Long Term Goal Planning –
Lesson Part 2

   Now that we have defined some of our short-
    term goals and written a personal mission
    statement, we are going to look at the “bigger
    picture” and have our “end in mind” be
    further out into the future.
SMART Goal Setting

   The following are components of an effective
    goal – one that describes performance
    standards that will “tell us what good
    behavior looks like”.
   The SMART acronym can help us remember
    these components.
SMART Goals

   Specific
   Measurable
   Achievable
   Realistic
   Timely
Steps for Effective Goal Setting

   Develop several goals. A list of 5-7 items
    gives you several things to work on over a
    period of time.
   State goals as a declaration of intention; not
    items on a wish list. “I want to apply to three
    schools” lacks power. “I will apply to three
    schools” is intentional and powerful.
Effective Goal Setting

   Attach a date to each goal. State what you
    intend to accomplish and by when. A good
    list should include some short term and long
    term goals.
   Be specific. “To find a job” is too general; “to
    find and research five job openings before
    the end of the month” is better.
Effective Goal Setting

   Share your goals with someone who cares if
    you reach them. Sharing your intentions with
    your parents, best friend, or your teacher will
    help ensure success.
   Write down your goals and put them where
    you will see them. The more often you read
    your list, the more results you get.
Effective Goal Setting

   Review and revise your list. Experiment with
    different ways of stating your goals. Goal
    setting improves with practice, so play
    around with it.
Effective Goal Setting Summary:

1.   Develop several goals.
2.   State goals as a declaration of intention; not items
     on a wish list.
3.   Attach a date to each goal.
4.   Be specific.
5.   Share your goals with someone who cares if you
     reach them.
6.   Write down your goals and put them where you will
     see them.
7.   Review and revise your list.
SMART Goal Activity

   Take out a pen and paper.
   Put your name, date and block.
   Copy the following slides.
SMART Goal Activity

Goal Statement:   What do I need        Where am I now
                  to reach this         in relation to my
                  goal?                 stated goal?
                  (List at least five
                  resources)
SMART Goal Activity

Obstacles:                   Solutions:
What is holding me back?     How do you plan to
What do I need to            overcome these obstacles.
overcome to achieve this     State a proposed solution
goal?                        for each obstacle
List at least 5 obstacles.   mentioned.
They can be physical,
monetary, emotional, etc…
Mind Maps…What Are They?

   An image, centered around a key concept
    (goals), with related words and concepts that
    represent connections linked with the key
    concept
Mind Maps…What Are They Used For?

   Brainstorming
   Define Goals and Action Steps
   Personalized
   “Drill Down”
   Detailed
Mind Map Guidelines:

   Start in the center of the paper with an image or
    symbol.
   Make the branches closest to the center thicker,
    and make the attached branches farther from
    the center thinner.
   Each line must be connected, starting from the
    central image.
   Organize like things together on connected
    branches.
Mind Map Guidelines:

   Use at least 3 colors.
   Use colors as your own special code to show
    people, topics, themes or dates, to make the
    Mind Map more beautiful.
   Include symbols and pictures whenever
    possible.
   Develop your own personal style of Mind
    Mapping. Your Mind Maps should be unique.
Your “Goal” Mind Map

   Take your goal statement or your name and
    put it into one word. That will be the center
    or starting point of your mind map.
   Create 5 branches off of the main goal and
    these will be your “action steps”. We will
    then break these down further.
Goal Planning Worksheet (GPW)

   Now that we have done the SMART Goal
    Activity, we are going to fill the GPW
   This will act as a personal contract and
    promise to yourself. This will be a part of you
    portfolio for your final project and included in
    you next notebook check.
GPW Directions

   Write your Goal Statement (this can be the
    same from your SMART goal activity)
   Set a date (deadline) for when you want to
    reach that goal
   List 5 “Action” steps that you will take to set
    this goal in action
GPW Directions

   Narrative Statement. This will be a 5 sentence
    paragraph that will draw a picture of your life once
    you have accomplished this goal. It could be about
    your state of mind, well-being, lifestyle, relationships,
    etc. Be creative.
   Acknowledgement: Why do you deserve this change
    in your life? Have you worked hard towards this
    goal?
   Accountability: Put today’s date and sign your name.
    Remember: This is a contract to yourself.
