Question and answer
Describe how you can balance academic expectations and your personal and professional responsibilities.
Balancing academics with my social life creates a lot of procrastination. There could be an assignment due the next day but there will always be that peer pressure to join your friends in whatever activities they may decide to do. [ It’s hard at times, balancing your school work and balancing your social life. There could be a fight between your friends or even a fight between you and your
girlfriend; therefore, interrupting your whole focus on whatever assignment you had been responsible for. One hundred percent of the time you must put your school work first before anything and once it is done than you can balance out whatever else is going on. I have had exams, projects, and major assignments almost in every class. When it comes exam time the plan is to study two nights in a row. The first night I like to call an overview where you look at the material and skim through it so my mind gets used to the information. The next and final day to study I usually study with note cards or rewrite everything down to get it into my head faster. For me, it usually works. Projects are usually big so time must be used properly when completing an assignment like such. Any other major assignments my plan is usually just to start it as early as possible and get the essentials down first so you can branch off and finish the rest of the assignment further towards the due date. Last semester meeting with my teacher became a huge help. Studying was becoming a problem for me in a sociology class and my grades were not up to my expectations. The last test came around and emailing my teacher asking for help lead me to her office the next day. Sitting in her office for about forty five minutes she explained to me almost everything I needed to know. She spread out the material in front of me and taught me in those forty five minutes, I couldn’t have thanked her enough. Leaving her office on my way to take the final exam I was astonished at what professors really can do for you. ]

How do you prioritize equally important goals? How do you maintain flexibility and focus in reaching these goals?
Weegy: Prioritize each of your goals. [ Goals can easily conflict with one another, so having a priority will help you maintain flexibility by allowing you the opportunity to focus more energy and attention on higher-priority goals. Look at delays or missed goal outcomes as benchmarks. Project managers use benchmarks to track and revise original estimates. Keep a record of the original dates or achievements, then add time for completion or make other changes as necessary. If goals are broken down into smaller units, it is easier to manage such changes and remain flexible. Place goals that are beyond your control on hold and move on with other goals. When a goal relies on an external entity for completion, the outcome may be out of your control. Allowing flexibility for these influences will help eliminate stress. When conditions change, add the goal again ] (More)

How can I store and save financial information
Weegy: The first would be saving your information on hardware you have in your presence, such as a USB flash drive or via an external hard drive. This comes in handy because you can control where your information is stored and feel in control. [ However, you could lose your flash drive or have it stolen, which would be the furthest thing from cool. The second would be what’s called “cloud storage.” I’m a big fan or remote server storage, or being “in the cloud” that is, uploading information to a server somewhere else. You don’t have to worry about losing your physical hardware, and you can access the information anywhere with an internet connection. I like to use Amazon S3 Storage because they only charge for the amount you use and it’s minimal. I pay less than $2 a month to store a huge amount of information on their servers, so I’m a pretty darn happy customer. ] (More)

What are some questions you should ask when opening a checking account?
Weegy: The questions to ask are : Will you have to pay fees to maintain a checking account or is the service provided free of charge? If the service is free do you have to maintain a minimum amount and what is it? Another consideration is overdraft [ protection. Nobody wants to write bad checks, but sometimes things go wrong for a reason or another, and when it happens, it is good to have this safety net. Will you be receiving checks from different parties, if yes you should also ask what fees the bank will charge you, should one of the deposited check bounce. Lastly you should find out about the availability of ATM machines in your area. Will you have to go far to find one? What fees will you incur should you use an ATM from another bank.

How do you prioritize equally important goals? How do you maintain flexibility and focus in reaching these goals?
Weegy: How do you prioritize equally important goals? Setting goals for yourself is a part of life. Goals are the way we make ourselves motivated to accomplish steps in our lives. Each person has different goals and dreams. [ However sometimes in life our goals conflict one another. For example say you are planning to back-pack through Europe for a Summer. Yet that goal may conflict with your long-term goal to start college and earn your degree to further your career. It happens. The best method to use for conflict management is to use maturity and wise decision making. You would need to think about the benefits of both goals and determine which goal benefits you the most. Earning a degree is the more logical choice at this point in your life because you are providing a future for yourself. Remember wise decision making and maturity will help you determine what is best for you. There are different types of goals. To prioritize your goals, you need to know what type of goal you have set for yourself. 1. Individual Goals- These are the goals set by yourself. These goals are where you alone develop and implement a strategy for your goal. These goals are for your personal development and achievements. You are the only one responsible for the accomplishments of individual goals. 2. Collective Goals- these goals are set collectively by members of a group. The group will usually meet and talk through the goal. The goal is to benefit all members of the group. The goal usually obtains collective strategies from all members. 3. Short-Term Goals- These goals are usually are less complex and easier then any other goal. These can be simple goals or goals that happen in a short amount of time. 4. Long-term Goals- {One year or more} Keeps us heading in the right direction and can provide a sense of greater purpose. These type of goals require a long process in order to accomplish the goals.
