Manuel Chavez/ Class 3: Accountability

by Manuel Chavez

97. Describe your thoughts on whether accountability logs would help, hinder, or provide indifferent to your opportunities for success upon release.

They help keep me on track. They are a huge help for me. I gained a lot from seeing how Michael uses them.

98. In what ways will probation officers respond to efforts you’ve made at documenting your values, goals, and commitment to preparing for a law-abiding life upon release?

I never have thought of that!! That would be huge!!! That would certainly break the ice with him or her. I am doing it.

99. Elaborate on ways that full transparency with regard to your prison adjustment through accountability logs can influence potential employers or support networks.

If done properly this program will help me get my patent to the right people, who will see it’s potential and value in society. That is one of my main goals. Or to at least get it out there on the internet. And I think I can accomplish this goal.

100. Describe the role accountability logs played in their success:

Keeping a good track record lets you know where you stand in everything. All these years behind bars I’ve never had anyone other than family show ANY interest in me until now. I like it that this program will help me so much from not returning to prison again. Thank God for you and your commitment.

101. How do universities evaluate which students to admit?

I don’t know but, I suppose it has to do with attitude and past performances while in high school.

102. What information do creditors consider when deliberating on whether to extend loans?

What is the collateral you have and your ability to repay according to your credit history.

103. What governs investment decisions that people make?

Profitability and integrity of the product or company.

104. How do your responses to the above questions support or refute the value of accountability logs?

I support a log book and need one instead of using my calendar which I sometimes forget to look at and use.
