Ways of Interacting

When I first joined Bangkit, I looked for new friends through various social media platforms such as Discord, Twitter, and others. In addition, Bangkit also requires the use of English in its activities. Initially, I had difficulty communicating in English. However, to overcome this, I used to consume English-language content, such as reading articles and watching videos. Now, I am relatively easy to interact with using English.

Ways of Achieving

When joining Bangkit, I aimed to develop my technical skills in Machine Learning. To achieve this, I attended all mandatory sessions and took the opportunity to interact with fellow Bangkit Cohort and Mentors.

Ways of Learning

One of the Ways of learning I apply is to learn more about the topic before the learning session begins. By doing this, I can prepare myself well and better understand the material to be discovered. In addition, I also use my experience and connect it with the topics being learned. This way, I can strengthen my understanding of the topic and make it more relevant to daily life.

Ways of Working

One of the Ways of working I apply is to learn in the early morning. I can focus better and away from distractions at this time. To implement this habit, I forced myself to sleep earlier, even though I used to stay up late. In addition, I also use time management methods such as the Eisenhower Matrix to set priorities for my tasks. By doing this, I can maximize the available time and improve my work productivity.

Ways of Thinking

At the beginning of Bangkit, I attended the first mandatory session that discussed growth mindset. At that time, I realized that I was more prone to having a fixed mindset than a growth mindset. However, the session opened my mind and helped me understand that a growth mindset also includes accepting criticism with an open mind, having confidence, and taking risks. Since then, I have tried to adopt a growth mindset. With a growth mindset, I can continue to learn and grow.

Conclusion

Through the five ways of adapting, I have learned to interact with like-minded individuals, set achievable goals, prepare for learning sessions, work efficiently, and adopt a growth mindset. These skills have helped me not only in the program but also in my personal and professional life.
