Goal setting is the process of thinking about the future you want, and the motivation you need to make that future your reality. This process helps you determine WHERE you want to be, and if designed correctly,  HOW you need to get there. By creating goals, you create a long-term vision.  You give yourself a purpose and provide yourself a focus.  By concentrating  on your goals, you can use time-management strategies to help you to achieve more.

This course is designed to be an introduction to Goal Setting, helping you to understand what a goal is, the types of goals you can develop, different strategies and methods for goal design, and more. By the end of this course you will have a complete understanding of goals and how they are designed, as well as ideas on methods you may want to use in writing your own goals.

This course is an introduction, therefore there is more that can still be learned about goals and goal setting. This course does NOT go through the process of writing goals, only introduces you to goal writing and strategies.
