Self-regulation is the ability to manage and control your thoughts, feelings, and actions as you pursue your goals. The process makes you active, intentional learners as you engage in a continuous cycle of planning, performing, and learning, so you can keep growing and making improvements.
Think about Vincent, Cari, and Duane from Section 3.1 in the textbook. They were trapped in unproductive behaviors that led to unfavorable results. For this discussion, reflect on a situation where you have been unproductive or unsuccessful personally, academically, or in the workplace. Think about the steps you took in planning and performing, and what you learned from the experience.
In your initial discussion forum post,
- Describe a situation in which you did not succeed in reaching a personal, academic, or professional goal.
- Why do you think you were unsuccessful in meeting the goal? Think about how your planning and performance contributed to the outcome.
- Describe what you could have done differently in the planning and performance phases for better results or to have achieved your goal.
- Explain the value of paying attention to each phase (planning, performing, and learning) toward achieving goals.
Your initial post should be a minimum of 250 words
