Listen to caption. Let's talk about goals. We will go through some steps on how to write a goal and how to reach a goal.
Listen to caption. When thinking about a goal, here are some things to keep in mind.
Listen to caption. A goal is something you want to accomplish. It's not something that someone else wants you to do. Goals help you get things done.
Listen to caption. A goal has a start date and an end date. This is important. You need to decide the date you will begin working on the goal and the date you will reach the goal.
Listen to caption. There are two types of goals, long term goals and short term goals.
Listen to caption. Long term goals are big goals that will take you a long time to accomplish.
Listen to caption. Examples of long term goals may be going to college, joining the Air Force, or becoming an electrician. You will not reach this goal tomorrow or the next day. It will take sometime.
Listen to caption. Short term goals will take you a short time to reach and help you reach your long term goals. Examples of short term goals are visit a high school, research a career, get an "A" in math.
Listen to caption. Let's take the electrician example. What can you do now, today or tomorrow, or next week to work towards becoming an electrician?
Listen to caption. Maybe you can look up what an electrician does on the internet or take a book out of the library that describes what they do.
Listen to caption. It's time for you to write some long term and short term goals for yourself.
