This month, I want to ask you a question: What is it that you want to achieve in 2016? Perhaps it’s deciding your major, finding an internship, improving your physical health or overcoming a challenge. Whatever it may be, the more specific you are about your goal will result in a higher likelihood of achieving your resolution.
The following video explains what S.M.A.R.T. goals are and how you can apply the concept to your New Year's resolutions:
Once you set your S.M.A.R.T. goal, declare it, write it down and own it! You will then want to create a list of specific action steps that you’ll follow to reach your end goal. Having this timeline of steps is vital to staying on track and holding yourself accountable. For Society members, the final piece of the puzzle is to join a Success Networking Team, better known as an SNT. Share your S.M.A.R.T. goal in a group of like-minded peers to get advice, tips, support and ideas for how you can better achieve what you set out to do. To join an SNT, contact your Chapter Leaders.
What are your goals? Please share them with us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat using both #theNSLS and #2016SMARTgoal.
I hope you all have a great start to the New Year and new semester.
