What are the three primary steps I need to take to reach this goal? At this point you simply synthesize all the points from the previous step into the three logical big steps that will get you to your destination. For instance, back to the fitness scenario, the steps might be to establish a better eating-out routine, to join a fitness club, and to work out three times a week. Which habits (daily, weekly, monthly) do I need to establish to reach my goal? Don't miss the power of this step! Every big goal requires new habits if we are to get there, a new routine in some small or great way, usually on the daily and weekly level. Our lives really are simply the sum total of our habits. We change our lives primarily by changing our habits.
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.
Involve the Entire Body : No one likes to sit in class listening to a lecture for an hour. It gets boring and monotonous. To incorporate more fun into learning, try to engage the entire body. Have children move around the room. Play active review games. If you must lecture, have your students take a five minute break to stand up and wiggle their arms and legs. Fun doesn't have to be silly all the time. Simply moving around can make an otherwise boring lecture seem uplifting. Positive Reinforcement : One of the easiest ways to add some fun to your class is to use positive reinforcement. Students not only detest, but also dread classes that make them feel dumb. If your class is made to think they are excelling or performing well, they will be more likely to succeed. You will see smiles on their faces instead of looks of dread. The only way fun can be introduced into the school day is if the children feel comfortable letting loose. Giving positive reinforcement is the way to accomplish that goal.
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.
