  1. 1. How many Smarties can you stack? If your actual performance was UNDER your goal: Actual performance 10 Score Calculations = actual performance X 5 Score = 10 x 5 = 50 If your actual performance is the SAME as your goal: Actual performance 15 Score Calculations = actual performance X 10 Score = 15 x 10 = 150 If your actual performance is the HIGHER than your goal: Actual performance 18 Score Calculations = (Goal X 10) + (# of smarties over your goal X 5) Score = (15 x 10) + (3 x 5) = 150 + 15 = 165]

NO GOALS!! • People with goals can see what they eventually want to achieve and they can see just how to get there.
  10. 10. Things to remember: • Goals must be realistic – you can’t lose 40 pounds in one month • Must prioritize – rank in order of importance you, can’t accomplish it all at once. • Do you have the resources you need to reach your goals (money, information, health, energy, skill, etc.).
  11. 11. Build a bridge and get over it • You will have challenges. • You will have roadblocks. • You can have excuses or success but not both.

  13. 13. Activity… • Take one of the goals that you wrote at the beginning of class and rewrite it as a SMART goal. • Write down three short term goals you will need to do in order to complete your long term goal.
  14. 14. Get Your Goals Off the Ground • You need 1 ½ pieces of construction paper, string, scissors, tape and markers. • Use the whole sheet of construction paper to make a kite representing your long-term goal. • Cut your ½ sheet into three pieces to tape to the string to represent your short-term goals. • Write your goals on the kite and the three pieces. • Tape your string to the kite and put your name on the back of it.
  15. 15. Life Map • Give each student a poster and have them draw their life map from the present day and extend it until their fortieth birthday (or another designated age). They should include the times they want major events and changes to take place. They could include high school graduation, college or post-secondary school graduation, beginning of a career, marriage, beginning of a family, when they might get an apartment, buy a house, buy a car, become famous, etc. Each student's map will differ according to what they want to be and accomplish. Have them include roadblocks or rocks along the way that may make it difficult or impossible to accomplish those goals. These could include bad grades, early marriage, lack of money, laziness, illness, injury, etc. These roadblocks should be realistic to them.
