Instructions and Guidelines For

EDU 1020: Goals Assignment


1. Using the guidelines in Chapter One, create a long-term, mid-term and short-term goal in at least
three categories. Categories might be Health & Fitness, Education, Career, Romance,
Spirituality, Wealth, Travel, Hobbies etc.
2. Each goal should be only one complete sentence.
3. Your short-term and mid-term goal in each category should be benchmarks towards your long
term goal. Your goals in each category should correlate with each other.
4. Your long-term goals should be compatible. The achievement of one of your long-term goals
should not prohibit the achievement of one of your other long-term goals.
5. Your goals must follow the SMART guidelines which are:
Specific (How much? How Many? To what standard? )
Measurable (Can your success towards the goal be effectively determined?)
Achievable (Is the goal something you have control or influence over? Do you have the needed talents,
skills and resources to accomplish the goal or can you get them?)
Relevant (Will it make a difference in your life?)
Time Referenced (by when)

My Personal Goals By:

Taber T. Fellows
1st Category: Obtain My LCSW License by 2020
Long-Term Goal Statement: After receiving my MSW degree from The U of U. I will take the
States licensing exam and receive my LCSW License and work within the field by 2020 year end
Mid-Term Goal Statement: Attend, engage, and pass all required class at SLCC by the summer
of 2016 Then transfer to the University of Utah, (U of U).
Short Term Goal Statement: Attend, and pass all required class at SLCC during the spring 2015
semester. Register for SLCC graduation ceremony. Complete the transfer process to the U of U.

Action Steps: (Identify the concrete things you plan to do to reach your short-term goal in this
category.)
1. Walk daily to school to maintain health, attend all my classes and do the work given.
2. Mindfully taking one step at a time successfully completing each stage, independently.
3. Ask questions, use the recourses provided by SLCC, colleges, and personal instincts.
4. Study, research, read, and focus on remember as much of everything I learn, as I can.
5. Return thanks by giving my time, knowledge, and abilities to others that may have need.

Narrative Statement: How will your life look when you have achieved this long-term goal?
This will help you determine relevance and establish motivation.Through the epic experience of living the
life as of a dedicated full time college student, and effectively passing each class, that within itself will
have successfully taught me its overall targeted goal of teaching all a general knowledge with a maximum
learning experience possible.
What obstacles will you need to overcome or what are you willing to sacrifice to achieve your long-term
goal? (This step will help you determine achievability.) As a prior professional over the road truck driver,
I had to sacrifice the daily activities of my wife and children. So I could aid in my half of the
responsibilities as a parent, and too meet the needs of my children and my wife. Now that Ive returned to
school, looking yet again for another occupation, I sacrifice living a different lifestyle. I sacrifice having
the money I once had while working, however, now that Im a fulltime student thats able to work
because of furthering education, and to obtain a degree, the rights to have and posses the title of another
professional, this time in the mental/medical field.
Anther obstacle I must overcome is, to constantly stay on top of my assignment currently given to
me by each instructor, and receive a reasonable grade according to the work handed in.
Preferably, receiving an (A) and holding a 4.0 GPA would be Preferred, however, much I give up
regardless if its being homeless or simply hungry I still need to stay focused on making it happen and
endure until the end has been achieved.

I deserve this goal because: (This step will help you bolster your motivation.)
1. Successfully reaching my goal, means I can legally help others live a more balanced life and
happier.
2. Because it is my true calling. My true destiny. The true thing, that I feel fits me the way I
naturally. Helpful and always willing to share personal adversities that were successfully
closed in my perspective in a positive way, that educated me somehow in some way.
I hereby commit to myself to achieve this goal.
