    Tourism is still booming as one of the largest industries around the world. It boosts the economic growth of a country while providing potential job creation for residents. For instance, by estimating to serve approximately about 15.6 million foreign tourists and about 80 million domestic travelers, Vietnam generate receives 620 trillion VND (26.66 billion USD) in tourism and a rise of more than 25 thousand employees per years.
    From another angle, tourism can also have many negative impacts on the quality of life. One of them is that it leads to the overcrowding on such places as Barcelona, Venice and Spain. Venice, a city of 60 000 people, welcomes nearly 30 million visitors a year, that 76000 tourists a day. Spain welcomed over 82 million travelers in 2017 with 9 million visiting Barcelona alone. Even, CNN 10 reported on 28 of May, there were a significant rise in the number of hiker climbing Mount Everest, which led to traffic jams on the climbing path.

    PERFECTIONISM (December 23, 2018)

    (20:17:31 PM 21/12/2018)

    I used to be a  perfectionist in my teaching job, which frequently drove me crazy and I  wept more than once when the students refused to follow my guidelines  and made silly mistakes, thereby making less progress as expected.  Things picked up when I realized what I experienced was frustration,  stress, anxiety and self-blame. To me, being a perfectionist leads to  considerable burden and procrastination. Then I have gradually given up  perfectionism and accepted flaws.
      On the other hand, I find  perfectionism necessary in some aspects of life. I really admire some of  my friends, who set high standards for their work and their  relationships and relentlessly strive to meet the standards whatever  happens. From my point of view, the perfectionism at least helps them  develop more responsibility at work and be more selective in the choice  of partners.
       Are you a perfectionist? Come to Advance this week to enjoy fruitful discussion.
     
      QUESTIONS TO PONDER:


     1. Define perfectionism in your own words. Are you a perfectionist in some aspects of life? Tell your story.
      2. Why do some people tend to become perfectionists? Do you think this  quote is right? ““At its root, perfectionism isn’t really about a deep  love of being meticulous. It’s about fear. Fear of making a mistake.  Fear of disappointing others. Fear of failure. Fear of success.” -  Michael Law
     3. What are the advantages of being a perfectionist? Give some examples in your work and relationships.
      4. What are the disadvantages of being a perfectionist? Why do some  people maintain their perfectionism though they are distressed by it?
      5. How can people overcome perfectionism? What attitude should they  adopt to be relaxed while being still demanding in what they set out to  do?
