Transcript of Go For The Goal! (Goal Setting)

Go For The Goal!
Set Goals That Are SMART!
Goals Should Be: ATTAINABLE
First: Your goal must be POSSIBLE.
Has it been done before?
Can it be done again?

Second: Your goal must be MANAGEABLE.
Do you have the time, resources, knowledge and capability to achieve this goal?
An Example of Good Goal Setting
DON'T SAY: I will attend college.

Instead, say:

I will apply

to Chattanooga State

by December 1st.
The Importance of Goal Setting
Setting goals is important because goals:
Help you think clearly about what you want so you can make more intentional choices.
Help you stay accountable to yourself.
Guide you in achieving your highest potential.
Keep you from wasting your time, money, and effort.
Goals Should Be: SPECIFIC
The goal must clearly state:
WHAT is to be achieved
WHERE it is to be achieved
and WHEN it is to be achieved

Sometimes, it may even state WHY that goal is important.
Goals Should Be: MEASURABLE
Goals that are measurable state:
both the end result
And the milestones along the way to attaining a goal

Answers the question of quantity:
How much?
How often?
How will I know when it has been attained?
Goals Should Be: RELEVANT
Choosing goals that are relevant means choosing goals that MATTER.

Questions to ask yourself:
Is it practical?
Does this seem worthwhile?
Am I skilled in this area? If not, can I improve?
Are the decisions I am making going to help me reach my goal?
Goals Should Be: TIMELY
Simply deciding WHEN you want to achieve something by can be a great motivator.
What tasks do I need to complete toward my goal?
What must be done 6 months from now?
What must be done 6 weeks from now?
What can I do today?

Being timely can prevent you from procrastinating because you know you are working to a deadline.
Specific & Attainable
Things to Remember
When setting goals, you should make sure they are SMART!

Goals must state: What? Whom? Where? When? Why?

Start with the big picture, then get specific!
