Having an imagination is necessary to get deeper in the story, and a good memory is also required to tie the pieces of the story together. And of course an artistic sense to appreciate the beauty of the author’s writing. Nabokov states “Since the master artist used his imagination in creating his book, it is natural and fair that the consumer of a book should use his imagination too.” The reader needs to also understand and appreciate the language used by the author. He needs to pay attention and notice the details in a novel and not just the general storyline. He needs to read with an open mind regardless of other people’s judgment of the novel.
Utopia Thomas More’s ‘Utopia’ challenged Capital Punishment and Marriage convention in 16th Century England to innovate societies values into a Utopian civilisation. More has realigned societies values in law and marriage in order to shift beliefs and virtues according to his vision of Utopia. The implementation of these values such as fairness, equality and spirituality will see the breaking down of socio-economic divisions and ultimately a more free flowing society that accounts for everyone, in Utopia. These shifting values reflect contextual concerns of a just legal system and loyal marriage conventions. Thomas More poised a strong opposition to the legal system in 16th Century England that was centred on capital punishment.
If at any point they failed, they would see this as a big mistake and give up and have a lack of motivation. It can also be argued that working class children do not get the support of their parents, this is because many of the parents believe that they survived without an education, so believe that there children can do the same. Working class families can also lack in support in terms of if the child fails a particular exam, they would not give them positive feed back on how they could improve they would improve. Whereas, it can be argued that higher class families have more motivation and the parents also give the support to the children that is needed. This would have a positive influence on the child’s education as it would give them hope and not give them an opportunity of giving up.
Sin #3 Being confused by naysayers Naysayers can destroy the momentum of the balanced scorecard. But they can also strengthen its implementation with all their questioning. Employees may not like the idea of a balanced scorecard because it holds them accountable, it highlights what they do and don’t do, its another thing to do, amongst other reasons. So management should anticipate this reaction and continue with the implementation. Sin #4 Moving with urgency and rushing to enterprise-wide implementation Corporations should not implement a balanced scorecard throughout the entire organization at the same time.
He tells that he wants to further explore "through the mud and slush of opinion, and prejudice, and tradition, and delusion, and appearance." Through this process, he will find reality. He believes that real literature and only literature is the best way to be able to bring out the intellectual potential of humans. I agree with the views of Thoreau. I myself, try to live life in it's simplest form- although sometimes it is difficult to try and not get caught up in the baggage of every day life.
Only through love may we really find true happiness in life. I chose this theme because William’s message about love stood out the most to me. I believe William’s goal was to emphasize this message of love. William’s focus on love in his final stanza signifies his main point. Throughout this poem, Williams attempts to convince the reader that society needs to stop focusing on microscopic things that don’t matter and just live life to the fullest.
Sometimes you have to do something bad and get into some trouble, to better your life so you learn from your mistakes. You have to get out and experience new things. Acceptance is not a bad thing but you won’t get anywhere in life if you don’t ever try anything new to make your life better. Different types of people do different things. Those who accept themselves for who they are and those who strive to better themselves in every way.
All their worried about is their vision and how they are going to get there. For society this is bad because the world becomes selfish and goes against all measures just to make one self-happy. Eventually, society becomes uncontrollable because these individuals do what they please. Lastly, society becomes more insensitive. If one’s doing what they please their not caring about how the next person feel, their main focus is making themselves happy.
The first one is that individuality means more than claiming independence, it means achieving it by acknowledging the influences that have shaped my thinking, by sorting and evaluating my ideas and attitudes, and finally by choosing the best ideas by resisting the pressure of habit and by changing the ways that I think because the evidence tells me to do so. The second subject that was significant to me was how to distinguish a problem from an issue and how to solve them. Solving a problem means deciding what action will change the situation and make it better, whereas solving an issue means deciding what belief or viewpoint is the most reasonable. The third subject was discussed in chapter 8 and taught us how to investigate a problem or issue. According to Ruggiero (2012), “It means getting information others overlook by searching in ways and places that never occur to the uncreative.” (p.138).
Reactive people, on the other hand, focus their efforts in the Circle of Concern. They focus on the weakness of other people, the problems in the environment, and circumstances over which they have no control" (p. 83). It means that he suggests us to actually work on the problems and thus influence the conditions rather than worrying about the problems. I was a reactive person before. I like to complain the problems to my friends because I was stressed out and being too worried, but I never thought about to change the conditions practically.
