Setting goals for success – Liz Rowell
Goal setting is one of the first things you need to do when setting out on a new challenge. The module encourages the students to identify some key goals for both their studies and their personal development and understand short and long terms goals and how to track your progress and keep working towards your end goal. The module talks about setting yourself up for success, adjustments along the way and how to cope when things aren’t tracking the way you’ve planned.
Activity: Mentors and students are invited to work on setting goals together.
Speaker: Liz Rowell
- Don’t be afraid to set goals, big or small – visualise how you want your future to be – career, family, personal life, travel, education, the decisions are all in your hands
- Take conscious steps every day to achieve those goals. Take an extra half hour to study, or leave your room and take a walk in the fresh air to clear your mind! Spend some time with friends, or create some alone time to think and chill out. It’s your choice. You are your own agent of change.
- Create a vision board. Flick through magazines and pictures and choose images that you’re drawn to, unconsciously. The ones you find yourself reaching out for instinctively. It’s a powerful way to unlock some of your deeper ideas, dreams and desire.
