In our article “Towards a new concept of hobbies”, we presented a broad view of hobbies, to include all the person’s favorite activities, including natural (serious) activities as well as sports and leisure activities. At the forefront of serious activities (learning) and (work).
The love of work is inseparable from the “love of knowledge”; Given that “work” itself is a form of “learning” and a degree of knowledge. We can look at work as an application of knowledge, and at the same time a product of it. When it comes to mastering the work, it is a higher degree than just doing it, and the connection between mastery and love of work is not hidden. The one who is perfect for his dedicated work is the one who is related to his profession and field, who is passionate about it, and not the one who performs his duties at most out of duty, if he is not obliged and obliged to do so. .
In our use of the new concept, through the application of the ASC model, we have continued to emphasize the interrelationship and synergy between knowledge and action, and usually larger relationships appear between them as the level of the user progresses. When we use the model in the secondary stage, the students’ attention is drawn to the available relationships between their cognitive preferences and their future professional choices, but the model provides them with a very important middle ground, which is the ongoing activities, and or they are related to their cognitive activities or not.
Our interest in instilling the “love of knowledge” and passion for it in the hearts of students at an early age while in the stages of formation and maturity is in line with our desire to deal with it later – as professionals. and specialists who are more passionate about their different types of work, regardless of what the dictionaries of society and the language of reality make of classification and distinction between business and professions.
Whoever grows up in a love of science and discovery, he will love to practice and put into practice what he has learned, as a new step in the learning journey, decorating his chest, enlightening his mind and people benefit from it.
Volunteering and giving for free
In the context of his interest in work and production activities, he paid special attention to volunteering in the new concept of hobbies, and gave the ASC model a separate title, albeit a kind of work. And the chances of mastering volunteer work seem greater, in terms of volunteering is usually associated with desire and passion, unlike regular work, although passion is important in both. The inclusion of volunteering in the students’ hobby matrix, together with knowledge, sport and work, represents an integrated package that utilizes various abilities (mental, physical and psychological) in a wonderful synergy and harmony, confirming that the renewal of the concept of “hobbies” not only stops its positive aspects at the stage of “knowledge”, but extends to Her other friends are in the student’s hobby basket.
“The model not only helps us discover our cognitive and professional hobbies, it also asks us to find out what their relationships are,” says one ASC user. The model works to discover the connections and bonds between the student’s knowledge and professional hobbies that will transfer his passion for knowledge to a similar passion for work, from a passion for knowledge to a passion for work, or with a specific wage or voluntary. .
Our activities are between two photos
Each activity has two images, one from the outside and one from the inside. The previous idea represents a very important entry into our training programs, as we handle “activities” in their “normal” form, and then work on developing and improving them, without focusing on their “outside” image. To approach the idea, let’s give an example of writing as one of the students’ “current or favorite” activities. Its social image is as follows: (Writing is difficult and difficult and requires extensive culture and accurate knowledge of grammar and grammar … etc).
As for its natural image, it is a normal activity in the basket of our ongoing activities, and not with all these forms and constraints. We are therefore working to transfer it from the context of revision to other natural contexts such as learning and communication, as an important and essential tool for both.
The external image of the activity is determined by the surrounding environment, with all its cultural and social concepts and accumulations, while the internal image of the activity is determined by your choice of “you”. The images we choose for our activities determine the level of our association with them, and the extent to which we are able to continue to practice and develop them. Someone had brought his car to the laundry room late, and the workers were about to leave, so the owner of the car begged one of them to clean it before closing the shop, promising him an additional fee. as well as to help him reach his destination after completing the work. The worker agreed, with signs of satisfaction on his face, and proceeded to clean the car with care that impressed the owner. After completing the work, the worker refused to take the extra wage and he was satisfied with the normal return for his work. He thanked the client for his generosity and taste. Then he went to a luxury car near the shop, amidst the customer’s surprise and amazement !!
The external images of activities are characterized by instability and change according to the change in the surrounding concepts, events and situations. In the story, it was clear that the worker’s image had changed in the client’s mind. It was sudden and sharp; The first picture was that the worker was happy with the extra rate, in addition to his luck with the “deliveries” service .. Then it changed to another completely different one; The worker’s pleasure was not due to wages, and he did not need a car to take him to his destination after work.
The social picture determines the motives of work and limits it to “getting money” and pressures the worker to commodify himself, and to treat it as a commodity that can be sold, bought and negotiated. In economics, work emerges as one. of the production elements, in addition to land and capital, in another external image that “labor places an essential element in economic production processes.
On human needs, Anthony Robbins talks about human behavior being controlled by six psychological motives and “drivers”, which are certainty and uncertainty, “love and connection”, importance, growth and contribution. Do these motives and motives apply to “work” as human behavior? Can work provide for them as humanitarian needs? Our view of work as a provider of human needs represents an image from within, as opposed to its social image from without as a way of making money.
A close look at Robbins’ list of needs is very relevant to work as an ongoing human activity. If work is a reason for security and a sense of security for some of us, then it is a tool for risk, excitement and insecurity for others. Work is a way of communicating with a society, even if it is limited, which necessarily provides a level of warmth and a degree of love. What the human need for a sense of value, importance, growth and contribution regards, It seems that most of them are related to work and related to it, and these needs represent prominent motives and motives for our zeal to work and continuity in it.
It is important to realize the contrast between what we store from internal images of our activities, including “work”, and what defines our surrounding environments from external images, which are not suitable as engines, motives and fuel for continuity and performance.
The geography of passion
In the capitals and big cities, there are greater opportunities for learning and knowledge growth, as opposed to less access in small towns and rural areas, especially in our countries and our immediate area. In quiet areas, opportunities for spiritual production seem greater than in others, unlike in overcrowded or noisy cities.
In hobby discovery and activity promotion programs, participants usually ask which activities are age-appropriate. Of course, the questions of the participants are relevant and important, but the most important is in my opinion what makes geography available, and what also hides it. The participant’s understanding of his environment and climate is a first step to the activities that are appropriate or most appropriate is for his tendencies and abilities.
The ASC model is a supportive tool for the geography of activities, which we can use to research the relationships between each individual activity and the list of places available for its practice and reinforcement. In one of Ask’s stories, the students used the model to plan their summer vacation activities (time), and in another story, the older sister trained the two little girls at home (mkan).
In the world of economics, the interest of the actors in production and industries is focused on the preferred characteristics that geography offers, whether natural, social or technical. Industries with a need for labor are on their way to areas of abundance in labor, while those with a need for good technical structures are on their way to “Silicon Valley”.
Business owners are the first to take off the cloak to belong to geographical boundaries, to be successful and expand their activities, and they are not concerned with geography, except those related to business and investments.
What is impossible of activities in one (environment) may be available in others near or far. It is important to realize that geography offers us opportunities to promote our favorite activities; To become more willing to take advantage of what is available, and more efficient to harness our capabilities and trends to achieve the best possible results.
