Share one career goal, one academic goal, and one personal goal. Based on information from Personal Goal Setting:
Planning to Live Your Life Your Way, describe your accountability plan for meeting each of these three goals. Then,
answer the following questions:
Why is it important to write down goals and formulate a plan for meeting those goals?
What role does accountability play in the pursuit of goals?
Your initial response should be 150-200 words in length and is due by Thursday, Day 3. Respond to at least two of
your classmates’ posts by Monday, Day 7. (You must create one initial post and at least two responses, for a
minimum of three posts for this discussion.)
My personal goal is to be a great wife, mother, and friend to my family.
Academically I am pushing to complete my Bachelors degree within two years.
A future career goal is to use my Bachelors degree to get a satisfying job within the education field.
My accountability plan for meeting each of these goals is to, as they say, “keep my eye on the prize.” When you
have a plan and you make out your priorities to ensure you reach your goals it seems to work best. Time
management and a sense of purpose has always helped me in my mission to complete goals.
It is important to write down your goals to give them substance and you can see where you are starting, how you
plan to get there, and the final outcome. It gives your goals some substance and lets you “see” what you are
working for. It seems to give me incentive to work harder.
Accountability plays a major role in goals. If you do not have a reason to work for something it seems to be pushed
to the back burner. Accountability lets you keep track of where you start and shows your progress. Keeping record
of such information will let you see if you are slacking in any areas and if you need to work harder to meet certain
marks (Mohatta, C. 2011).
