Module 3 Lesson 2

Action:  Watch the video above, read the information below and complete the assignment at the bottom of the page.

A goal is an idea of something you want to achieve in the future.  It is a challenging target you set for yourself and commit to hitting. Goals are like the choices you make and the promises you keep to yourself.  They help you achieve milestones, grades, or awards; break bad habits; adopt useful habits; or achieve more in different areas of life.

In other words, goals are your secret weapons to making things better, ditching the not-so-great stuff you do, picking up awesome habits, and rocking it in different parts of your life. So, imagine them as your personal superpower for leveling up in life!

Remember that a goal without a plan is just a dream.  So when you set your goals, you need to establish the steps needed to reach that goal.  The goal should stretch you a little, but not be so far out of reach that it is overwhelming to work toward.

In your course journal, write down 3 goals for yourself.  One should be a goal for your physical wellbeing (could be something like the amount of sleep or exercise you will get), one should be a personal development goal (e.g., I will read something for 20 minutes each day, have a personal quiet time, etc), and one should be a service goal (something you will do each week to help someone else - let's be good humans).
