this must be done by tomorrow 5pm California time!!!
do the following:
For this assignment, I want you to craft a goal using the DAPPS rule to achieve one of your desired experiences while in college. What time management tool reviewed in this module would be most helpful to you in achieving your goal?
an example is:
In order to achieve your goal you have to craft it properly. Goals should be:
Dated: Effective goals have specific deadlines. Short-term goals have deadlines of a few weeks or months. A long-term goal has a deadline of a year or more.
Achievable: Effective goals can realistically be achieved within the deadline. It is unrealistic, for example, to say you will graduate from Cerritos College tomorrow since our class does not end until October 12th 🙂
Personal: Effective goals are personal to you, not to a loved one or anyone else. It is wonderful to say I am at Cerritos College to make my parents proud. However, for it to be personal, you have to want it for yourself not want it because someone else wants it for you.
Positive: Translate any negative words like won’t, can’t, don’t, stop, or quit into positive goals that focus your energy on what you will do. Rather than, “I’m going to stop procrastinating” say, I will complete my assignments one week early.
Specific: Effective goals state outcomes in specific measurable terms. If you aren’t specific, you can fool yourself into thinking you did better in school, or that you were more motivated. Hence, it is better to say “I will earn at least a 3.5 GPA this semester” versus saying “my goal is to do better this semester.” Without specifics how will you evaluate if you did better?
