Let's Set

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."
Dreaming. Scheming.
- Henry David Thoreau
What is a goal?
Differentiate short-term & long-term goals
Establish goals of our own!
A goal is a dream...with a plan!

Short-term Goal
A specific desired outcome and a plan (for specific behaviors) that will lead to the outcome over a short period of time. (Within 6 months)
Be S.M.A.R.T.
Dare to dream.
1. I want my parents to be proud of what I accomplish.
2. I want to save up enough money to buy myself a car
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.
7. I want to play a varsity sport in high school.
8. I want to own my own business.
9. I want to learn another language.
10. I want to join a rock and roll band.
Vague goal: I will graduate from high school with honors;
SMART Goal: I will graduate from high school in the span of four years. I will develop a regular plan of study to obtain a minimum 3.78 grade-point average in all subject areas.
•Unclear goals yield unclear results
Vague goal: I will make a lot of money this summer;
SMART Goal: I will have $1000 in my bank account by the first day of school.
•"What get's measured, gets managed." Goals
are measurable when another person can determine
you have accomplished your goal.
Vague goal: I will be the CEO of a major corporation when I graduate from high school;
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.
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.
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.
What is the difference between a short-term and long-term goal?
What is a SMART goal?
Long-term Goal
A general desired outcome to be met over a relative long period of time. (Achievement requires the successful completion of several related short-term goals)
