The skills I currently have is Teamwork and Working in Diverse Environments, Problem Solving & Critical Thinking, Enthusiasm & Attitude and Flexibility & Adaptability. I used Teamwork and Working in a Diverse Environment to work on the human knot. I used Problem Solving & Critical Thinking because the human knot wasn’t easy to undo the knot and I had to think of ideas in order to untie ourselves. I was able to adapt towards the activity because where ever I was in the circle, I could adapt to that position. I was enthusiastic during the activity and I tried to encourage my other peers to solve the human knot. 

Discuss the skills that you would like to work on and what you can do to improve or practice them so that you are employable in the future.  

The skills that I would like to work on is Time Management and be able to Accept Criticism and Feedback from other people. The ability to be able to manage your time is a very important skill. If you are able to manage your time properly, you can be more successful in the future. I have tried in the past to manage my time, but I have always been distracted by watching videos on YouTube or playing video games. I will try to discipline myself by doing my homework before watching videos so I don’t plagiarize and get a low mark on an assignment. Another ability I am trying to develop is to accept Criticism and Feedback from other people. When I do something wrong and someone tries to correct my, I usually ignore their advice because I think that my way of doing something is the right way. This has happened multiple times in the past and I have made the same mistake over and over again. Next time, I will try to listen to other people’s advice so I can become a better person and not make the same mistake twice.
