Personal Goal Setting

Many people feel as if they're adrift in the world. They work hard, but they don't seem to get anywhere
worthwhile.

A key reason that they feel this way is that they haven't spent enough time thinking about what they
want from life, and haven't set themselves formal goals. After all, would you set out on a major journey
with no real idea of your destination? Probably not!

Goal setting is a powerful process for thinking about your ideal future, and for motivating yourself to turn
your vision of this future into reality.

The process of setting goals helps you choose where you want to go in life. By knowing precisely what
you want to achieve, you know where you have to concentrate your efforts. You'll also quickly spot the
distractions that can, so easily, lead you astray.

Why Set Goals?

Goal setting is used by top-level athletes, successful business-people and achievers in all fields.
Setting goals gives you long-term vision and short-term motivation. It focuses your acquisition of
knowledge, and helps you to organize your time and your resources so that you can make the very
most of your life.

By setting sharp, clearly defined goals, you can measure and take pride in the achievement of those
goals, and you'll see forward progress in what might previously have seemed a long pointless grind.
You will also raise your self-confidence, as you recognize your own ability and competence in
achieving the goals that you've set.

Step 1: Setting Lifetime Goals

The first step in setting personal goals is to consider what you want to achieve in your lifetime (or at
least, by a significant and distant age in the future). Setting lifetime goals gives you the overall
perspective that shapes all other aspects of your decision making.

Step 2: Setting Smaller Goals

Once you have set your lifetime goals, set a five-year plan of smaller goals that you need to complete if
you are to reach your lifetime plan.

Then create a one-year plan, six-month plan, and a one-month plan of progressively smaller goals that
you should reach to achieve your lifetime goals. Each of these should be based on the previous plan.

Then create a daily To-Do List of things that you should do today to work towards your lifetime goals.

At an early stage, your smaller goals might be to read books and gather information on the
achievement of your higher level goals. This will help you to improve the quality and realism of your
goal setting.

Finally review your plans, and make sure that they fit the way in which you want to live your life.


SMART Goals

A useful way of making goals more powerful is to use the SMART mnemonic. While there are plenty of
variants (some of which we've included in parenthesis), SMART usually stands for:

 S – Specific (or Significant).
 M – Measurable (or Meaningful).
 A – Attainable (or Action-Oriented).
 R – Relevant (or Rewarding).
 T – Time-bound (or Trackable).

For example, instead of having "to sail around the world" as a goal, it's more powerful to say "To have
completed my trip around the world by December 31, 2015." Obviously, this will only be attainable if a
lot of preparation has been completed beforehand!

Further Goal Setting Tips

The following broad guidelines will help you to set effective, achievable goals:

 State each goal as a positive statement – Express your goals positively – "Execute this
technique well" is a much better goal than "Don't make this stupid mistake."

 Be precise: Set precise goals, putting in dates, times and amounts so that you can measure
achievement. If you do this, you'll know exactly when you have achieved the goal, and can
take complete satisfaction from having achieved it.

 Set priorities – When you have several goals, give each a priority. This helps you to avoid
feeling overwhelmed by having too many goals, and helps to direct your attention to the most
important ones.

 Write goals down – This crystallizes them and gives them more force.
 Keep operational goals small – Keep the low-level goals that you're working towards small

and achievable. If a goal is too large, then it can seem that you are not making progress
towards it. Keeping goals small and incremental gives more opportunities for reward.
 Set performance goals, not outcome goals – You should take care to set goals over which
you have as much control as possible. It can be quite dispiriting to fail to achieve a personal
goal for reasons beyond your control!
 Set realistic goals – It's important to set goals that you can achieve. All sorts of people (for
example, employers, parents, media, or society) can set unrealistic goals for you. They will
often do this in ignorance of your own desires and ambitions.

Achieving Goals

When you've achieved a goal, take the time to enjoy the satisfaction of having done so. Absorb the
implications of the goal achievement, and observe the progress that you've made towards other goals.

If the goal was a significant one, reward yourself appropriately. All of this helps you build the self-
confidence you deserve.


Key Points

Goal setting is an important method of:

 Deciding what you want to achieve in your life.
 Separating what's important from what's irrelevant, or a distraction.
 Motivating yourself.
 Building your self-confidence, based on successful achievement of goals.

Set your lifetime goals first. Then, set a five-year plan of smaller goals that you need to complete if you
are to reach your lifetime plan. Keep the process going by regularly reviewing and updating your goals.
And remember to take time to enjoy the satisfaction of achieving your goals when you do so.
If you don't already set goals, do so, starting now. As you make this technique part of your life, you'll
find your career accelerating, and you'll wonder how you did without it!

Dear Coach Johnstone,

The article that I choose to read is from Tomorrow’s Business Leader
Bringing Business and Education Together Fall 2015 and it is called the Top 5
Reasons to Consider a Career in insurance. I chose this article because it
seemed the most interesting because insurance can be a thing that people
just out of school can forget about. They look over insurance because they
are so focused on other things. The author from the Institutes did a great
job explaining why to consider insurance as a career.

The article is about why you should consider having insurance as a career.
Having insurance as a career is a good plan if you are not sure what you
want to be when you grow up. A reason to take insurance as you career is
that you will have a life outside of your work and that you will be rewarded
for your hard work. Also if you are looking for a career to have options this is
your career. You can choose from a variety jobs because insurance is used
for just about everything and everyone should have it. Finally, it does not
matter your educationally background because a variety of the positions can
be done by any degree.

From the article I learned that it is important to keep the insurance career in
mind because it can be a good job to help you when you do not know what
you want to do with your life. Additionally, insurance is not a hard job to do
because it does not matter the degree there is positions for the jobs. You
will also never be stuck you can move around and ty different jobs within the
insurance career. This career line is helpful for those who need a career that
does not require extreme difficulty.

Sincerely,

Kristin Beasley
Student

Dear Mr. Johnstone

The article, Recruitment, Recruitment, Recruitment! Is focused on recruiting new members to
the club Future Business Leaders of America and showing other people’s opinions about FBLA
and their passion about FBLA that influences people to join. Sharing each other’s experiences is
the big secret of getting people to join FBLA. Ways of recruitment would be flyers, emails,
recruitment booths, speaking in front of classes and Social Media, but the most valuable source
of recruitment is word of mouth because it gets people talking about how much fun and helpful
FBLA.

Future Business Leaders of America look to reqruit in Freshmen and Sophmore classes and
Business Students because they are just learning about all the new clubs people could join and
get involved with their school, but the reasons to join Future Business Leaders of America are
endless you would be able to earn scholarships, also have the ability to Travel with you FBLA
group and go new places meet new people. FBLA Can also be plenty of fun and learning for
everyone and getting job experience is amazing while having fun

FBLA thinks when a potential member grabs your flier or information. Their first Impression of
FBLA should be a great experience and your information should weigh out the pros of joining
FBLA instead of the cons. When potential recruits do join and become members it is important
that they have every opportunity they wish within the organization and enjoy every bit!

Sincerely, Conrad Hunter
