Identify one goal you have (i.e., “My goal is to…”). This can be related to your job, your family, your finances, starting a new business, purchasing a new car—anything you would like to gain in the future. Under your stated goal, write down five things you plan to do to achieve this goal. Next, have two people (e.g., family, friends, peers) identify five things they think you can do to accomplish this goal. Lastly, compare what you have written down to achieve your goal as well as what others have written and respond to the following questions: How would you react if none of the plans you made turned out the way they were supposed to? What if, in the middle of working toward your goal, the goal changed? If you reached your goal exactly as you planned it, what would you have learned about yourself? What type of life do you think you would lead if everything went according to your plans?
