REFLECTING ON OUR GOALS FOR THE YEAR!

Hello friend, happy new month!

I’m writing to check in on you. How are you doing?

Could you spare a few minutes to answer these questions?

 Draw a cartoon face (emoji) showing   emotions to express how you are feeling right now)

………………………………………………………………..

Now use words to express how you feel.

From the words you already know, you may also pick from these words,

Focused ,Bored ,Weird ,Sassy ,Amused ,Courageous ,Eager ,Energetic ,Fulfilled ,Hopeful ,Inquisitive

……………………………………………………………………………………………….

………………………………………………………………………………………………..

Let us start by reflecting on what our big goal was, at the beginning of the year.

My big goal was

…………………………………………………………..

Did you achieve this goal? Or did you have more goals?

On a scale of 0- 10, where 0 equals to nothing done towards your goal and 10 equals to an accomplished goal, how do you rate yourself against the goal or the goals you set?

Goal                                                                                  Rate/ 10

  1. …………………………………………                             …………….
  2. …………………………………………                             ………………..

What is your overall score?

…………………………………………………………..

Kudos!

Thank you for reflecting. If your average score is below 3 for each goal,

What do you think you need to do?

………………………………………………………………..

If your score is over 5 for each score, what comment can you give yourself?

…………………………………………………………………

If your score is over 7, how best do you think you can maintain this?

…………………………………………………………………….

From your reflection, what are the three things you have done well in the last months? 

Take these as your stars!

I am a star at,

1……………………………………….

2…………………………………………..

3…………………………………………

Great, now come up with a wish list of the top three things (goals) to work on!

(These should be the things you still struggle with)

1…………………………………………………..

2…………………………………………………..

3…………………………………………………..

Now, answer this one star question.

What would you do, if you knew you couldn’t fail?

……………………………………………………………………………………..

Great job!

Now let us look ahead and set new goals for the next six months!

What is your big goal?

…………………………………………………………………………………………

……………………………………………………………………………………..

What do you wish to achieve?

…………………………………………………………………….

…………………………………………………………………..

What is the purpose of this goal?

Why is this goal important? Why does it matter to achieve this goal?

………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

For example if your goal is to do well in in your studies, how can that help others?

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

Note: Remember to give your goal a time frame and make it specific. Say if you want to perform better in class, when do you want to achieve this and how will you know you have achieved it, say which mark do you want to score in which subject?

If you feel like giving up, what will you do instead?

…………………………………………………………………

………………………………………………………………….

Bonus question!

If you found a super power, how would you use it to help the world?

Growth mindset tip 

“Did I win? Did I lose? Those are the wrong questions. The correct question is: Did I make my best effort?” If so, he says, “You may be outscored but you will never lose.” Carol S. Dweck

Thank you for taking the time to answer these questions!
