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.
It's helpful having printable worksheets for something like this, because parents often go through quite a few of these before the child masters writing the numbers or letters correctly. What is my goal? It must be specific, challenging and attainable. Many people set but don't achieve their goals because the goals are simply too vague, too small or too big. For instance, "I'm going to get in shape this year" is a very poor goal.
In all these areas, but especially during the learning of arithmetic, practise and rehearsal is one of the most ways for students to improve their mastery of the topic. When learning arithmetic, repeatedly doing sums for a long period, with little variation, can soon get boring for many students. Before long, their attention can start to wonder, and as we all know - this is not conducive to learning. Quite the opposite, students generally learn best when enjoying the subject, and as a result many math teachers have introduced a variety of math games into their classrooms - and one such game that is very popular is math bingo.
How committed am I to reaching this goal? Now that you've thought it through quite thoroughly, how passionate are you about going there? You can describe it with words or simply rate yourself out of ten. If you are not significantly committed to reaching a goal, consider dropping it and developing one that fires you up, rather than feeling guilty for an extended period of time before quitting. What's one simple thing I can do right now, at least today, to move toward my goal? It doesn't need to be a big thing, it just needs to be something. The sooner you take action, the sooner you will feel that sense of progress, and the sooner you will reach your destination.
