Tapan Patel The Traveling Mindset 02/08/12 Is there any reason or value in reversing the process of habituation? What good would come out of adapting the traveling mindset? Would one gain any knowledge of some sort through venturing places he or she may have never thought of visiting before? Actually, there are positives as well as negatives in adopting a traveling mindset. It is true that one may learn to see the majestic world through a different pair of eyes, but then again, how far drifted would that person become from his or her goals? While a traveling mindset will provide one with a new outlook on life, it also will prove itself inefficient. What does it mean to possess a habituated mindset? What does being habituated mean? Is it good to be habituated? A habituated mindset is the mentality of doing the same things every day. One would do the same things every day, every week, or so on. One would develop a schedule and follow it with complete dedication. A resident of New York City may possess a habituated mindset by going to work every day, eating, coming home, and doing the same for the rest of the week. This may seem normal for most New Yorkers. Now if a New Jersey resident from Piscataway travels to Manhattan, New York, and happens to bump into a New Yorker on the sidewalk, the New Yorker would keep walking along as if nothing happened while the New Jersey resident would feel insulted. The reason for this would be different mindsets in the two different people.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
