EDUC 7104 Developing Successful Performance



“Some people are born with the gift of being happy for the moment, but most of us need some sort of plan to give our lives coherence. And since human beings are mostly virtuous, we need to feel good and useful, that others are happy round us, that no one suffers through our doing. All this besides being warm and fed, and healthy, and occupied, and a dozen other luxuries. Small wonder that happiness is a fitful state.”

Nan Fairbrother, An English Year


How can we develop our own plan for success? How can we manage our own performance as professionals? Who can help us learn? What can our experiences teach us?
