Many people label goals as long, medium or short range. Decide what goals fit which category then look at the time you have available. Set priorities with the goals. Decide which are the most important. Make sure that the time you give each goal meets the priority of the goal. Don’t give a few minutes to the highest prioritized goal and several hours to one of the low priority goals. If necessary, change your time commitments to meet the goals.
To do well in the classroom, goals must be set in many areas. It may helpful to divide your goals into segments- daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly (or semester), annually. Dividing goals this way lets you know that you have overall goals and shorter, more easily met goals. It gives you an opportunity to accomplish some goals while keeping the larger picture in mind. Remember that if you set a goal in one segment of your life, it may affect another segment. In other words, if you decide to study three hours a day, you may have to visit with your friends one hour less. If you decide to change jobs, it may affect your times to study. Keep the big picture in mind when setting goals.
B. Write out at least 1 Outcome Goal for both an individual athlete Goal and a team goal that is specific to your practice or training. You also need to write out 1 Outcome Goal for both an individual athlete and your team that is specific to competition. These will not be bullet points or phrases. That will be 4 total Outcome Goals that have all the characteristics of quality written goal statements. If you are doing a personal or staff goal setting program you should also have 4 Outcome Goals. If you have a developed GS program in place please comment that these are past goals and identify them as old goals now revised. (15 points)
1. You also need written Process and Performance Goals that lead to each of the 4 Outcome Goals. There must be at least 1 Process and 1 Performance Goal for each Outcome Goal. There could be several Process Goals leading to 1 or more Performance Goals that will ultimately help reach the Outcome Goal stated. Remember, Process Goals first lead to Performance Goals and accomplishing performance goals lead to fulfilling Outcome Goals. Or you establish an Outcome Goal, then set a Performance Goal to reach the Outcome and set a Process Goal to reach the Performance Goal. Each of the goals (Outcome, Performance, Process) should have the qualities of good goal statements (SMART).
2. You should be identifying goals that can be implemented for practice and competition or if you are doing personal development something that provides goals for different areas of your life (physical, spiritual, social, intellectual, etc)
3. Write these goals out making sure you use the goal setting guidelines outlined in pages 206-215. They should be full statements that meet the following criteria as much as possible; specific, measurable, stated in the positive, completion date, etc.
You will be formulating a Goal Setting (GS) program for your team. Realizing that we are all at different stages of GS knowledge and application in our programs and personal life this assignment will provide the opportunity for you to stretch a little and take GS to a new and hopefully enhanced level. So to allow for the unique differences I will set up three categories from which you can select.
Then, whereas I plan to pursue my career goals as a Music Agent, it is mandatory to comprehend what constitutes the work of being an agent and what it will be expected from me in this profession.
1. Implement 10 points
You need to now set the plan in motion with set dates (actual calendar dates or set dates in the weeks of your season) when the GS plan gets implemented. This does not have to be major time commitment if done in small blocks of time. You can even use preseason dates to implement.
2. Evaluate 5 points
When, where and how will individuals or the team get feedback on goals? These could be covered in these ways
-When will you schedule meetings
-Discussion among subgroups on your team (by position)
-Provide feedback after practices
What process will you use if goals are not being met or being exceeded to quickly or easily. Goals need to be changed.
Setting goals give you a road map as to where you want to be. It is important to remain flexible with long range goals in case your circumstances change. Always congratulate yourself when you achieve a goal and mark it off your list. You can look back to that achievement while starting to work on the next goal.
Goal setting is important for academic success. To successfully set and plan a goal, you must state the goal as an outcome, specify actions and measurement. The clearer and more specific the goal, the more likely your chances of achieving it.
B. Remember that athletes should be involved with you as they set personal goals and the team has input into the team goals.
Provide a brief description on how you plan to accomplish this important phase of actually setting the goal. 5 points
