The air is filled with the excitement of parents getting the students ready to start another school year. Students are excited to get back with the friends. The meeting place is the school! The new school year begins it is almost met with a new beginning feeling. For some, this is their first year at a new school. For others, it is the beginning of a new year, where your grades and workload start at zero. We all know that will be changing quickly.
Make sure not to forget: Set your goals for the new year! What are you going to accomplish this year? Do you have an idea what you want to achieve in your studies? Sit down, while the year is new and figure out what your goals should be. Here are some tips for you:
- Write them down. As you are thinking about them, write them down. Nothing holds you more accountable if you write them down. Try a more advanced tip here – give them to your parents to review.
- Share them. Sharing your goals is a very good way to help hold yourself accountable. This could be your parents (I know they would probalby like to see them), a teacher or friends.
- Review them from time to time. Throughout the semester, pulling out your goals is one way to help track your progress. From time to time, something will change or need addressing. If you are reviewing your goals, then you can make the corrections necessary to reach your goals. Waiting till the end and looking back, could be the surprise that you don’t want.
I wish your new school well! I hope that your goals come true…
