The word for the January Tip Test worksheet is Goal-Setting. Students, this month we’re challenging you to begin creating goals you would like to achieve in 2024. Take a moment to consider what you’d like your year to look like. While you’re reflecting, try to compose one goal you have for yourself in 2024.
To help you create your 2024 goal, we’d like to introduce SMART goals. SMART goals include 5 components; they are: Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, and Time-bound. Use these questions to help you construct a SMART goal.
S: What will you achieve? What will you do?
M: What data will you use to decide whether you’ve met your goal?
A: Are you sure you can do this? Do you have the right skills and resources?
R: Does the goal align with your values?
T: What is the deadline for accomplishing your goal?
