I am Alex Edwards, an American student from Tujunga, California on the Associate Degree Program at the Hubbard College of Administration (HCA), Los Angeles, CA.
On the “How to Make Planning Become an Actuality” apprenticeship, I worked with the general manager of a nutrition company to resolve an issue that he had been trying to handle for several months. He wanted to put on a nutrition fair in Toluca Lake, California, but he first needed to acquire a desired location, which he had trouble getting from the start. This gave me the opportunity to utilize what I had learned in “How to Make Planning Become an Actuality,” “Ethics for Business Survival,” “How to Get Things Done,” “Improving Business through Communication” and “How to Get Along with Others” courses in a real-world business situation where things donít always go as intended.
The truth of the matter is that even though I got to drill writing a program while on the course, I never got the chance to write one for another person on a larger scale. That’s where the apprenticeship, as usual, came in to give me the confidence I needed to know I could write a program for any situation in life. So, after getting all the information from the general manager as to what he wanted as far as location, I got to work. I wrote up a general outline of what things needed to be done and classified them according to the six categories (target types) I had learned about.
During the composition phase of programming, something really hit home to me. Even if only one of these target types is missing from a program, it will utterly fail. So, once everything was written, I gave the program to someone to actually execute. Even though this person had never worked on something like this, all he had to do was follow the program and everything went perfectly. For example, one of the contacts that we originally thought would have certain information didn’t after all and referred us to another contact. Luckily, I had a conditional target that took into account whether or not that action succeeded.
In the end, I had acquired the information requested by the general manager by someone following a simple program that I had written. I relayed the information to the general manager and he was able to set up meetings with the owner for the signing of agreements to acquire his desired venue. Many people have plans. These are the short-range broad intentions to expand or progress. Maybe a person wants to be an actor, a doctor or a lawyer. Or, they may aspire just to be a millionaire. All of these objectives are possible for a person to achieve no matter what anyone else says. If a person knows the technology of complete planning and applies it realistically, then ANYTHING can be achieved.
