Goal Setting: Slaying Your Goals

Goal Setting: Slaying Your Goals

A goal is just a dream with a deadline - Napoleon Hill

1. Think Big

What's your dream? Example, "I want to graduate from college."

2. Think Smaller

Break it down.  List a few steps to reach your goal:

  • Attend every class
  • Attend S I sessions and tutoring
  • Take 15 credits

3. Think Small

Describe what you have to do to reach your goal in one sentence. This will become your goal. For example, "In order to graduate in four years I will attend class, take 15 credits and stick to my study plans."

4. Think SMART!

Is your goal:

  • Specific
  • Measurable
  • Attainable
  • Relevant
  • Time-bound
