Did you succeed in achieving your action steps since the last meeting? If yes, please state which action steps you were able to complete. If no, please explain the challenges that you experienced. (If first meeting, write ‘first meeting’ here.):
This was my first meeting. However, we did discuss our goals and also our future plans.
Please state your goal using the SMART Method: Specific: Avoid generalities! Your goal should have specific details so you know what you are achieving. Measurable: Make sure you have solid criteria for establishing your progress toward your goal. Achievable: It doesn’t have to be simple or easy, but it should be possible. Rewarding: Your goal must be something that is meaningful and worthwhile. Timely: Having specific dates for beginning to finishing goals keeps you on track Example: “My goal is to receive a Sports Internship by May 1st”:
My goal using the SMART method is based on an academic achievement which I want to accomplish. Lately I didn't do well on my math exam for my 102 class. My math class is challenging, and it requires a lot of work. Before you get to take the exam, you must first complete a series of topics. Since I didn't pass the first test, I will need to redo these topics to have another chance at taking the exam again. My goal is to complete all the topics, and also take the test by next week. I want to improve my grade on my test, and also pass the class with at least a 90 or higher. To keep track of my progress towards my goal I will use the pie system which tracks my progress in my class. I will also study as much as I can for my test and try to get a high score on my first attempt, so I wont have to stress out as much on my second test. To me this goal would definitely feel like an accomplishment for me. Math has always been a challenging subject for me and to pass this class would mean a lot to me.
Please list the actions steps you will take to achieve your goals stated above. These are action steps that will be completed by next meeting. Example: “1. Finish my resume. 2. Talk with my advisor. 3. Submit a sports internship application at two institutions.”:
The steps which I will take to accomplish this goal are very simple, but also very important. 1. Complete all topics on pie chart. 2. Take practice tests/ analyze what kind of projects I am dealing with. 3. Practice and study these topics. 4. Take the exam first attempt and try to score high. 5. Take the second exam and try to pass my exam with an A or higher.
How have the Society speakers or SNT meetings helped you achieve your goals or changed your life?:
The SNT meeting that I had was brief. However, it made me realize what I can do in life and how I can impact the world. It has made me more confident. I also feel like I have a purpose and that I can be a part of the change. Our discussion in my SNT meeting has helped me to realize that if I plan goals and have a purpose, I can most definitely accomplish them. They can change my life because they are meant to help you work towards a goal or something that you want to accomplish. The format of these SNT meetings and the SMART methods allow you to accomplish your goals.
