I’m taking an online course called CUST104: Business Communications by Saylor Academy.
In sub-unit 1.1 of the course, there are two introductory exercises. Here are the questions and my answers:
1. Write five words that express what you want to do and where you want to be a year from now. Take those five words and write a paragraph that clearly articulates your responses to both “what” and “where.”
- Aalto University
I want to continue living in Helsinki and loving my wife. I want to have started my Computer Science studies at Aalto University and keep doing some freelance website projects on the side.
2. Think of five words that express what you want to do and where you want to be five years from now. Share your five words with your classmates and listen to their responses. What patterns do you observe in the responses? Write a paragraph that addresses at least one observation.
- work on AI
- raise a child
- love my family
- a smaller city
- a workplace that fits my family life
I don’t have any classmates so I’ll just write about my own observations.
It’s good that I want to work on a challenging and important subject. I also want to make sure that my work doesn’t take too much attention away from things that are most important in life, which are family, love and happiness.
