Setting Goals

Setting goals is a process of identifying and defining the aims, achievements, and values you wish to fulfill. By making goals concrete and specific you solidify your commitment and ownership of those aspirations. Ask yourself if your goals are consistent with your personal characteristics, abilities, and level of determination.

Sometimes putting pen to paper clarifies our thoughts of what we would like to achieve. This exercise it designed to help you with goal setting as a first time college student, but it may also be helpful at other times in your life!
