The freedom of autonomy
The other day I was reading over the chapter of "autonomy" and the first thing I did was look up the word autonomy, because honestly I didnt know what it meant and plus I was curious. When I found out what it meant "independence or freedom" that like sparked this wirlwind of things of what the chapter could be about. I was thinking "okay maybe this is about the freedom of doing what you want to do, to self motivate you" and I was somewhat close. When I started reading the rest of the chapter and Pink was startig to go into how companies have been florishing because they have given there employees certain days to fix a problem on software or there own project and many thiings where coming out of it, like Google creating all their side branches like Gmail etc. Then it hit me. As seniors we have a responibility to set an example for the rest of the school and try to rub off on them and think that a way we could leave our mark on the school. Is to try to teach the students what we know about things. I was thinking we could have some sort of like "session" or whatever you want to call it for some students. I dont know if it could actually work but it was just a thought of mine.
