1 How to Achieve your Goals Ashley Jones 2011 Indiana Sheep Symposium

2 Background  Ashley Jones  Sophomore in college  Has raised sheep for 11 years, started with two leased sheep, now own 56  In both FFA and 4-H, competed in both  National winner and finalist

3 Goals  Win showmanship.  Go to the fair and place 1 st in every class.  When I am a senior in high school I want to be able to win most of the classes I am entered in, and win showmanship.  Lets set a goal!!!

4 Goals  Set S.M.A.R.T. goals  S- be specific  M- measurable  A-attainable  R- realistic  T- timely

5 Goals--Specific  Specific: A specific goal has a much greater chance of being accomplished than a general goal. To set a specific goal you must answer the six “W” questions:  *Who: Who is involved?  *What: What do I want to accomplish?  *Where: Identify a location.  *When: Establish a time frame.  *Which: Identify requirements and constraints.  *Why: Specific reasons, purpose or benefits of accomplishing the goal.  EXAMPLE: A general goal would be, “Win showmanship.” But a specific goal would say, “work with my showmanship lamb everyday.”

6 Goals- Measurable  Measurable - Establish concrete criteria for measuring progress toward the attainment of each goal you set.  When you measure your progress, you stay on track.  To determine if your goal is measurable, ask questions such as……  How much? How many?  How will I know when it is accomplished?

7 Goals–Attainable  Attainable – When you identify goals that are most important to you, you begin to figure out ways you can make them come true.  You can attain most any goal you set when you plan your steps wisely and establish a time frame that allows you to carry out those steps.

8 Goals-- Realistic  Realistic- To be realistic, a goal must represent an objective toward which you are both willing and able to work. A goal can be both high and realistic; you are the only one who can decide just how high your goal should be.  A high goal is frequently easier to reach than a low one because a low goal exerts low motivational force. Some of the hardest jobs you ever accomplished actually seem easy simply because they were a labor of love.

9 Goals--Timely  Timely – A goal should be grounded within a time frame. With no time frame tied to it there’s no sense of urgency.  If you want to win showmanship, when do you want to win by? “Someday” won’t work. But if you anchor it within a time frame, “by my senior year”, then you’ve set your unconscious mind into motion to begin working on the goal.  Your goal is probably realistic if you truly believe that it can be accomplished.

10 Goals  Which of our first goals would be a S.M.A.R.T goal?  Win showmanship.  Go to the fair and place 1 st in every class.  When I am a senior in high school I want to be able to win most of the classes I am entered in, and win showmanship.
