WW Activity: Goal Setting!

Goal Setting

 

This week's wellbeing activity is about setting goals! Goals are a really important part of building motivation and setting direction for your time and energy. Goals can be set in a wide range of settings: you may have work goals, study goals, social goals, financial goals, personal goals... the list goes on! It is all about these 5 key areas: S.M.A.R.T.

Re: WW Activity: Goal Setting!

S - Specific

M - Measurable

A - Acheivable

R - Relevant

T - Timebound

 

By Sunday night (6pm) I want to have created cue cards for my uni exam, practiced with them on quizlet for at least 2 hrs, and completed 3 practice questions. 

 

This fits the SMART goal format because my goal is specific (about 1 uni subject rather than "study"), Measurable (I've included numbers to hit for parts of the goal so I can measure my achievements), Achievable (I'm not telling myself to memorise a whole textbook, rather I know I'm able to do these tasks in the timeframe around my other commitments), Relevant (it's related to an upcoming exam which is a priority for me, and Timebound (Aiming to have it done by Sunday 6pm gives me a deadline to work towards).

 

What are your SMART goals, everyone?

Re: WW Activity: Goal Setting!

Specific - I want to maintain my exercise routine while I am away from home for the month 

Measurable - I will walk x3 a week minimum

Achievable - I will plan the days I am going to walk on a Sunday before the week starts

Realistic - This will help me to stay fit, feel good about myself and explore the new city I am in

Timely - I will have done 12 walks by the 15th of July! 

 

2. Let us know how you are going progressing your goal

ok starting tomorrow... lol

Re: WW Activity: Goal Setting!

SMART is such a useful acronym!

I'm going to try applying this to creative writing - by the end of the week I want to have finished writing a short story of around 2,000 words Smiley Happy

Re: WW Activity: Goal Setting!

I associate this with personal development and hatred of abbreviations, because you can put any word in a crossword puzzle and think about what is depicted under it and what each word means there. In general, it is strange why associate different words for each purpose of the action, if you can just engage in self-development and not make the abbreviation "refrigerator"out of the desire to lose weight. This is not reasonable and every time you need to prove something to yourself, limit and lock yourself in the framework of anti-social influence. It's so difficult for me although the idea is good
