A new semester has begun and students are busy adapting to their new schedules. During summer vacation, some students spent considerable time developing themselves, while othersenjoyed a languid break. I supposeI could say I wasunmotivated during the early part of vacation. I would wake up late in the mornings and avoidgoing out intothe hot sun. I assuredmyself by noting,“It is OK. This will be the last vacation in which I take a break and be lazy.”However, I suddenly found myself ensconcedin my bed and not preparingmyself to do better next semester. I called my friends to ask what they were doing during vacation. They were developing themselves by preparing for the next semester and their majors. They were writing essays, creatingportfolios, and conducting experiments under professors. This information joltedme and I began to prepare for the next semester as well.However, at the same time, I believed that taking a break during vacation and resting up for the next semestermightbe a better choice. I did some preparation, but did not follow my friends’strategies.
Before summer vacation, I did not openthe drafts in whichThe Ajou Globe(The AG) reporters wrote to other reporters to show appreciation for their thoughts and writing.However, on the day thatIreceived thedraft for the 120thissue of the magazine, I was inspired to encourage writers to criticize one another’s work. I asked the reporters towrite articles on the same subject. We compared and analyzed these articles together. It appeared as though they were motivated to write and analyze together regularly.
Both of these anecdotes reveal that there is no singlesolution. The important point is that we can compare and analyze each other’s effortsin order to attainbetter solutions. The perfect solutiondoes not exist. If you prefer, you can adjust others’ solutionsto suit yourself. If you are not interested, you can just proceed as usual.
