How to Set the Right Goals for 2017

Start your year off right by setting up your 2017 goals!  Set aside a day and really think about what you want to accomplish this year, whether it be personally, professionally, academically.

C_Alyssa_DuncanAny set goal will guide you in the right direction of accomplishing them. It may take some time, but if you are dedicated and passionate about something, anything is possible.

Whenever I create goals for myself, I always write them down on a piece of paper, then write why it is important to me. I will hang that goal up on a wall in my room, to always remind myself of what I want to accomplish and how I will accomplish that goal.

For example, say you wanted to get on the Dean’s list for school – how will you do that? Will you set specific study days, or set up tutoring session in more difficult classes? Whatever can help you accomplish that goal, will be beneficial to you if that goal is important to you.

There are so many goals you can set for yourself, even for DECA! With the connections you make throughout your experience with DECA, someone is always there to help you or to guide you on the right path.

If you were determined to get on stage at #CDECAICDC, reach out to other members to do practice role plays, or go on and check out sample testing.

Or if you are thinking about running for executive office, reach out to any of your executive officers, or past officers and anyone would love to tell you about this experience!

When you have a goal that you can set your mind to, you can truly accomplish anything!
