Let's Set
Goals! What is the
between a dream
& a goal? "If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where
they should be. Now put
the foundations under them." Objectives Dreaming. Scheming.
Achieving. Now we know...here we go! - Henry David Thoreau What is a goal?

1 SMART goal you would
like to accomplish before the end
of 7th grade.
1 long-term SMART goal you would like to accomplish in your lifetime. Dare to dream. 1. I want my parents to be proud of what I accomplish.

when I turn 16.
3. I want to backpack through a foreign country.
4. I want to graduate from college.
5. I want to write a best-selling novel.
6. I want to go sky-diving.

are measurable when another person can determine

SMART Goal: I will be the CEO of a major corporation after obtaining a business degree, doing internships, gaining experience, and working my way up in the company. •Find a balance between a high and realistic goal. Though
it is alright to have unrealistic goals, it is better to have goals
that provide more motivation. Attainable Vague goal: I will be a rich doctor;
SMART Goal: I will be a doctor that uses my compassion and intelligence to heal and/or comfort the sick and restore lives. •Establish a goal that aligns with your interests/gifts/
purpose in life. Relevant Vague goal: – I will study for my test;
SMART Goal: – I will study for my test every day this week at 4pm for a two-hour time frame Deadlines are neccessary to ward off procrastination. Timely What are values? Personal standards from which we receive the motivation to act as we do and by which we judge behavior (both ours and others)
