6 “We…believe that one reason so many high school and college students have so much trouble focusing on their studies is because they don’t have a goal, don’t know what all this studying is leading to.” Muriel James & Dorothy Jongeward 6

7 7 Research at Yale University Researchers asked members of the class of 1953 if they has specific, written, long-term goals. Only 3% did. 20 years later, the researchers contacted the same graduates to see what happened to them. The 3% with goals had lives that were measurable better that the 97% without goals. The 3% who has set specific goals had accumulated more personal wealth then the other 97% put together On Course 4 th Ed, Skip Downing

8 8 How to set a goal To be effective, a goal need five qualities Remember: “DAPPS” rule “DAPPS” is an acronym (word form from initial of names) – Dated – Achievable – Personal – Positive – Specific On Course 4 th Ed, Skip Downing Workbook – page 40

9 9 D - Dated Effective goals have specific deadlines Short term goal usually has a deadline within a few months or less Long term goal usually has a deadline of a year or more (sometimes 5-10 year) As deadline approaches, your motivation typically increases. This energy help you finish strong. If you don’t meet you deadline, you have an opportunity to examine what went wrong and create a new plan Without deadline, you might stretch the pursuit of a goal over your whole life time On Course 4 th Ed, Skip Downing Workbook – page 40

10 10 A - Achievable Effective goals are realistic Example – Running the marathon… Practice 1 week before the marathon by running around the block Practice 1 year before the marathon with someone that have done the marathon Set your limit: not too high and not too low Ask your self: “Can this be done?” On Course 4 th Ed, Skip Downing Workbook – page 40

11 11 P - Personal Effective goals are your goals, not someone else’s Ask yourself if your current goals contribute to your personal dreams On Course 4 th Ed, Skip Downing Workbook – page 40

12 12 P - Positive Effective goals focus your energy on what you do want that on what you don’t want Translate negative goals into positive goals Example – Negative: I will stop being late to class – Positive: I will arrive on time to every class – Negative: I will stop eating junk food – Positive: I will start eating healthy food On Course 4 th Ed, Skip Downing Workbook – page 40

13 13 S - Specific Effective goals state outcomes in specific, measurable terms Example – Good: My goal is to do better this semester – Better: I will achieve a 3.5 GPA or better this semester – Good: My goal is to play better at basketball – Better: I will achieve at least 80% or better on the basketball court On Course 4 th Ed, Skip Downing Workbook – page 40

14 14 Dated: specific deadlines for goals Achievable: realistic goals Personal: effective goals are your goals, not someone else’s Positive: focus your energy on what you do want rather than what you don’t want Specific: effective goals state outcomes in specific, measurable terms How to set a Goal: DAPPS Rule On Course 4 th Ed, Skip Downing Workbook – page 40

15 15 Life Roles A life role is an activity to which we regularly devote large amounts of time and energy For example: – College student – Parent – Significant other – Athlete – Etc… What roles do you play? On Course 4 th Ed, Skip Downing Workbook – page 40

16 16 Life Dreams We have dreams in each life role – Example College student – to get a bachelor degree Parent – to raise and support my children Significant other – to have a happy and health relationship Athlete – to participate in the Olympic On Course 4 th Ed, Skip Downing Workbook – page 40

17 17 Committing to your Dreams Do not doubt yourself, doubting discourages creative energies to develop a plan. A clear plan helps you stay on track and motivates you to reach your goals. Visualization will help motivate you to see the end results. Visualize your dreams then make them a reality. On Course 4 th Ed, Skip Downing Workbook – page 40
