Tenaciousness is a skill. What are the behaviors that you have used (or developed) to keep up with the requirements of this course?
I kept up with the requirements of this course by making sure I work ahead of the due dates on the assignments. I also read ahead on the requirements of the assignments days before I attempt them to make sure I can average how much time it takes to complete the assignments. Some assignments can take a day while others take a few hours.
I haven’t felt like giving up yet, but it did have a time where I had to do a very challenging assignment. I pulled through the assignment by contacting the professor, and we came to the conclusion of a solution to the problem I had in an assignment. I went through with the plan and succeeded with the assignment. You always have to try different alternatives to get to your goal if it seems unreachable. I do feel like a developed a tenacious attitude over the past two months because this course has required me to do constant assignments over the week period instead of just one day a week. This is a big task because I have to organize my life around the ENT3003 due dates.
