Self Mamagement using the ABC model

Self management is a organized approach to achieve academic and personal goals. To succeed academically, professionally, and personally, we need to manage our feelings, behaviors, and thoughts in ways that contribute to our goals. However, before we can accomplish specific self-management goals, we need to be able to identify our feelings, behaviors, and thoughts, distinguish among them, and recognize their interrelationships. Achieving success by managing you ABCs- Affect, Behavior, and Cognition. Using the ABC's you can increase your motivation, save time and end procrastination, improve your grades, strengthen your relationships, communicate more effectively, raise your self-confidence, and increase positive feelings, behaviors and thoughts. In order to use and benefit from the ABC Model we need to be able to think critically and motivate ourselves consistently. We can improve our motivation, time management, study habits, relationships, self-esteem, and other areas of our lives by changing the ABC interactions that comprise them. Whether we are dealing with a particular problem or just trying to improve our well-being, the ABCs are involved. Once we have identified the precise feelings, behaviors, and thoughts, the interactions among them, and determined the component we want to change. Only you can determine the importance of your actions.Friends and family have their opinions, but they dont really know what you truly value. If an action will help you achieve what you value, then it's important and you would be crazy not to do it. Only you can determine the urgency of your actions. Others will set deadlines for you but these external finish lines wont be motivating unless you make them personally important.

Many people claim their lives would be better if only circumstances were somehow different. When our focus is on…...

Today’s consumers are well-informed, social media-savvy, and likely have two or more mobile devices. They are more demanding—expecting current and perpetually shifting new channels, such as mobile and social, to deliver an exceptional customer experience. But it’s the dynamism of this change and conversation that is forcing marketers to re-think their craft. In an increasingly digital world, customers have a voice in their relationship with your brand, communicated through multiple channels, freely expressing their satisfaction or dissatisfaction with their experience. As a result, marketers must put the customer at the center of their business, or risk not just negative Twitter commentary, but ultimately lost customers.

...suggest that certain people are predisposed to certain outcomes based on life behavior. Others say that it all boils down to how one person metabolizes alcohol compared to another person. Only future research will provide an answer and, hopefully, a cure. E.M. Jellinek was one of the earliest and most recognized authorities on alcoholism during his era. His work on alcoholism was the first of its kind to establish stages of alcohol dependency. Jellinek proscribed the three stages of alcoholism, which are separate and distinguished by drinking styles: Pre-alcoholic drinkers drink to relieve workday or life stresses. Prodromal drinkers may have blackouts or memory losses. Crucial drinkers distinguish themselves with a total lack of self-esteem and control. It is not uncommon to see people in these stages in the daily bar environment. Many of us have gone to a drinking establishment and observed people who come in and begin to complain about work or something in their personal lives. Then, as the evening goes, they begin to stagger while walking and to rock back and forth while seated. This type of person will drink until someone intervenes or drinking more becomes impossible. Treating alcoholics is particularly challenging for the substance abuse rehabilitation professional (SARP). Alcoholics, especially those that became addicted early in the life, are very crafty in terms of avoiding treatment or denying they have a problem. It is not usual for alcoholics to......

...Self-esteem, according to Introduction to Psychology by Dennis Coon, is defined as regarding oneself as a worthwhile person or a positive evaluation of oneself1. This study focuses on the examination of African American adolescent self-esteem based on the independent variables of parental marital status, income, and family structure. Is it possible that these variables could affect a confidence that is supposed to come from oneself? According to Mandara and Murray, these variables greatly affect the self-esteem in African American boys and girls in different but significant ways.      It was important for me to choose an article that I could relate with and also that interested me. I found this article to have both these qualities and also be the most accurate with several tables and outside references to make it as comprehensive as it could be. I found the material easy to read and understand as well. It also stood out because it was narrowly focused on a specific topic with specific factors. I found other articles that were so broad, I could hardly imagine them having accurate results.  Once I chose this topic, the articles available to me were few and far between, which I feel is too bad because it is an important topic and before we can begin helping those adolescents who are lacking self-esteem, we must first find out where the problem originates. Having grown up in a single parent, middle class income family and being the oldest of two children, I feel that I can now......

Behavior Self Management Contract

...BEHAVIORAL SELF – MANAGEMENT CONTRACT J. Bellamy 26 October 2013 1.) Target Behavior – I would like to obtain an “A” grade as the outcome of my time spent in Psychology 103 - Introduction to Psychology. 2.) Baseline - At present, I spend 2 hours per week in lecture on Thursdays and generally spend an approximate additional 2 – 2 ½ hours per week studying the current chapter material. This includes but is not limited to reviewing the recorded lecture materials as well as reviewing the book chapter and my notes. This review is usually very haphazard and at the last minute; i.e., Thursday morning before the test that afternoon. My present study habits have resulted in my obtaining a “B” grade, thus far. This grade has met my expectations as far as outcome for the level of preparedness I have committed. 3.) Goal – I would like to work on prioritizing my time for Psychology study work. I intend to achieve this goal by setting a 1 hour block on Wednesday evening between 9-10pm, and an additional 2 hour block on Friday from 12 – 2pm to dedicate to Psychology each week. These times will require me to study the material while it is still fresh and every week, not just before an impending test. This plan will also allow me to set a firm schedule for my studying and prevent “cramming” by making the times planned events. With the planned out blocks of time, studying will not be “last minute” and will result in my obtaining the “A” grade I would like in......

