When planning for our future it is important to have clear goals in mind and to understand the steps that need to be taken to achieve those goals. My long-term goal is to run my own counseling center and employee at least one other person. Some Skills I already possess that will allow me to succeed with this plan are my ability to relate to people and be consistent in following the steps needed, even though it will be a long and tedious process. To ensure that I can achieve my goal of owning my own counseling center there are goals that need to be achieved ahead of time. One goal would be to have the contacts to be able to start a business and the clientele to keep that business running, the other is to become a clinical licensed social worker, which is a license that is needed to be able to practice independently in New York state. …show more content…
To build any business, you need to strong social skills and feel comfortable meeting new people. This is something I struggle with right now; I am naturally a quiet shy person who does not like to go to networking events or meet new people. I feel like I am socially awkward and have a hard time finding things to talk about. If I want to be able own my own business these are important skills to work on. The things I can do to work on those skills now is to do things such as going one town meeting or event each month and during those events make it a point to meet at least one new person. This will slowly build up my social circle and hopefully, the more I do it the easier it will

My career goal is to specialize in cardiology or neurology after majoring in biology for my undergraduate years and work with an organization that specializes in either one of those two fields. My life aspirations are to continue to gain more knowledge and excel in a career where I can be financially stable. I love learning; I love it when I learn something in one class and I am able to connect it to the concepts in another class or apply it to life in general. To me, learning is a lifelong process. However, I cannot describe how many times wonderful opportunities were available for me, but I could not take advantage of them because of my family 's financial circumstance.
The first goal consists of learning how to manage free time better and not getting too caught up in it. Back in high school, I barely had any free time and was that friend that could never meet up because I already had a prior commitment to soccer. For example, in 10th grade, after I was done with classes, I would have volunteer work for an hour, then volleyball practice, and then soccer practice. Being involved in so many time consuming extracurricular activities meant that I did not get home until after 10:30pm and could not start my homework since I would have to take a shower and eat dinner. Ever since I started attending Northeastern University, I have become less efficient in terms of time management. Never haven been used used to having so much free time after being done with class, I spent most of it wasting my time instead of working on assignments because I thought that I would have enough time to do it later. This eventually affected my sleeping schedule and taking three naps a day was customary. I still find myself following this same pattern during my second year and now that the teamwork workload has considerably increased, I cannot afford to take naps. Although my grades this semester have improved from the previous one, I

One primary long term goals that I have set for myself since freshman year was getting the best grades in high school and college to my own abilities. The way I reach this goal is that I use my time wisely in study halls or at home to get homework done. I work extremely hard in study halls to get as much homework done as I can because the less I take home the better because there are other things at home that I could be doing. Another one of my long term goals is going to college for something i 'll enjoy doing for the rest of the life. If I go to college to find a career that is not enjoyable than it could miserable going to work everyday. If you find a job that you enjoy you’ll never have to work a day in your life. I also try to set
I feel a bit lost if I do not need to go to school weekly, and I cannot believe that only 4 credits short of finishing my MSA degree. I have been enjoying the learning process that enables me to interact with professors and my classmates for the past year and a half. This is one of the milestones that encourage me continually keep my hard efforts to reach my goal, being a CPA. To be clear, my goal has never been changed. I have been paying massive action toward to the CPA exams. I am currently working for a small tax firm which allows me to learn the tax knowledge the most. I have been looking for a better return on my investment while I becoming more proficient in my competency area. Moving forward continuously, I know that the date just right
Out of everything that we 've learned this quarter, goal setting was something that stood out to me. There are a few times where I set a goal in my head but end up never achieving them, wether it was something very simple or more of a long term goal. A technique that stood out to me in our notes is, writing down your goals. I don 't I 've ever written down a single goal that I 've had. In class and in our notes we talked about how it is important to write down your goals and how you cannot just write the general idea of your goal, but how you need to be very specific in what it is you want to achieve. I think that in college it 's very important to set long, mid, and short term goals because somedays will be harder than others and you need
My ultimate goal is to receive my Doctoral degree in social psychology from University of California Berkeley or Stanford University. After receiving my Doctoral degree, I would like to pursue a career in academia by teaching and participating in research. I have also considered a career in research separate from academia, where I would be free to focus on research and less on teaching. My main career goal is to continue to do research and further knowledge in social psychology. The social psychology program at San Francisco State University would help me achieve this goal because they have a strong emphasis on research. The program requires research under a faculty member in their lab, starting one’s first day in the program. The program also
When I was about ten years old, I knew I one day wanted to be my own boss. It seems pretty crazy to want something so powerful at such a young age. Ten years later I still have that same desire. There is no doubt I have passion for leadership. Was I just born to be successful?
My experience with goal making has always been a rough affair. The goals were not a source of motivation or inspiration for me. Instead the goals were a one-time action and were never to be found again once written down. It is not that I did not want to succeed in my goals or get the satisfaction of completing my goals, it is simply that my goals did not fit my specific needs and were not easy to follow. It is only now that I realize my goals were far from specific and measurable, realistic and challenging, and within a timeframe. Within this framework for goals my goals can become more inspirational to me and become a part of my life rather than a passing event in my life.
