We all know this is the time of year everyone sets resolutions, but do you understand the reasoning behind WHY goal setting should become a priority for not only yourself but for the students in your life?
By setting goals and teaching your students to set goals, you are:
Once you’ve determined your goals (whether they be for 2022 or the month of February), write them down! By writing your goals down and encouraging your students to write theirs down, you are creating a path towards success. It is proven that you are 42% more likely to achieve your goals if you write them down, according to a study on goal setting by Psychology professor Dr. Gail Matthews.
If they are stuck on what goal they want to achieve, give them some examples such as: starting writing in a journal once a week, give 1 compliment each day, send 1 card every week in the mail, take a break from social media one day each week, etc.
So go ahead…start dreaming, planning, writing, and achieving!
