Goal Setting

Have you ever heard someone say something similar to... ?

  • I want to learn to speak Spanish.
  • I'm going to pay off this credit card in 6 months.
  • I'm going to get an A in this class.

Each of these statements sets forth a goal. Your success in achieving your goals has a lot to do with how well you set them. This program discusses the importance of goals and demonstrates a process you can use to set goals for work, school, and your personal life.

Before you start, here are a few things to know.


  • The content of this program is presented in a single topic.
  • Your progress is monitored. You must successfully complete the topic to complete the program.
  • There are some questions at the end of the topic so you can evaluate your learning and identify information you would like to review. Don't worry, it's not a test and it's not graded. We call it a, "Check on Learning."


  • The program should only take about 15 minutes to complete.
  • Because there are no student accounts or retention of personal information, there is no bookmarking features. Users must complete the program in one session to be able to print a completion certificate at the end of the program.
