Setting Goals Isn’t Just for New Year’s Eve!

Setting Goals Isn’t Just for New Year’s Eve!

The start of a new school year is a great time to stop and think about what you want to accomplish over the academic year.  Now, that you’re a few weeks into classes, take a few minutes to think about what it is YOU want to accomplish.  Are you shooting for a particular grade point average?  Do you need to do well in a particular course because it is a graduate school requirement?  Are you thinking about taking the MCAT’s or working on graduate school applications or ramping up for a job or internship search?

You can go through the motions of checking off a list – I often hear students say “just tell me what I need to do.”  Goals are different – they are NOT just to do’s on a list.  Goals have a higher purpose.  They should help you achieve something.  Goals should challenge you, help you strive for something you may or may not be able to reach without focus and hard work.  Goals help you tell your story to others.  They allow those around you to support you and connect you to resources and people who understand what you are trying to accomplish.  People with goals have a vision.  People with a vision have dreams.

September can be one of the busiest times of the year!  You’re back to school, back to friends, and back to work.  Make sure you take the time to set your goals               for the semester and for the academic year.  Talk to your friends, relationship managers, and others at Student Experience about what it is you want to accomplish.  Make sure your list of daily to do’s align with the goals you’ve set.

We hope you have a successful fall semester – dream big, have a vision of your future, and set goals that make your dreams come true.
