Goal Setting

A goal is what we hope to achieve   within a specific certain period of time .Goal setting is a guide or road map  for achieving one’s plans within a certain period of time. To achieve anything in life, there must be discipline , dedication and determination.We must also communicate our goals with our parents and tell it to God through prayers .

                          TYPES OF GOALS

We have short –term goals and long- term goals.

SHORT TERM GOALS are what we want to achieve in a short period of time e.g in a day, in a week or in a month.

LONG – TERM GOALS refers to what we want to achieve in a long period of time, e.g. in a year, in three years, in twenty years or more than that.

Importance of Goal setting

Goal setting help us to:

  • Helps us to accomplish what we want.
  • Makes us happy when we achieves the set goal.
  • To add value to our life.
  • Makes us productive.
  • spend time wisely
  • have direction for our lives
  • measure and appreciate whatever little achievement that we must have achieve now

Steps for achieving goals

The first step in achieving your goal is prayer; you must pray for God’s help.

When you have prayed, write down your goal.

This is important so that you do not forget what you have set out to achieve.

The second step is to write down the things you need to do to achieve the goal.

What would it take to achieve that goal?

This second step is a very important one because it really serves as a guide towards achieving the goal.

For example, for the short-term goal of paying attention in class, the steps could be:


1 Tell your friends that you intend to pay attention to the teachers and what they are saying.

2 Sit quietly during classes and do not get up throughout each class.

3 Do not talk to others while the teacher is talking.

4 Ask questions when you need to understand something better.

5 Write down notes.

6 Do the class exercises.

The third step is to check or review your progress.

This is where you check to see if all the things you are doing to guide you to achieve your goals are really helping you to achieve them. Still using our short-term goal example of paying attention in class, you will know that the steps are working if you find yourself more attentive in class, because you did the things you wrote down to be the guidelines you needed to do.

The fourth step is to continue the steps until you reach or achieve your goal.


Prayers: O lord, help us to set good goal and achieve it.in Jesus name. Amen.
