- Pick a goal, something you want that matters to you. Write it down, and better yet, tell someone you’re close to about it to help with accountability.
- Write down a plan for your goal. List out the steps, assign a deadline to the first step. Put that step on your To-Do List.
- Take one step this week to “find your tribe.” If you’re already new to a tribe this semester, do one thing to strengthen your ties with that new tribe.
- Ask for some help related to your goal.
- Do research related to your goal. What do you need to learn more about in order to work more efficiently, save money, and/or become more effective at achieving your goal. There’s always something we can learn that can help!
- Reach out to one of your instructors for something you need. It could be related to your academic goals, or maybe it’s something about a personal goal that can be helped by networking.
If you are a recent college grad or faculty member that’s in recovery for mental health issues, I’d love to interview you about your goal achievement quest, the struggles/adversity you faced, as well the wellness strategies you learned! I’m particularly interested in interviewing student entrepreneurs and those involved in mental health advocacy. Please reach out.
