Cool I need a goal! - June 8th 2013, 11:36 PM

SO. My National Honor Society adviser needs us to come up with a goal we can accomplish next year to put on the Dream Board.

Honestly, I don't know.

I don't have a dream school so that's not a goal of mine. The only thing I can think of is to not have an emotional breakdown, which I doubt she'd accept. Anyone have any ideas of some goals I can try and accomplish next year?

I know, it's pretty bad when I can't think of my own but seriously, my life is revolved around school and I can't use "Maintain Straight As" either because she said not to. Bah. But, if I hear some of your suggestions maybe it'll spark some of my own!

Hai Dez,

Since you said most of your life revolves around school, can you try a goal that's more focused outside of school? I don't know if that would be possible because they might be looking for a school goal...but it's worth thinking about right?

Maybe something like...
  • Create a better relationship with [insert a person's name here]
  • Talk to new people
  • Volunteer doing something you've never done before

And here's a few school related ones that I thought of...
  • Go to more school events and socialize
  • Read a certain number of books each month, or a book a week, or anything like that
  • Branch out and create friendships with more people in your classes

Is there anything I can do that involves organization? I'm not sure if putting "become more organized" is an adequate goal or not for her but all my folders are always torn up and a mess by the end of the year and my papers are all messed up half the time.

But if not I'll definitely consider that x amount of books per month one.

I don't see why organization wouldn't be a good one. I actually think a lot of High School students need to make goals on being more organized...including myself.

You could make it a bit more detailed and include how you're going to be more organized and give examples if that's what she's looking for.

Hey Dez,
I sort of had to do the same thing for NHS. Some goals that I could think of relating to school are:

-Trying to be stronger(relating to emotional breakdowns)
-Try to be more engaged around school(like join clubs?) just like Lauren said
-Trying to get work done ahead of time(if you are a procrastinator like I am :P)
-Emotionally, try not to get too much stressed
Basically, for making goals, just think of some of your weaknesses and think of reasonable ways to improve. I hope this helps.

Best of luck,
Rishy
