Does your goal clearly and specifically state what you are trying to achieve? 

If your goal is particularly large or lofty, try breaking it down into smaller, specific SMART goals. 



How will you (and others) know if progress is being made on achieving your goal? 

Can you quantify or put numbers to your outcome? 



Is achieving your goal dependent on anyone else? 

Is it possible to reframe your goal so it only depends on you and not others? 

What factors may prevent you from accomplishing your goal? 



Why is achieving this goal important to you? 

What values in your life does this goal reflect? 

What effect will achieving your goal have on your life or on others? 



When will you reach your goal? 

Again, if your goal is particularly large, try breaking it down into smaller goals with appropriate incremental deadlines.

Attainable: Is attaining this goal realistic with effort and commitment? Yes

Do you have the resources to achieve this goal? If not, how will you get them? - Yes, this goal can be achieved with a number of after-school practices and equipment we already have.

Relevant: Why is this goal important to you? Hone in on why it matters. - This goal is important presenting our program earlier to all of the middle school students from our feeder school.

What specific steps must you take to achieve your goal?

This action plan may just get you started. Feel free to create a more detailed step-by-step plan.

What obstacles stand in the way of you achieving your goal?

There are only two obstacles that I see as of right now: additional events competing for our time and number of students needed to present our program.


How will you address the challenges if/when they arise? Identify the items we are doing and match the number of cadets needed to accomplish. Schedule training and arrange for sufficient transportation.

Explain what you have changed here.
