Your Goal
Write a SMART goal. Make sure that your goal statement is SMART. Make sure the goal is specific, measurable, attainable, realistic and timely. Remember if there is not number in your goal you will not be able to measure it.
Make sure to include the following:
Specific – State your goal clearly and in one sentence.
Measurable – Explain how your goal is will be measured on a daily or weekly basis so you know you are on track.
Achievable – What specific behaviors are you going to do to do each day to get to your goal. List at least 3.
Realistic – How motivated are you? And how are you going to keep yourself motivated? Think back to the “My Why” paper your wrote.
Timely – What is your deadline?
What are your top three (3) values that are supporting this goal you have set? Explain why these values are important to you. How do these values keep you motivated in working toward this goal?
Are you living your core values? For example, if health is important to you, and you eat eight slices of pizza, drink two cans of soda, and watch five straight hours of television, then you are not living true to your values. There’s a gap between what you value and your behavior. How can knowing your values help you stay on course?
Think about how you spend your time. What is an example of something you do that fulfills one of your core values?
Your Personal Motivational Saying
Find a saying that will inspire you and keep you motivated. You can use one you find or you can make it up. Some people refer to this saying as a motto or mantra.
Your Personal Motivational Saying is an affirmation to motivate and inspire you. The purpose is to provide motivation and encouragement to you when you need to focus your mind to achieve your goal. Think of this as your favorite inspirational saying that keeps you going. It should be easy to memorize and repeat. Athletes use this technique all the time.
Your Your Personal Motivational Saying will help you stay connected to your “WHY” which is the heart of your motivation.
How will you use your Your Personal Motivational Saying for inspiration and for retraining your thoughts so you can focus on what is important to you? Where will you put it so you can see it on a daily basis?
Growth Mindset
Obstacles and setback happen. A cultivating a Growth Mindset helps you overcome these setbacks.
What are the characteristics of a Growth Mindset and how can this mindset help you cope when the going gets rough?
What are your barriers or challenges when it comes to this goal?
What is your plan for overcoming these obstacles. Think of setbacks you have had previously with the above goal. What are you going to do to change the outcome this time? Remember that Fail stands for first attempt in learning. ANY failure you have teaches you, and if you have a growth mindset you are willing to learn from your mistakes.
I look forward to seeing your goal project!!
