Building Character for Success

“Creating Your Universe”

Lesson 9.14

Created By: Pam Gunter

challenge for the week follow up
Challenge for the Week – Follow Up
  • Before getting started, would anyone like to share a personal experience how they used the 5 steps to resolve differences or a conflict? How did it work? Do you need to practice to make it truly effective?
  • Materials Needed:
    • Chalkboard/whiteboard.
    • Each group needs a piece of paper and pencil.
  • Classroom Setup:
    • Divide into groups of 2-3.
the activity
The Activity
  • Explain that there are some people who live life by chance, others design their future by setting goals and achieving them.
  • In small groups of 2-3 students have them take 5-10 minutes to write down the steps of building a house. (designing blueprints, excavation, plumbing, electrical, etc.)
  • After they are finished, have a group volunteer to write down the steps of building a house on the board.
  • Ask if anyone in the other groups have any suggestions or ideas they need to add to the list.
  • Go around the room until they feel they have included everything on the list.
  • Ask the students how many believe that they could go out and build a fully functioning and stable home now that they have their list.
the activity1
The Activity
  • Explain that much like planning and constructing a sturdy and fully functioning home, goals take time and effort to achieve them. Just taking a few boards out and nailing them together won’t give us a sturdy home.
  • Many people follow the SMART”ER” format to develop goals.
      • Specific – What do you want to achieve?
      • Motivational – How much do you want it?
      • Accountable – Can you measure your progress?
      • Responsible – Is it reasonable and respectful?
      • Time – How long will it take to complete it?
      • Ethical, enjoyable, exciting
      • Resourced – Do you need external support? What will you sacrifice?
the activity2
The Activity
  • Explain that in addition to goal setting is the need to develop strong organization and time management skills, to organize projects. Some projects take time so we need to organize and prioritize them.
      • Prioritize your projects or activities daily.
      • Keep a detailed daily schedule or checklist.
      • Plan ahead, refrain from procrastination.
      • Reward yourself when you reach a goal or a project is completed.
  • Projects, events and tasks can vary from day to day on level of importance; one day your priority could be practicing for a concert, the following day it could be studying for a test. If you have multiple tasks, prioritize them based on level of importance, time required to complete them, and resources needed to complete them.
  • Avoid procrastination. Often times it is easy to procrastinate projects because you’re missing something for the project, or you think it is going to take too much time so you “don’t want to get started right now.”
the object of the lesson
The Object of the Lesson
  • Goal setting helps set direction and purpose in life.
  • Organizing and prioritizing projects helps reduce stress, uncertainty, anger, frustration and eliminates or greatly reduces feelings of personal failure.
  • Accomplishing goals and tasks builds self-esteem, builds personal character, will help improve grades, and will help develop every aspect of your future.
  • Achieving goals and projects takes effort, attention and discipline.
  • Make the outcome rewarding! Feel great about your accomplishments and enjoy the feeling of peace and relief when you achieve them.
challenge for the week
Challenge for the Week

Encourage the students to set 2-3 goals following the SMARTER format. Also encourage them to make a daily checklist or keep a daily schedule to help them remember what and when projects are due.

Remind them of the consequences of procrastination. Procrastination only creates frustration and pain. So, make good and right choices to avoid difficult consequences.

Be sure to remind them to reward themselves for a job well done!
