Goals Assignment

Instructions and Guidelines 1. Using the guidelines in Chapter One, create a long-term, mid-term and short-term goal in at least three categories. Categories might be Health & Fitness, Education, Career, Romance, Spirituality, Wealth, Travel, Hobbies etc. 2. Each goal should be only one complete sentence. 3. Your short-term and mid-term goal in each category should be benchmarks towards your long term goal. Your goals in each category should correlate with each other. 4. Your long-term goals should be compatible. The achievement of one of your long-term goals should not prohibit the achievement of one of your other long-term goals. 5. Your goals must follow the SMART guidelines which are: Specific (How much? How Many? To what standard? ) Measurable (Can your success towards the goal be effectively determined?) Achievable (Is the goal something you have control or influence over? Do you have the needed talents, skills and resources to accomplish the goal or can you get them?) Relevant (Will it make a difference in your life?) Time Referenced (by when) Some internet sites that may help are: http://www.goal-setting-guide.com/goal-setting-tutorials/smart-goal-setting http://www.career-intelligence.com/management/SmartGoals.asp http://www.mindtools.com/pages/article/newHTE_87.htm http://sbinfocanada.about.com/od/goalsetting/a/goalsettingtips.htm 6. Your goals should be positive. 7. Your goals should be personal.

Motivational authorities recommend that you write goals as though you have already accomplished them. Use present tense. 9. It is recommended by some that goals be written using action verbs rather than passive verbs (am, be). 10. Complete the following template and submit it.
