  2. What would you do if you had no limit to your resources or skills?
  3. Write down your role model -- someone you have read about -- or someone from your daily life. Make a table with two columns. In the first column, list three traits/resources that are common between both of you. In the second column, list three traits/resources that the other person has but you don't. How would you go about attaining these resources? Write down your plan.

Solution:

  1. A, C, and D.
  2. Think about the things you could accomplish with no limits on resources and skills. Does this give you ideas about what you can accomplish with the resources and skills you now have?
  3. Some traits you may find you have in common with your role model may include similar career goals and the differences may include resources available to attain those goals. Your plan should include ways to attain the traits and/or resources your role model has that you do not have.
