Setting Goals

Setting goals helps you identify where you want to go, what you will need along the way, and whether you are on course.

  • Set realistic goals. Consider educational, financial and personal goals.
  • Prioritize – what matters most to you?
  • Make a plan and determine what resources you need to achieve these goals.
  • Track your progress.
  • Congratulate yourself when you’ve reached a milestone!
