SP – College 4 – Long Term Goals



Last week you determined what success looks like for you, its time to work on goals to achieve your success.

Goals are an extremely powerful tool everyone can use to develop purpose, passion, and direction. They are the driving force behind all achievement, and success is dependent upon goals. 80% of successful people are completely focused on accomplishing a single goal, and they are 67% more likely to achieve that goal if they write it down. Many successful people comment of the importance of goal setting. This week we will create big goals and then chunk them down into smaller goals next week.

You might have a big goal to run a 5K, become Recruitment Chair, getting a part in a campus musical/drama event, or even to become student body president. Write your two big goals here:
