In this lesson, you brainstormed some goals for the school year
and then set a timeframe to achieve them using a goals email.
To do this, you:
Brainstormed three goals that are clear, realistic, and time-limited.
Wrote your goals in an email message addressed to yourself.
Formatted your text to draw attention to your goals.
Then added emojis and an image to personalize your email.
Finally, you scheduled your email to arrive on a date that is related to your particular goal.
Drafting a goals email is an effective way to plan your school year from the beginning.
But you can set goals for yourself at any time during the year!
Schedule monthly emails to check in with yourself about the steps you have taken toward reaching a goal.
Or, set deadlines to prepare yourself for projects that will take more than a few days to complete.
Then, schedule email reminders to arrive in your inbox a week before each project is due.
Use email messages to remind yourself about goals you set, tasks you need to complete,
or events you’d like to plan.
There is no limit to what you can achieve if you plan ahead and set clear, realistic, and time-limited goals.
Set a goal and you’re likely to be more focused and willing to face challenges with a positive attitude!
