I think having both short term and long term goals while your in school can both benefit your academic and personal life. There are a few reasons why I think that. One, when your in school at times you can get frustrated and maybe loose focus on what is important in the long run. Setting long term goals, can hopefully reset your focus, and look forward to the future. Two, I am one to believe it is never too early to plan for the future whether that is in 5 days or 5 years. Three, sometimes people change their minds, so it is good to have goals where you want to be.
With short term goals you can stay focused. Having goals when you need your work done is a good idea. Also I believe in having “fun time” goals. Especially in school you need to pace yourself. If you don’t you’ll just wear yourself out and probably will not accomplish what your trying to do. What do you think about setting GOALS?
