LO1 – Identify own strengths and develop areas for growth
The prolonged process of trying to learn how to solve a Rubik’s cube was challenging, but in the end, I reached my goal and managed to complete it in under 2 mins. Unlike at the start, I now can execute all moves without needing to look or memorise; it is all apart of my muscle memory now. With my constant practising, I can now execute certain moves base on what state the current messed-up cube is.
From this great experience, besides now thoroughly enjoying to solve a Rubik’s cube here and there, I have learnt the need to always look for improvement on my skills, and perhaps find better formulas or ways to solve the cube, which can result in a much faster time. Currently, despite constantly solving it in under 2 mins, all my moves are of a beginner/amateur level and it is instead my overall hand speed of executing these somewhat tedious moves that have really given me a fast time. Considering that, if I manage to learn more complex and complicated moves which will get me results in a shorter time, along with my current hand speed, my performance would greatly increase. Nevertheless, this has been a very engaging experience and has definitely set a basis for me to continue onwards.
