Thanks for stopping by, this is 2 minute classroom, and today we are going to talk about goal setting for students, using a four key steps.
We all have goals that we want to achieve as students. Maybe it’s to get straight As, or maybe to get into a certain university after high school and or high paying job after college. Maybe your goal it to just pass your classes.
Let me know what some of your goals are in the comments or the community tab.
Now, Let’s get into it.
Step 1 is to select a goal.
This is the easy step.
For example, you may have a goal to get at least a 3.5 GPA in all your courses this semester. Great goal.
Step 2 is to define your motivation.
Why do you want your goal? Maybe you want a 3.5 GPA to be eligible for sports, maybe it’s to get into a decent college, or maybe it’s just to keep your parents happy. Whatever it is, the motivation is what will drive you to accomplish the goal, especially if you get discouraged, think of it as your reward for accomplishing the goal.
Step 3 is to break the goal down.
So you want at least a 3.5 GPA, how are you going to do it? By setting smaller goals that build up to the larger goal.
This could be things like:
Take notes in every class
Study for at least 1 hour every day
No late assignments
Attend every class
I can’t over emphasize the importance of this step.
Accomplishing goals is a lot like eating and elephant.
And how do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time of course.
So breaking your goal down into bite size chunks helps you understand what you need to do to reach the goal and gives you a road map to get there.
Step 4 is to write it down.
If you really want to accomplish a goal, it needs to be top of mind, so you need to see it regularly, probably everyday. So write down the goal, the motivation, and some of the main sub-goals and post it in a prominent place. This could be in your room, your car, your bathroom, or better yet, all three.
I have my goals for my YouTube channel posted on the wall right in front of my desk where I work on my videos. I see it all the time and am constantly reminded of what I want, why I want it, and what I need to do to get it.
If one of your goals is related to doing well in your classes, consider subscribing and checking out my videos.
I look forward to reading your goals in the comments here and in the community tab.
Thanks for watching and I’ll catch you next time.
