Reaching Your Goals
Lots of times I kind of guffaw at all this goal setting stuff. People ask, "What are your goals?" and it seems like whoever can list the most goals wins. All they are doing is telling all the things they want but they may never get there. What people really need to ask is, "What will you do to make sure you reach your goals?" Having these goals will help motivate you to do something.
Anyway, let me tell you what this goal business is all about. It's actually pretty neat. There are three main steps to getting to where you want to go...(view more)

One of the best ways to tackle the difficulty of changing behavior is to engage in goal-setting. Despite the common sense approach that ‘I will just change" psychologists know that behavior change can be quite difficult. Setting goals can allow us to engage in the process of behavior change that will most likely lead to better behavioral change than to simply use the common sense idea of just deciding to make a change and assuming the goal will be accomplished ...

Motivation, Goal Setting, and Success
Motivation is the combination of desire, values, and beliefs that drives you to take action. These three motivating factors, and/or lack of them, are at the root of why people behave the way they do. Because you ultimately control your values, beliefs, and desires, you can influence your motivations. This means, if you consider something important and assign value to it, you are more likely to do the work it takes to attain the goal. When motivation originates from an internal source and is combined with a realistic goal and circumstance, the odds of a good outcome are greatly increased ... (view more)

S.M.A.R.T. Goals
S.M.A.R.T. means Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic, and Time-Sensitive. I really like this acronym S.M.A.R.T., because we want to be smart when we set our goals. We want to intelligently decide what our goals will be so that we can actually accomplish them. We want to set the goals that our heart conceives, that our mind believes and that our bodies will carry out. Let's take a closer look at each of the components of S.M.A.R.T. goals ... (view more)

Definition of Goals
A goal is "something that the person wants to achieve" (Locke & Latham, 1990, p.2). A teacher's goal might be " to help students understand the concept of an ellipse within one week;" A typical goal for a student could be " earning an 'A' in foreign language class." (view more)

Short-term And Long-term Goals
Not only should you set useful goals, you should also set both short-term and long-term goals. Short-term goals are ones that you will achieve in the near future (e.g., in a day, within a week, or possibly within a few months). Long-term goals are ones that you will achieve over a longer period of time (e.g., one semester, one year, five years, or twenty years)...(view more)

Divide and Conquer
Never forget this idea. It could save your sanity when the work begins to pile up. Whenever you are faced with what seems to be an overwhelming amount of work, take each big task and break it down into smaller pieces. If those pieces still seem too big, then break those down too. Keep doing that until you have a long list of tasks - each of which you could start now and finish in an hour or even half an hour. This will help you overcome procrastination. It will also help you see real progress and make you feel more in control. A two-hour study session could result in three or four things getting crossed off your list ... (view more)
