HCA- Blog 15I am Gloria Liu.  I finished the course ‘How to Get Things Done’ as part of my career education at the Hubbard College of Administration.  It was a very tough course for me, however I got through it. The first thing I learned is control. I realized that sometimes I cannot get things done because I did not control it.  Starting, changing and stopping are the main factors of control; none of them can be left out.  I started, changed but I did not stop, therefore I could not finish the work.  I started, then I stop before completing my changes, that was why I did not do the work properly.  Sometimes, I did not even start.  These are all simply factors but vitally important ones. From this course, I know that intention is the most important factor when giving command. In fact, we do need to give a command or order in order to get things done, or we will end up doing everything ourselves. This will not only make us do too much work, but also it will result in inefficiency no control.  It is easy to give commands to people who have the intention to obey the order.  However, in the real world, not everyone is willing to do what you ask, then that is the time when the intention is needed and needed strongly. Sometimes I found it hard to put intention, not because I do not have intention. I thought I put my intention in the command, and I had a strong intention on it; however, they did not feel it. It is very tough to keep giving commands, but no one listens. It is really annoying.  At that time, I just wanted to do it by myself, but that should not happen and I knew it. I believe that intention can be practiced and also can be trained and that is also one of the purposes of this course. Having strong intention is going to make everything easier in life, either on getting along with others, the work force, or at home with family. Life will be awesome.  Imagine that everything follows your intention!
