Page 9: Conceptual Application Project-Ginny Flannery

Being a college student I have been assigned many papers and projects over the years of my

schooling. During my college experience I have been forced to take some general education

classes that I have had no interest in what so ever. The courses I have taken that I have had interest in

I have always received great grades as well as information I still remember. Recently experiencing courses with my lack of connection I have grown to struggle with papers and projects that I never

had a problem with before.

Page 11: Conceptual Application Project-Ginny Flannery

Last semester I was working on a final paper for a class I had no interest in and found myself very frustrated. I started thinking back at my other classes I have over

achieved in and they have always been classes that I have had an interest in. I even looked at my past transcripts and it was clear that there was a connection with my interest in

a subject and how well I had achieved.

• Isn’t trying to prove a Theory

• 2.) Away from schooling you can apply this theory to your work life. People who have an interest in there jobs as I do tend to put more effort and time into their jobs. By putting more effort and time into your job you will Achieve more in your work.

• You can apply this theory into your personal life by taking a look at your hobby or sport of interest. For me that is soccer and I put much more effort and interest into soccer than chores around the house. Therefore I am a higher achiever at soccer than at the dishes or laundry.
