Who can help me reach this goal? This is a very important question, and your answer is also very important. An unachieved goal usually means we lack the self discipline to get there alone. So we need to lean on the discipline and accountability of another person. In some cases they might be partners who are moving toward a similar goal; in other cases they are mentors who are leading us and coaching us to go where they have already gone. Either way, this person is often the difference between success and failure in goal setting. What are all the steps I need to take to reach this goal? I like to simply write these things out as they come to mind, with no real regard for order or priority. Just get every logical step down so you can see exactly what is required. This is another reality check stage, but it can also be quite encouraging since your large goal has been reduced to bite-sized chunks!
So what kinds of worksheets should you get? Anything where you feel that your child needs further drill. We often have this notion that worksheets are just for math. This, of course, is not true. While they are excellent tools for reviewing math facts such as the multiplication tables and division facts, they are just as useful for reviewing parts of speech or the states in the union. When you're teaching your student to write, there are a whole host of worksheets online that you can use. Many of these include clipart that will help the students learn the sounds of letters and letter combinations. There are other sheets that help the student learn to write his or her numbers.
What are the obstacles between me and my goal? If there were no barriers, you'd be there already! So, why aren't you? Perhaps you have to eat out a lot due to your job, and it's hard to eat healthy meals away from home. Maybe you were pushed into a sedentary lifestyle due to an injury. Likely, your schedule is such that it is very difficult to find time for exercise. Write down every obstacle you can think of, big or small. What is the primary constraint, the one barrier which if removed would immediately move me toward my goal? From all the barriers you identified in Step 3, pick the most significant one. This will help you prioritize how you go about reaching your goal.
What do you mean by that? How will you know if you've arrived? A better goal statement is "I am going to lose 10 pounds, be able to do 50 push-ups without a break, and run 3 miles in under 25 minutes by my next birthday." No wiggle room there! You will know if you've succeeded or failed. And, assuming the targets are also appropriately challenging or significant, you will have a strong goal statement. Why do I want to achieve this goal? What are the benefits I'm seeking. This could be a very long list. Referring back to the fitness goal, you may want to look better at the beach, beat a friend in a race, improve your heart health or any number of other possibilities. The purpose of this step is to identify your deepest motivations, get them on paper, and refer to them as you progress towards your goal.
