Transcript of SMART Goals- Goal Setting for Middle School and Beyond!

GOAL SETTING



Dreams (wishful thinking), and Goals?
Dreams are visions of what we want.
Goals are our road map to making it happen
– they take us from one point to the next.

It has to be
important to you
, personally
Has to be
within your power
and actions to make it happen
Must have
reasonable
chance of achieving
Must be
clear
to you and have
specific
plan of action.

How To Set S.M.A.R.T. Goals
What Is The Difference Between:
In Order For Something To Be A Goal:
Set Short-Term Goals
Get tutoring in Math this quarter
Attend peer tutoring to get help with homework
Spend a minimum of one hour every night on homework and studying

Set Long-Term Goals:
Explore careers I am interested in
Graduate from high school with good grades
Go to college or get a job

S.M.A.R.T. Goals

What, Why, How?
What are you going to do?
Why – is this important to do at this time?
What do you want to accomplish?
How are you going to do it? (By doing….)

Poor Example: I will exercise more.
Good Example: I will walk for 30 minutes every day.

S.M.A.R.T. Goals

(How much, How many?)
If you can’t measure it, you can’t manage it.
You have to be able to see the change occur.
Ask Yourself:
How much do I have to do?
How many times do I have to do it?


GOAL SETTING
for Middle School and Beyond!
S.M.A.R.T. Goals
A – ATTAINABLE
(within your reach)
Setting yourself up for success!
A goal needs to make you slightly uncomfortable, so that you know it needs a real commitment
from you.
Facing and overcoming challenges will motivate you to move on to bigger challenges and more satisfying accomplishments.

S.M.A.R.T. Goals
R – REALISTIC
(Do-able, Not Easy or Ridiculous)
Poor Example:
I will not watch television
Realistic Example:
I will not watch
television until my homework is done.

S.M.A.R.T. Goals
T – TIMELY
Set a timeline!

Must have a set deadline:
When do I want to have the goal accomplished?
What steps do I need to take to achieve my goal
and keep me on track?

Extra Ideas:
Write your goals on paper
Tell your goals to others, they may be able to help, or keep you to the task
Have a positive attitude
Celebrate your successes!

If you don’t reach a goal, don’t think of it as failure
Don’t be afraid to make mistakes
Identify areas that need improvement
Use your imagination…visualize!
