8 Designing a Compelling Life Plan 9 How to Set a Goal Using DAPPS To be truly motivating, a goal needs 5 qualities DAPPS is an acronym: Dated

Achievable Personal Positive Specific 10 Dated

Motivating goals have specific deadlines Short term goals are a few months or less Long term goals are usually more than a year As your deadline approaches, your motivation typically increases If you dont meet your deadline, you have opportunity to review and create a new plan Without a deadline, you could stretch your pursuit of a goal and may not reach it 11

Achievable Motivating goals are challenging but realistic Example: Getting ready for a marathon: Practice one week before by running around the block Practice one year before with someone who has done it Set your limit not too high and not too low Ask yourself: Is achieving this goal at least 50% believable to me? Or Can this be done?

12 Personal Motivating goals are your goals, not someone elses Ask yourself if this goal contribute to your personal desire/dream 13

Positive Motivating goals focus your energy on what you do want rather than on what you dont want Translate negative goals into positive goals Negative: Im not going to fail this class Positive: Im going to earn at least a B in this class Negative: I will stop being late to classes Positive: I will arrive early to every class Negative: I will stop eating junk food Positive: I will start eating healthy food 14

Specific Motivating goals state outcomes in specific, measurable terms Example Good: My goal is to do better this semester Better: I goal is to achieve a 3.5 GPA by Dec. 12, 20XX Good: My goal is to play harder on the basketball court Better: My goal is to achieve at least 80% field goal by Oct. 15, 20XX
