Interpersonal Goals
My personal goal in four weeks I would like to work on my listening skills in my life as I have realized that I usually do not give people around me a chance to air out their views. Additionally, I always seem ready to interrupt someone when am talking and I need to learn how to show patience in allowing other people to express themselves.
I am not far from achieving this goal as I realized that I needed to work on the same a few months ago. Some of the measures I had put in place include remembering that listening is superior to speaking; otherwise we would have two tongues and one ear.
I believe that this goal is not set too high in that it can be easily achieved as we always have opportunities to interact and listen to people. This means that in every day I get the opportunity to perfecting my listening skills and also learn the appropriate body language to have while listening.
I think I will take two weeks to achieve this goal as it is something that I have already been working on. As mentioned above, this goal can be put into practice every day as we are presented with opportunities to interact with colleagues, friends and family members.
Even though this goal will not take much time to be achieved, I am working on setting smaller goals as I plan on achieving the bigger goal. These include watching educative videos for ten minutes every morning on YouTube on how to sharpen my interpersonal skills.
In successfully attaining my goal, I will be able to strengthen the relationships I have with those around me. In successfully achieving this goal, I will also gain more confidence in holding meaningful conversations with people of various age groups. This will also boost my leadership skills as I hope to become a student leader during my stay in college.
My academic goal in four weeks, I would like to work on my verbal communication pertaining to how I relate with my online tutors. As an online student, I have realized that I need to work on my attitude towards online classes if I want to become a successful student.
I believe I am quite far from attaining this goal as I recently realized that my previous grades are as a result of the bad attitude that I have towards online classes. I think this goal is not set too high because it is something that can be achieved through increased commitment to my studies.
I believe that I will take two weeks to achieve this goal. This will mainly be facilitated by smaller goals that I have put in place that will help in achieving the bigger goal. Examples include interacting with student mentors who have successfully completed similar online classes. This will enable me to gather insight and motivation on how to successfully complete such classes.
By attaining this goal, I will also benefit from improved class performance as anyone can achieve anything they desire if they have the right attitude. I will also acquire appropriate study mechanisms from interactions with study mentors.
In four weeks my professional goal, I would like to work on my attitude towards my supervisors at work. I tend to not take them seriously especially those who are within my age bracket.

I am not far from achieving this goal because it is something that I have noticed that does not please my superiors at work. I think this goal is not set too high as people are required to respect those in leadership positions regardless of their age. I believe I will take two weeks to attain this goal as I have started addressing my supervisors in a professional way while at the office. On successful completion of this goal, I will be able to improve my work relations with other colleagues and gain the trust of my supervisors.
