Questions to Guide Your Thinking

LASSI Instructional Modules
Kendall's insight:

Having the motivation to begin starting a goal is the first important step to wvwn have a goal in the first place. What is motivation? hhpublishing.com states that Motivation: "adresses the degree to which you want or are willing to complete the work necessary for you to reach you own academic and post-college goals." This means with no motivation, no goal can be set.

 

     Hhpublishing.com has an in depth section about analyzing motivation, self-effiency, an explanation of internal and external goals, and how to increase your motivation. In the introduction this website offers some questions to think about while reading that can help you decide what kind of goal setter you are, and if you are dependent on yourself or the outside world when setting goals. If you either can't finish your goals, or just can't get started writing any; understanding and increasing your motivation is a key solution which you can easily learn on Hhpublishing.com in their motivation section.

Kendall's insight:

It is easy to make goals; it is hard to achieve them,http://www.uncommon-knowledge.co.uk/goal_setting/smart_4.html informs you just how to do that. The first step in achieving your goals is to make realistic ones. This website explains how to write SMART goals. SMART goals are goals that are specific, measurable, achievable, relevant, and time-bound. Uncommon-Knowledge.co.uk includes a summary of the meaning of each factor of a SMART goal:

 

Specific - your goal should have its expected outcome stated as simply, concisely and explicitly as possible. This answers questions such as; how much, for whom, for what?

Measurable - a measurable goal has an outcome that can be assessed either on a sliding scale (1-10), or as a hit or miss, success or failure.

Achievable - an achievable goal has an outcome that is realistic given your current situation, resources and time available. Goal achievement may be more of a "stretch" if the outcome is tough or you have a weak starting position.

Relevant - a relevant goal should help you on your mission or your "bigger" objectives.

Time-bound - a time-bound goal includes realistic timeframes.

 

     If you understand how to create the right goals, and a plan on the steps to achieve them, you will be almost guarenteed to reach them. This website has articles with tips on how to write realistic goals, how to self assess and the benefits of completing each goal that you set for yourself.
