    4. 4. Are your goals realistic? Often, SBCC students set very high goals for themselves: full class load, job, sports, social life, family responsibilities... It may not be possible to do it all during the 16 week semester What are your most important goals for the semester? (And, what are you willing to give up for the time being?...) Are you prepared to make choices that match your goals?
    5. 5. Using your goals to help you make decisions:
    6. 6. Using your goals to help you make decisions: Let’s say this is a student’s CHOICES: number one goal: “do well in school to transfer see a late movie get a good into the nursing program” with friends night’s sleep work on an Which choices will help this go to a party essay student meet this goal and go to instructor’s office struggle through which choices will keep the confusing assignment hours or arrange to work with a tutor student from meeting this clean the read textbook goal? kitchen assignment
    7. 7. Assignment One: DO THIS NOW: go to the following website Goals/Objectives Worksheet and fill out the form on “goals and priorities.” Make a printout of your completed work to turn in at our next class. (click on the purple link to the right to go to the website, then return here. You may need to click to begin again)
    8. 8. Procrastination:
    9. 9. Procrastination: Listen to this poem on procrastination by Shel Silverstein. Procrastination is putting something off or delaying something until the last minute. Examples: waiting until the night before to write a paper, “cramming” for an exam, having late fees from not paying your bills on time, having a warrant out for your arrest from unpaid parking tickets... Some possible causes or reasons for why we procrastinate: 1. perfectionism (wanting everything to be perfect) wanting it to be so good that the tasks becomes overwhelming and scary 2. fear of failure think about it: if you want until the last minute to write a paper, and you get a “C-” on it, you can always blame it on that your wrote it at 3am. But, if you really work your hardest on it, and still get a “C-” you have to come face to face with your true level of ability. In order to avoid knowing just how good or bad we are at something, we procrastinate so as never to feel like a “failure.” Which one of these is the reason why 3. disliking the task just don’t want to do it she wouldn’t take the garbage out?... 3. disliking the task
    10. 10. Analyzing your time:
    11. 11. Analyzing your time: How you spend your time should reflect what your goals and priorities are. For instance, if your goal is to become a champion swimmer, a majority of your time in your schedule should be filled with practice time, gym time, etc. Do the worksheets on “24 hours in a Day” and “The Week” to see where your time goes. Does it reflect your priorities and goals, or do you need to adjust how you’re spending your time? Remember to print out your completed pages and turn them in at our next class to receive credit for this assignment.
    12. 12. Managing your Life:
    13. 13. Managing your Life: When people imagine the semester, they are usually very positive about how it will go, “It will be great!” However, things go wrong in life. You might get sick. Something may go wrong at work. Your roommate may decide to go home to Canada. You could even need stitches in your thumb (happened to me last semester!) The point is, what will you do when things go wrong? How will you be okay and get through the semester when things go wrong? What’s your “backup” plan? How will you handle the STRESS and fatigue when things get hard and really difficult? What’s your plan for reducing stress?
    14. 14. Managing your Stress:
    15. 15. Managing your Stress: Stress can become a serious condition that can result in many various health symptoms. Here are some ways to manage your stress, when things get really hard during the semester: manage your time effectively, so you can feel in control and not get too overwhelmed with work eliminate stressors whenever possible review your accomplishments - see how far you’ve come get advice or help from knowledgeable people get physical exercise, which relieves tension and helps relaxation eat nutritious meals (it’s tempting to eat what’s easy, but good food will help you concentrate and will help you feel better, too.) get enough sleep
