It is enormously difficult to sit down and write a personal goal that is concise and reflects who I am and what I am working towards. Many goals that I have do not have a concise finish line. Others that do have an ending point seem almost miniscule against the larger backdrop of my life.
Some broader goals that I have are to never let my life stagnate, constantly be learning, live happy, and to empathize with everyone I can. I have more than just these goals, but many other goals can fall under or fit within these previous four goals. In fact, these four goals fit within each other. For example, it may be my goal to empathize with other people so that I can learn something new from their perspective. In learning something new my life doesn’t stagnate, and the challenges that change can bring is something that can make me happy at times. I suppose if I really had to pick a singular goal that I live my life by I would say that I live to be happy. But happiness is such a difficult thing to concretely strive for so it helps to break goals into easier chunks to process.
Some more concrete goals I have, include finding a good research opportunity for me to work for over the summer, apply and get into a good graduate school, find and apply for scholarships to help pay for my undergraduate and graduate degrees, and get good grades. These goals are while fairly large all have fairly concrete steps and ways to meet them.
I have other goals that while are not terribly broad, are difficult to plan exact paths to accomplish them. For example I consider myself a feminist and I am someone who when I see inequality in the world want to do something about it. To this date the most useful thing I have found that I can do to promote equity in the...

... polylactide reducing the cost of the overall polymer. When this semester concludes I will have had experience using a TGA, DMA, DSC, and SEM in a laboratory environment to characterize the properties of a polymer composite that I created.
When I am not researching in a lab I am usually in my dorm working as community advisor (also known as RA in some universities) talking to residents about various academic and personal issues they may have. When a lot of my life is very academically oriented, I really enjoy the chance to get to work with people seeing people develop in their first year of college.
To sum everything up I believe I would be an excellent candidate to work in the NASA LARSS program. There is a lot for me to learn from NASA, and with the opportunity to research in a NASA lab I believe I will get to experience a host of new and interesting challenges.
Intellectual goals have always been in the back of my mind. Growing up my parents always emphasized the importance of education because neither went to college and they saw the flourishing need for degrees to apply for many jobs. This encouraged me to achieve the highest GPA I could and challenged myself with every honors class my school offered. My goal for the next four years, is to earn a 4.0 GPA, receive honors in my major of biology, and to continuously challenge myself with my coursework. I will accomplish my goal by discussing class options with my advisors and studying hard, whether it be by myself, in a learning center, or within a study group.
I get up every morning looking forward to work and seeing everyone there. I love my job as a laboratory manager and I am excited everyday to be able to contribute to the scientific community, and the public as a whole. Along the way I have been recognized in a lot of ways. I graduated at the top of the class. I won a leadership award because of the club I started and led in school helped so many students get through college in the LGBT community. I became an honors ambassador and guru and loved it so much I give back to that community as a local alumni when I can. I even became intramural battleship champion for three years in a row with my
Everyone's goals and desires are different. One person's idea of happiness will be a lot different than another's. I have found the best approach to setting goals is the simple approach. Break it down into categories and then expound on each one. Do some brainstorming
One goal that I work hard at daily is to try to do well in high school. I try to involve myself in any activity that I can, both academically and socially, so that I can graduate with honors. The reason why I do this is because I plan on going to college, and I would like to be able to get accepted into any school that I apply to. Going to college alone would be a major achievement for my family and I, because I will be the first person in my family to attend college. Immediately after I graduate, I want to start my career as police investigator/detective.
Life goals are something everyone wants to accomplish, but how will they do it? Well, I have a few life goals and a plan to make it happen. My life goals are so important to me I have already started to accomplish them. These goals will take time to accomplish, but I’m on the right track.
Goals give you something to measure yourself against and give you direction. Currently, my main goal is to graduate from East Carolina University with a bachelor’s degree of science in engineering with a concentration in biomedical engineering. My anticipated time to graduation is five years with a GPA of 3.5 or higher. Beyond getting my bachelor’s degree at East Carolina University, I would like to go to medical school and become a doctor focusing on prosthetics. In order to make my goals a reality, I will have to work diligently to remain on track throughout my schooling. Additional goals that I have set for myself are to complete homework assignments by the time they are due, reading assigned material before it is discussed in class, doing well in each of my courses this semester, successfully participating in extracurricular activities, graduating with a bachelor’s degree in engineering, getting a position as an engineer, and becoming a leader within both the engineering community and the general community. A world-class engineering student woul...
Goals play a very essential role in the organization of responsibilities and how my mind works. I am currently pursuing a Bachelor’s in criminal justice with a concentration in Trauma Studies. Setting goals for my major is what keeps me focused and motivated in achieving it. My goals are to acquire a degree in criminal justice that challenges me to work harder and measure the skills and obstacles that come with it. Passionate, determined, and understanding is what I hope to gain from following my goals and aspirations in this field. My aspirations as a criminal justice major is to bring change, even the slightest change that could help an individual in life. A change in the way the law is viewed or enforced, a change in the sentencing of criminals.
The goals I set for myself are plenty. There are goals that I am very passionate about. For one, I took a public speaking course this spring semester and loved it. In the letter I wrote that by the end of it I wanted to become someone who could take risks and be a confident individual. Slowly but surely I’m growing into that person. There was a lot of things I wrote that made me realize how upset I was with the person I used to be. I told myself not to be influenced by the media and to make choices for myself. Something that this class taught me to further accomplish. The ways in which my critical thinking has changed is by
I plan on achieving my dream by reaching out and getting my thoughts on human interactions out there. I would like to talk to people, create a blog and write about what I think would be right and what would change the world for the better. As for my other goals, such as graduating from a good university, hopefully, UCLA, I am going to try very hard in school and work now
What is my personal purpose? Is a question that I have never thought to ask myself until recently. Then when I started learning more about a personal purpose I started wondering if I have one and what it was. I never thought of myself has having a real purpose until a watched an interview Will Smith had did and he had said “When your life means something to someone other than yourself than you have a purpose.” That is when I realized that I have a purpose. My purpose is that I am the hug that let others know it is going to be ok. My personal goals is to be genuinely happy with myself and life and to make my parents proud, my career goal is to own my own business and being successful at doing so, finally, my educational goal is to get my bachelors degree and grauate with honors and even moving on to getting my masters. Having goals is important to me because I know that while I am in the process of accomplishing them I will have something great to look forward to in the end.
Although I have many goals in life, two stick out to me the most. They stick out in every decision I make and they help me form good decisions. What I want most importantly in life is to become a pharmacist and to create a family with someone I love. I want the family most importantly because I was raised in a very tight Greek family. I want to raise my kids in that tight Greek family as well. Becoming a pharmacist is also a very important goal because I want stability in my job so that I can raise my family without major money issues. I also think it is very important for people to be healthy so that job would allow me to provide health care.
