Rosh Hashana #Goals

3 months ago Madison Gold 0

With Rosh Hashanah coming up this week, it is common for one to set new year resolutions or goals. However, it is very common to set goals that are unreachable or too extreme. Here are five tips on how to set reachable S.M.A.R.T. goals:

 

  1.     Specific: Set goals that are very clear and precise.

Don’t say:   I will go to CTeen.

Say:              I will go to monthly CTeen events and become a more dedicated participant.

  1.     Measurable: The goals you set should be able to be measured in some way so you can track your progress.

Don’t day:   I will go to more CTeen events and meet new people.

Say:              I will go to 9 CTeen events and meet 5 new people.

  1.     Achievable: Your goals need to be something that you can actually achieve.

Don’t say:   I will go to every regional, national, and international.

Say:              I will go to at least one regional or national event and to the International Shabbaton.

  1.     Realistic: Although your goals can be a hope or a dream, make sure they are things that would really be likely to happen or something that you can actually achieve.

Don’t say:   I will be an active CTeen participant in order for me to be a CTeen leader next year.

Say:              I will be an active CTeen participant in hopes of being a CTeen leader by the time I graduate.

  1.     Time Frame: Give yourself a time frame in which you want to complete your goal.

Don’t say:   I will go to three CTeen events as soon as possible.

Say:              I will go to three CTeen events by January.

 

As you start to prepare for Rosh Hashanah, take a few minutes to set S.M.A.R.T. goals for yourself in order to help you have a great upcoming year! Feel free to share these goals on social media by tagging CTeen or using the hashtag #CTeenSmartGoals
