    Part 4



    Softening the blow of criticism by starting with praise. This seems like a such a simple thing but its very rarely implemented. For example, when I was growing up, my brother played AAU Baseball. My dad was at every single game my brother played. The problem was always the …

    Part 3



    This is probably the portion of the book that I was most interested in reading. I am a very opinionated person and I feel strongly about my opinions but I have always struggled with getting people to see things my way. Based on Carnegie’s views, I’m going about it …

    Part 2



    Let me preface this by saying I may be slightly biased to some of Carnegie’s advice in this section. Let me explain…

    I’ll be honest, I was a little skeptical of this article and I really didn’t know what to expect. Honestly, what could dark matter possibly have to do with empathy? As it turns out, I was pretty wrong! I truly loved the way author managed to relate dark matter …

    Smart Learners



    Before I read this article, I had no idea there was such a thing as a “smart learner”. I always thought you either learned or you didn’t. I did learn something about myself though. I am not a smart learner. I have a few of the qualities such as …

    Week 14 Summary


    It has been very crazy with finals and everything going on. I have finally finished my final project and I have to say, I’m pretty proud of it. I wouldn’t consider myself the most creative person in the world but I really thought about this one. The prompt was saying …
