Step 3: Make an Action Plan • For each short-term SMART goal you’ve written: • Brainstorm everything you’ll need to do to reach your goal. • Cross out any ideas that don’t seem useful and combine those that are similar. • Determine a logical order for the things that you will need to do to reach your goal. • Set deadlines for each action you need to take to meet your goal. • Determine who you may need to help you reach your goal and share your goal with them.

  9. Action Plan - Example • My Short-term SMART goal is to improve my science vocabulary this semester. • I know that building my science vocabulary will help me to do well in science now and will help me to prepare for all of the science classes I have to take in the future in order to be ready for medical school • Brainstorm - What steps can I take to reach my goal?

  10. Action Plan - Example • Which ideas don’t seem useful or realistic? • Which ideas are repetitive and can be combined? • In which order should I take these steps? • Set deadlines for each action you need to take to meet your goal. • What tools or resources do I need to accomplish these steps? • Who can help me take these steps and reach this goal?

Ask them for help in getting started. • Make time! You may have to give up something else. • Use a planner and schedule in time for working on your goal. • Use the Naviance To-Do list or make your own and cross off the tasks you complete.

  15. Step 5: Don’t Give Up! • Ideas for persisting: • Check-in with yourself and your goal. • Think back to the original goal and why you set it. Is it still something you want to accomplish? What is stopping you? Do the steps you set up for reaching the goal still make sense? Do you need to add in more steps? Do you need to adjust the timeline? • If you’re having trouble reaching your goal, ask for help! • Take control where you can. • Focus on being positive. • If things don’t turn out like you expected, focus on what you learned in the process. • Appreciate what you have accomplished. • Learn from mistakes

  16. Step 6: Making Goals SMARTER • E = Evaluate • Evaluate your progress regularly. • Did you complete your to-dos? • Are you making progress toward your goal? • Did you meet your goal? • If yes, how? What helped you reach your goal? Did you put in your full effort? • If no, why not? What kept you from reaching your goal? What can you do differently?

  17. Step 6: Making Goals SMARTER • R = Revise • Revise your plan or goals as needed. • Are your goals the right goals? • If you accomplished your goals, write new ones. • If you didn’t accomplish your goal, consider if you need to revise your goal or your plan. • Is there another step you need to take before you can reach your goal? • Is your goal achievable and relevant? • Is there someone who can help you? • Are there resources you need that you don’t have? • Are there skills or knowledge you need to gain before you can accomplish your goal?
