A sense of responsibility

I have realised that there is so much freedom attached to my work. There is a project I have been working at and with that we have to work independently to complete it. Unlike varsity where the normal procedure would be failing if you do not submit your assignment on time, my work situation gives me plenty of time to work and breathe. Our supervisors are often not in the office but we have their numbers in case we need them. They are always available to talk when I need them. I love the freedom attached to my work .It wouldn’t be nice to have a supervisor watching over your shoulder each time.

While I enjoy the freedom attached to my work, I get to learn to be responsible. I often have to remind myself to be committed and remain motivated towards my work. With the flexibility and time given, it is easy to be demotivated and unfocused. I remember one of the speakers from the WOW training who said always find something to do, if you have nothing to do. So when there is nothing to do or when I am taking breaks from my research I practice my computer skills.
