Goal Setting

Goal Setting

What are some areas in your life that you should set goals?

Importance of Goal Setting

THINK ABOUT IT: You just receive a phone call that informed you that you won a million dollars. It was yours to keep if you picked it up by 5 oclock that day. Eager and excited to collect your money, you hang up, call your parents for a ride and jump in the car. As your parents leave the parking lot you realized one thing.
What do you realize?

Think About It
You were so excited to collect your winnings, you forgot to ask where you needed to go to collect it. You dont have a number to call, in fact, you dont even know who was on the phone. You miss out on the chance of a lifetime.

Goal Setting
If you dont know where you are going, how will you ever get there?
Once you know where you are going, how are you get there? Once you figure out how and where, you will face obstacles how do you over come?

SMART Goal Setting

S: Specific
M: Measurable A: Attainable R: Relevant T: Time

Goals should be to the point, focused and be clearly defined. Poor
I want to get good grades. I will try to complete all homework. I want to read all assigned reading.

I will get an A in Study Skills. I will turn all homework in by assigned deadline. I will read 10 pgs every night until completed.

Get out some scratch paper.

Write three SPECIFIC goals and be prepared to share one of them. They dont have to be personal goals, just specific goals in general.

Goals should have a specific target to measure so you know exactly when a goal is achieved. A goal to do better in my math class is vague and doesnt explain how youd like to improve. A goal that reads I would like to attend three tutoring session in algebra by November 1st is a measurable goal.

Fix the following goals:
1. I want to raise by health grade.


I wish I could get more of my work done.

Is the goal realistic with effort and commitment? Do you have the resources to achieve this goal? If not, how will you get them?

Goals should be ones you can achieve with effort.
Too extreme = failure Too little = not capable and not fulfilling

Are the following goals attainable?
- I will study my geometry notes for 15 minutes every night before I go to bed. - I will receive an A on my exam next Fri. - I will win 8 Gold Medals at the next Olympics.

Michael Phelps
8 Gold Medals at the 2008 Olympics

Previous Record (7 Gold Medals) only achieved once in 112 year history of modern Olympics

Why is this goal significant to your life? Does this goal make a significant impact? Is it most important to you? Is it most important at this time?

You have a test on Friday and you have set a goal of studying for 30 minutes every night after dinner.
You also have a goal of becoming a professional basketball player. On Wednesday, your coach holds a last minute, optional open gym after dinner. What do you sacrifice?

What is most relevant to you? What are your priorities?
What are your priorities at this time in your life?

Setting priorities help accomplish goals What should come first? Second? Etc? Basically a numbered to do list CONSIDER: deadlines, most important goals, available time, resources, flow of daily tasks

It is important to think about this before the time comes. Be prepared now, so you dont make a mistake later.

Set timeframe for the goal next week, end of quarter, etc.

Putting an end point on your goal gives you a clear target to work towards.

Without a time goals get put on the backburner (procrastination) Give time for unexpected roadblocks!
