Self and Self Control

SELF AND SELF CONTROL CASE STUDIES Case Study 2 – Susan: Online Learning Susan in an undergraduate learner at an online university. She has a full-time, dead-end job and, as a single mother, she is responsible for the well-being of her two young children. When she began her online education, Susan was highly motivated and inspired by the prospect of earning an undergraduate degree in psychology so she could pursue a career, not just a job, as an addiction therapist, and someday earn a Master’s or PhD in psychology. She set high standards for her course work, monitored her investment of time into her study schedule, and boosted her willpower by learning more about possible psychology professions that require higher education. At first, Susan read all the instructions in her course, reviewed all the assigned readings, and paid attention to grade feedback from her faculty. Recently, however, she really misses time with her children, friends, and relaxing while watching TV. Susan has discovered that it is much faster for her to write discussions and papers off the top of her head. She can answer many of the questions using her good fast brain, and she’s willing to take a slight hit on her grades for not having all the citations and references included. This “just get it done” mindset enables her to complete her course work and get back to her children and personal life. Susan’s thinking now is that her addiction clients won’t ask her what her GPA was in school, and she never aspired to be the world’s greatest therapist. She just needs to get her degree so she can have a professional career, make more money, and have a better life.
