  1. Goal Setting If you don't know where you are going, you might wind up someplace else. -Yogi Berra

  7. Wish and a Goal Overview • Wishes are based on variables that you DO NOT control. • I wish that the weather was always perfect and there were no storms. • Goals are based on variables that you DO control. • If I want to lose weight I can say that my goal is to exercise for thirty minutes a day. I have control over the amount of time I spend exercising. • If I intend to get a certain grade on an exam, then that would be a goal because I control the amount of studying and preparation that I do. Remember, the key is CONTROL

  8. Wish versus Goal • Something you want to be true • May be impossible • There is no plan to make it come true • Not likely to come true • Something you want to be true • It is possible for you to make it come true • A plan can be done to make it come true • You may need help • May take a short time • May take a long time

  9. Examples • Losing weight. • Every day was a vacation day. • Become taller. • Graduate from high school. • Own a BMW. • Attend a concert. • Run faster. • Read every day. • Live in a city larger than Raleigh.

  10. Types of goals • Short-range goal can be done in 1 day. • Example: I will arrive on time to class. • Mid-range goal takes more than 1 day. • Example: I will earn a C on my next test. • Long-range goal can take months or years. • Example: I will earn a C or better in English 2.

  18. PLAN –designed for 10th graders • Over time, the PLAN and the ACT measure college readiness skills. • Lowest score is 1 and highest is 32. PLAN takes the number of questions you answered correctly and translates into a number between 1 and 32. Your composite score is simply the average of your test scores in English, Mathematics, Reading, and Science (rounded to a whole number). • The two scores directly under English and math only range from 1 to 16. They tell you how well you did in two specific areas and DO NOT necessarily equal your English or Math test scores.

  19. PLAN –designed for 10th graders • Estimated ACT score range is a prediction • Use the back of the Score Report for some ideas on improving your scores in the different subject areas.
