Accounting Major Second Guessing & Dealing With Criticisms

Accounting Major Second Guessing & Dealing With Criticisms Objectives Work with different points of view, take what is helpful, and discard the noise. (Not designed to increase argument but possibly facilitate more productive debate). Help structure personal goals and use doubts constructively In this presentation we’re going to take a look at a problem from the perspective of an accounting major. Someone who is going to school and has chosen accounting as their primary field. Although we’re talking here to people that have chosen accounting and are in school for accounting, the same kind of thing applies to people that are working within the accounting field and more broadly basically any type of career choice or career path will apply or at least some of these items will apply to it, that problem being the second guessing of the major that we have chosen and dealing with some type of criticism with regards to the major, debate about the major that has been chosen, either from other students or from instructors or from other individuals that we are involved with Now we’re assuming at this point in time we’re thinking about someone who has basically chosen which path they want to go on. Note typically if someone’s going through say high school or undergraduate then we’re talking to a whole bunch of people trying to decide what’s an appropriate major what’s going to be a good major. At some point in time the decisions going to be made and we have to basically go into that process and continue with the decision making process and move forward with whatever decision we have been chosen. Typically at this point we’re thinking about people who have chosen accounting as their major and now are thinking about moving forward in accounting. Note that as you choose a major, as you narrow things down, as you have to do, it can be concerning because we often think about the things that we have given up That’s of just the way the mind is wired. We’re mentally set to be more concerned about the things that we’ve lost than the things that we’re going to gain. With regards to the choices that we make as we go into the choice usually we find that the choice that we have made and the more we think about the choice we’ve made then there’s basically infinite possibilities we have within that choice that we’ve made. We still have a tons of choices to make. Most people don’t narrow down enough and have too many choices and they end up basically getting stuck at a standstill.
