I like to use the following: Black ink pens During Instruction Set Up Clear a bulletin board that you will use to display the students' Life Maps at the end of this lesson. Using borders designed like a road would be ideal.
By Gene Donohue The car is packed and you're ready to go, your first ever cross-country trip. You put the car in gear and off you go. A little while into the trip you need to check the map because you've reached an intersection you're not familiar with.
You panic for a moment because you realize you've forgotten your map.
But you say the heck with it because you know where you're going. You take a right, change the radio station and keep on going. Unfortunately, you never reach your destination. Too many of us treat goal setting the same way.
We dream about where we want to go, but we don't have a map to get there. What is a map? In essence, the written word. What is the difference between a dream and a goal?
Once again, the written word. Goal setting however is more than simply scribbling down some ideas on a piece of paper. Our goals need to be complete and focused, much like a road map, and that is the purpose behind the rest of this article. If you follow the 7 goal setting steps I've outlined in this article you will be well on your way to becoming an expert in building the road maps to your goals.

This is called non-integrated thinking and will sabotage all of the hard work you put into your goals. Non-integrated thinking can also hamper your everyday thoughts as well.
We should continually strive to eliminate contradictory ideas from our thinking. Develop goals in the 6 areas of life: Setting goals in each area of life also helps in eliminating the non-integrated thinking we talked about in the 2nd step.
Write your goal in the positive instead of the negative. Work for what you want, not for what you want to leave behind. Part of the reason why we write down and examine our goals is to create a set of instructions for our subconscious mind to carry out.
Your subconscious mind is a very efficient tool, it can not determine right from wrong and it does not judge. It's only function is to carry out its instructions. The more positive instructions you give it, the more positive results you will get.Planner with Pen Holder -Academic Weekly, Monthly and Yearly Planner.
