Transcript

  • 1. Setting Goals
  • 2. What is a Goal?
    Goal
    a task we would like to complete
    an achievement we would like to make real
    objective, milestone, ambition, target (look it up!)
  • 3. Why Set Goals?
    a way to motivate yourself
    creates internal motivation
    very effective way to get yourself working harder
    a way to measure success
    did we do what we wanted (reach the goal)?
    yes – let’s celebrate
    no – ok… what do we need to do differently?
  • 4. How do we make good goals?
    Some goals work better than others.
    Example 1:
    I want to lose weight.
    Example 2:
    I want to lose 5 kg by April 30, 2010. I will run for 20 minutes and lift weights for 20 minutes, 5 times a week. I will only eat unhealthy food twice a week.
  • 5. SMART Goals
    SMART is an acronym to help us remember some of the ways to make good goals
  • 6. SMART Goals
  • 7. SMART Goals
  • 8. SMART Goals
  • 9. More on Goals
    A good way to make your goals more measureable and achievable is to include milestones or stepping stones.
    milestones / stepping stones
    like mini-goals – smaller goals with a shorter time deadline that will help on the way to your main goal
  • 10. Be Flexible
    Be focused on your task and aware of the time / resources you use / need to use
    Moving too slow?
    increase the amount of resources you use or,
    change the target date
    The important things are:
    your goal is motivating you
    you are moving toward success
