Breaking Down Goals

As a new year begins, many teachers and students are setting new goals and/or refining old ones. One challenge that often gets in the way of progress is the difficulty in starting something new -especially if the new action is unfamiliar.

One strategy I use, and advise others to use is, to break goals down into smaller, more manageable chunks. This strategy provides a number of potential benefits:

  1. Better focus
  2. Allows for smaller scale practice and feedback
  3. Small gains add up to big rewards
  4. Small gains fuel motivation and momentum

If you are looking for another article that speaks about breaking down goals, here is very good one from Fast Company.
