Patrick Aubin/ Class 3: Accountability

by Patrick Aubin

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

There is no doubt about accountability logs would ever hinder an individual preparing himself to open many doors for success upon release. Although I haven’t applied accountability logs, but on the contrary, I have been is writing a list of projects of things to do and learn in interval of three months at a time, and once that is done I start a new one. I’m seeing this in a whole new way that I can adapt it putting it to good use to help my future success, which is a good thing.

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’ve dealt with probation officers in my past. they was not concern with the crime that landed me in prison or any thing that I have accomplish while in prison. Their main concern was that I get a job so I can pay my restitution, keep my urine test clean, not being late for curfew and attend my weekly office visit on time with my progress for the week and the community service I’ve done. I don’t do drugs or alcohol so getting a job is child’s play. I know what needs to get done not to get violated by them.

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

It’ is true that people will always remember you for the wrong you’ve done that landed you in prison. Now with a person keeping accountability logs in sequence in doing all positive things to show the world that a man can change and build himself to become a better person from his past and can prove it by his work through accountability logs, which will serve a as strong resume.

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

Accountability logs always has played  amajor role in every one’s success in life. It’s like back when video games in arcade game room was very popular. You pick a game that you like and play, once the game was over you record your score and played it again in hope to break a score higher than the last one you score from the first time you played. Of-course you get a higher score each time you played, that’s cause you getting good at playing it now. What started out you spending ten dollars in quarters in two hours playing that same video game went to being only spending just one quarter that last three hours on one game. I describe it in that format because the bottom line is you keeping record of every game you play and you want to outdo yourself every time you play until you are a success at it.

101. How do universities evaluate which students to admit?

when you attend school everything that you does always recorded on recording black and white. Plus your grades on your report card has extra remarks or comments concerning your work  performance and studies in every subject. Just as playing sports in school, if you score a touchdown in every game at the end of every season there will be a ratio of your status in percentage of what they can expect that you get per game. They look at all your credentials just to know what kind of person they  bringing to their school.

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

Creditors of-course want to be guaranteed that they will get their money back in full plus the interest rates. They look at your work history, whether there was a gag of unemployment in between jobs. They check all your financial records from credit cards and seeing if you’re ever late on any payment of any kind.

103. What governs investment decisions that people make?

Investors has to be smart and are always doing their homework in whatever stocks they plan on choosing. That’s why accountability logs plays a major role in this matter because for  one it helps you understands it’s growth and loss ratios and it’s over all profits. Plus you can compare the different stocks of your liking to see which one is doing better in growth and profits.

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

It is very clear to me that accountability logs is very much like a resume, so in answering the questions above you would definitely have to use accountability logs to help assist you in making positive decisions as well in your career.
