After watching Daniel Pink’s video about the one sentence project I was really excited to come up with my own unique sentence that described myself. One sentence about myself seemed pretty easy at first, but boy was I wrong. Who knew that one simple sentence describing oneself could be so difficult to write. Personally, I really enjoy reflecting on myself and learning more about who I am as a person. That is a big reason why I keep a journal. That is why when we were addressed with this assignment I was really excited. The problem is, as much as I love learning more about myself, I am pretty bad at talking about myself and what I am good at. Because of that, it took me a while to come up with a good sentence that I thought really fit me. I will walk you through how I got to the final product.
Starting with my top three personal strengths was a lot harder than I thought it would be. After taking some time to think about myself I finally decided to settle on personable, supportive, and hardworking.
For my top three talents I thought that I should include drawing, getting things accomplished, and getting along with people. I put a lot of effort and determination into these areas of my life.
I decided for my core area of expertise it had to be basketball because I have been playing ever since first grade. It is practically my life and I still play it today here at Creighton.
The last part that I analyzed was what I can do better than anyone else. This was probably the hardest question to answer. I don’t tend to think of myself as being better than other people, so it was hard to decide what I was better at. I decided that I was better than others at being compassionate. I really care about people and want to make a difference in people’s lives. I do this by showing love and interest towards others. I believe that I have a big heart and love caring for others which is why I landed on compassion.
After analyzing myself and looking deeper than I ever have I finally landed on my sentence.
She was a hard worker with a big heart and just wanted to make a difference.
