Today is Goal Setting Day!
My goal today is to get you to think about how to set a goal and how to reach it. Most people don't really set a goal, they just have an idea about what they should do. "I'm going to get a better job." is not a goal, it is just a statement. A real goal has some planning involved. " I'm going to make an appointment with a vocational counselor at the Prince Albert Community Service Centre to get the help I need to get a part time job that pays me $15.00 an hour by June 1st." There is a goal. It says what you want, what you are going to do, and when you are going to do it. That is a much better goal. Now with the help of the Vocational Counselor you can make a plan for what has to be done to obtain that job. Here is a tip, look at our website and we have a link to a free goal setting certificate class. It pays to set an goal, make a plan and reach the goal. It feels great when your plan comes together. Set a goal today!
