited for the shows long run. The author however points out the inconsistency in the belief that Liz lemon...

“Am I a Product of My Past or Do I Have a Choice in What I Do? Why Do I Do What I Do?”

...I believe that our environment can inhibit our options, but the choices we make can enhance our experience within the environment we have been placed in. In my stance on the question at hand I would like to present my take on Skinner’s ideas that, “It is the environment which is responsible for objectionable behavior, and it is the environment, not some attribute of the individual, which must be changed.” and, “A person does not act upon the world, the world acts upon him.” I understand Skinner’s view point, however, I differ from his ideas in three ways: first, we are products of the choices we have made in the past; secondly, our physical environment can be changed by us; and third, our mental environment is influenced by authorities, but not controlled. In the following paragraphs I will use observational learning, instinctive drift, and behavior modification to explain each of my personal views pertaining to the question, “Why do I do what I do?” I have lived in Southwest Kansas my entire life because my parents chose to start their lives here; therefore I am a product of the choice my parents made for me seventeen years ago pertaining to where I live. However, like any environment there are ecological factors to consider such as weather, wildlife, and resources. For example, let’s say I had only previously encountered garter snakes and bullsnakes and had had positive experiences with both, and my parents had never told me to fear snakes. Then one day I encounter...

I Didn’t Do It

...I DIDN’T DO IT Abstract This report is comprised of the three primary values/virtues I believe an Ethical leader should poses in the modern business marketplace. 1. Diligence 2. Reliability 3. Forbearance With each of these values I have argued my position using examples of real life incidents where a single decision lead to tragedy. The research was conducted mainly through legally produced documents from each incidents inquiry into the events which caused each independent situation. I have used moral theory to relate these situations to modern business ethics, this gives practical application to ethical decision making and leadership skills. The summation of findings concludes that the values and virtues required of an ethical leader is far more extensive than I originally thought and is not limited to the primary three that I have chosen to argue. Major financial tragedies like the 2008 financial crisis, can only be attributed to unethical decision making. I believe there can be a definitive list, but not limited to, three primary value/virtues of an ethical leader. In the following report I intend to argue for what I believe to be the three values/virtues of leaders ( as section headings) who possess not great decisions making skills, but one step beyond that into ethical decision making skills. I will argue my position through a brief analysis of situations in which a single decision gave way to a multitude of unethical behaviours and even tragedy......

Before I Die Jenny Downham

...Before I Die by Jenny Downham Before I Die by Jenny Downham is about a sixteen-year-old girl, Tessa Walker, who is dying from Leukaemia and has composed a list of ten things to do before she dies. It is quickly proven to her dismay that her list is more difficult than she had hoped for and the reader experiences, in her first hand account, her last few weeks of living. It is set in England in a town in modern day society. The novel shows aspects of relationships, love and time. It is a psychological novel and a love story that ends in tragedy and heart break. The reason this book affected me so much is due to many factors, however a constant theme through the book is relationships. The relationships between herself and the little things in life, the important things, are what the reader can connect to on a personal level because they’re things most people endure everyday, this consists of: hugging your best friend, talking to your brother, eating your favourite food. This made me feel just how special I am, as the reader knows at the start of the book that she doesn’t have much longer to live. As she is released from the constraints of "normal" life, Tessa tastes new experiences to make her feel alive while her failing body struggles to keep up. The book also makes me think not only about what I have, but what I should appreciate, the things that go un-noticed: The trees, the stars, the air we breathe, these things we can’t live without are yet things that aren’t......

Dubner, define the economic as root to pursue of incentives. The author define an incentive as “a means of urging people to do more of a good thing of a bad thing”. Sometimes these incentives are so irresistible that people are driven to obtain them through a bad behavior. In addition the authors describe some circumstances of cheating.

To better understanding of these behavior the author states that: “economists love incentives....The typical economist believes the world...