...of patients, but around the needs of the system itself. Patient-centered care is a quality benchmark actively sought by medical care professionals, eager to deliver dignified care and re-establish patient satisfaction. How do we define Patient-centered care and its goals? Patient-centered care treats the patient with dignity and respect, as one capable of making informed decisions and with the rights to express needs and preferences in treatment and expected outcome. Patient-centered care is based upon communication and involves both patient and their families in the treatment options and potential outcomes. Patient-centered care involves the patient in all aspects of their care and empowers them to seek the best solution for management or treatment. It moves the medical practice away from minimal communication towards open communication. Physicians in patient-centered care practices ask open-ended questions, encourage the mutual exchange of information and seek feedback from the patient to ensure that communication has been achieved. Patient-centered care addresses patients’ concerns, provides ample communication and resources to alleviate concerns, shares information and treatment options with patients and investigates their understanding of their illness, diagnosis and treatment options. Patient-centered care also addresses the physical and psychological aspects of the visit and treatment. It removes a medical delivery model in which the patient, often in......

...a person who is self-aware is one who has a deep understanding of his emotions, strengths, weaknesses, needs, and drives. Atwater & Yammarino (1992) states that self-awareness stems from the ability of combining the assessment of the evaluation of the self by others together with one’s self-evaluation. In another words, self-perception as compared to what is perceived by others. On the other hand, Mayor & Salovey (1995) suggest that self-awareness is to be conscious of one’s mood and thoughts about that mood. Self-awareness helps in elevating effectiveness, it roots and fosters the virtue of leadership. All leadership begins with self-leadership and self-leadership begins with knowing oneself. By definition, management is one individual achieving results through others. As suggested by Goleman (2011), self-aware people are self-confident people with a strong understanding of what they are capable of and what they are not. Self-awareness generates the kind of confidence to take the required action when new opportunities are presented. With self-awareness, we become more understanding of others and it is this understanding that leads to effective communication. Being self-aware requires reflection by oneself or with others, in both good and bad times. A better self-understanding will allow one to have more control and intuitive decision-making capability, have the flexibility and ability to effectively meet and handle challenges, have better communication and......

Self-Management in Chronic Illnesses: a Concept Analysis

...Self-Management in Chronic Illnesses: A Concept Analysis Dianne Rinehardt Chamberlain College of Nursing NR501: Theoretical Basis for Advanced Nursing Practice November 2015 Self-management in Chronic Illness: A Concept Analysis Globally, the human species is experiencing longer life-spans. As the number of persons with extended lifespans increases, so does the prevalence of those living with chronic illnesses. With the inception of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) in 2010, there has been a paradigm shift in the focus of healthcare from treatment to prevention. The origin of this paradigm shift occurred when traditional provider-directed/patient compliant approach failed to produce the outcomes that were expected (Udlis, 2011). Transforming healthcare from a treatment modality to one of prevention assumes that each person will be actively engaged in the prevention of chronic illnesses. Dorothea Orem’s self-care and self-care deficit nursing theory is based on the premise that people are naturally inclined towards self-care and that nursing should be focused on identifying and correcting any self-care deficits. Orem defined self-care as, “care that is performed by oneself for oneself when one has reached a state of maturity that is enabling for consistent, controlled, effective, and purposeful action” (Orem, Taylor & Renpenning, 2001, p 149). Orem’s self-care and self-care deficit theory is directly applicable to the concept of......

The Self

...The Self Keepa Secret PSY/400 February 6, 2011 Ingrid Lewis The Self Philosophers and Psychologists have been debating and pondering the question of what exactly constitutes the self for many years. Considering that there are certain concepts and aspects that makes up what psychologists refer to as “the self” in the social world is definitely worth taking a look at since defining what exactly it is can help us understand our roles in society and move us a little closer to understanding our motivations, desires, and why we do the things we do. In this essay we will examine the concept of self in the social world and discuss how I apply the self to my own life. In addition we will also examine the roles of self concept, self-esteem and self efficacy, and how these concepts build a framework for my conception of self. I will also describe two social experiences that affected my personal development in an effort to help the reader understand why I am who I am today. Self in the Social world The concept of the self cannot be found in any book or dictionary. It is not something any one person can concretely define. It cannot be explained in third person because the self is an individual topic. I can’t decide for another person what the definition of self is for them, especially as it relates to their experiences in the social world. I can only decide what self is and how it manifests itself in my own life based on my own experiences, thoughts, feelings and...

Self- Management Behavioral Contract

...Self-Management Behavioral Contract I understand that change is necessary in order to make room for improvement. Self-improvement is something that I continuously work towards, not for anyone else’s happiness but my own. Presently, my goal for myself is to gain healthy eating habits and lose weight. Although I do not see myself as “fat” I do see myself as overweight and there is definitely room for change.  My ultimate target is to lose up to fifteen (15) pounds and change my eating habits. After losing the weight I would like to continue my eating habits in order to keep a healthy lifestyle. In order to reach my goal I have determined that I will have to change eating patterns. First, what I eat and how much I eat at one time. Sadly, I have a habit of eating military style, at least that’s what my brother who is in the military calls it. I often times eat quickly, which is not a good thing. I have learned that eating fast is not healthy. Eating too fast does not give the brain enough time to send a signal to the stomach that I am full. My intake is faster than the signal and by the time I am finished I am stuffed. Another behavior that needs to cease is the time of the day that I eat. I have a habit of not eating much during the day, but at night eating very late or waking up in the middle of the night for a snack (chocolate ice- cream).  I would love to increase the amount of time that I work out in a day. I find my schedule to sometimes be so busy, and when it......
