800 U. S. DOLLARS

S. M. A. R. T. GOAL

S→ I will save 57 dollars per week for 14 weeks (totaling to 800 dollars) in order to buy a laptop for college. I will work at my job at the Copper Door every week(2-3 shifts per week), saving each paycheck into my bank account (TD Bank).


M→ I will know that I have succeeded when I have accumulated 800 dollars more than I had before I began. I will not need to pick up additional shifts than the ones I am scheduled anyway. It is required that I work every week to complete this goal.


A→ I have all the resources I need to complete this goal, I have a job and a bank account


R→ Yes, this is reasonable because I make enough per week in order to save 57 dollars each week.


T→ I will have enough time to reach this goal because I work every week and make enough money every shift


D. E. C. I. D. E. MODEL

D→ I will save 57 dollars per week for 14 weeks (totaling to 800 dollars) in order to buy a laptop for college.


E→ It should be a reliable computer, up to date, with a large amount of memory and RAM.


C→ Lenovo IdeaPad Y510p 59388313 15.6-Inch Laptop (Dusk Black); ASUS G750JW-DB71 17.3-Inch Laptop (Black); Macbook Pro


I→ The Macbook Pro is quite expensive and is mostly aesthetically pleasing rather than being functional when it comes to the price. The idea pad is not the brand that I would want but it is a good size to carry around. The ASUS laptop is large, so it is heavier, but it is also better for memory and RAM


D→ I would most likely spend my money on the ASUS laptop


E→ For the price, compared to the others that are similarly priced, I am getting a good laptop for the money that I am spending, as far as memory and RAM go.
