Check-point Setting Goals
What do me except to get from this course, I want to get top grades in my hospital administration courses, and of course that’s up to me by setting goals. I have always been a person who strives to do the best I can, and be on time with my assignments. I have set time aside to study and complete at least two assignments per day, so first thing I did was call family and friends to let them know what my hours of study would be, Second thing I did was learn how to record a program on TV so I could watch it later, and third I set up a little cork board above my computer with a schedule of assignments, so as I accomplish them I can mark them off as I go instead of having to look them up each time, and this is very helpful to me. The last thing I did was unplug the phone before I get started on assignments, because it is one of my biggest distractions. This is not a difficult task and it aligns with my values. I think it’s important to set time lines and stick with them.
Identify two long term goals:
My first long term goal is to finish my courses at Axia, get good grades, and finish on time. This would go along with getting that long term job I wanted for a long time. I hope to accomplish this by April 2012.
My second long term goal is to pay off my house by 2016, and this go in hand with finishing college and getting the job I want.
Some of the smaller goals would be to read some books on management within the next 6 months, and talk to people that have chosen management as their career. I feel this would not be too difficult to accomplish over the next year. [continues]
