5 Facts About Goal Setting



In class we learned about the different types of goals we set and how to achieve them. There are long-term and short-term goals and many ways in going about achieving them. The most important fact though, is to set realistic goals for yourself and to not let distractions take you off course. I agree with this article because I think that these steps are necessary to achieving those goals.

Do you believe these steps are necessary to achieving your goals? Any other steps you take towards those goals?

  1. I think these steps are necessary in achieving goals, but i believe there are more than just these steps that are necessary in accomplishing a goal. Like we talked in class, support is necessary (isn't a step, but is needed) and also working hard to achieve the goal. Without all of these things, the goal would never be achieved.

  2. For the most part, I think that this article has pretty good goal-setting guidelines. In the past, I had to write SMART (specific, measurable, action-oriented, realistic, timely) goals every week for advisory, and they helped me get things done. I think the "M" (measurable) is something important that this article left out. In order to track your progress, your goal must be measurable somehow. That way, you can see your success and how much you still have to do to accomplish your goals.

  3. I believe setting goals is necessary to accomplish certain things. Setting goals gives you a structure to follow instead of taking things day by day which won't be as efficient. Therefore, setting goals will help create a plan to achieve either your short or long term goal with steps to follow.

  4. I think that the goal list is correct. You need to set a goal that is realistic to be able to put the right effort into it. Self-motivation is the key to accomplish your goal. Other people don’t matter; you have to be able to finish what you started despite what other people might tell you. Being able to set and achieve your goal is an incredible feeling. One other step to take when setting goals is to break bigger goals into smaller ones, then make progress over time.

  5. I think that the goal guidelines are relatively accurate where having goals to achieve something gives you a greater chance of you reaching the final destination. the type and how many goals you make depends on a lot of things like time, self-motivation levels, difficulty and more. Overall, i agree with the article's guidelines and that making realistic goals is key as well.

  6. i think the most important point they made was to do something you want to do, not what other people tell you should do. As this is key to feeling successful, its fitting that it should be tied with your own personal goals. But how much of your goals should be decided on your own and how much should you have someone else's opinion?
