S-M-A-R-T Goals

Academic S-M-A-R-T Goal

S - By the end of this grade 10 semester, I would like to improve my midterm marks by 5% each.

M - I can measure or "track" the progress of my goal by comparing my final mark to my midterm mark for each 4 courses. Additionally, I can also analyze my tests and summative marks throughout the rest of the courses. So therefore, if I am continuously earning good marks, I should be on an uphill pathway.

A - I know exactly what actions to perform. I can look at my midterm report card and read the teachers' comments. They always identify things top improve on in the course, so therefore I will work on those specific things to improve my course mark. These are affective actions because whatever flaws I made from the beginning on the course to the midterm, the teachers have identifies them in the midterm comments. So, if I just simply work on these outstanding errors, I can improve on each of my course marks my at least 5%. My strengths that will help me achieve this goal is that I complete my work slowly at a steady pace, but I put extra effort into the quality of the work. My weaknesses are that I don't not use class time productively, since I prefer working in a more calm atmosphere at home in my study room. I will overcome these weaknesses by blocking out everyone and focusing on my own work, along with getting started on my work earlier.

R - I definitely can achieve this goal because it isn't that difficult to improve 5% in a course. This goal is important to me because improving 5% is a small start, but will motivate me to strive for an even bigger improvement.

T - The time frame to achieve this goal is the duration of the rest of this semester. Some smaller goals that I can achieve to then help my overall goal is to use class time more effectively, and also to be more efficient when completing tasks.

Voluntary S-M-A-R-T Goal

S- My voluntary smart goal is to earn at least 175 voluntary hours by the time I graduate.

M- In order to measure my hours, I will create a chart with every hour and the day I did it. Once the chart total adds up to 175, I will know I have reached my goal, but I will still keep working to achieve a better representation.

A-In order to achieve this goal, I will have to volunteer at least 5 hours a month at my elementary school, the hospital, elections, or at the gurdwara.

R- Achieving this goal is very important because it will make getting my future job a whole easier because I will stand out from the rest of the people applying.

T- Every 2 months I will tally up my total hours and once it hits 175, before or after I graduate, I will know I achieved my goal.

Challenges & Solutions

Challenge #1 - “Optometrists can expect to have to complete continuing education throughout their career to maintain their licensure and stay abreast of changes in the field”, (Angadala, Quora). I can relate to this quote since my dad is an optometrist. As a son of an optometrist, I can see that my dad still has to go to seminars to continue his education and keep up with his license, since the field comes out with new technology. This is definitely a challenge because becoming a certified optometrist takes a huge amount of time, and after the path is finally completed most optometrists are fed up with lectures. Unfortunately, soon right after they have to attend seminars to educate themselves about updated info. In all honesty, there is no actual solution to this challenge, but one thing an optometrist can do is to think of the bright side of continuing their education in the field. They can think about the pros about attending seminar lectures. Some of these pros include meeting old friends from optometry school at seminars, getting informed about new technology in the field, and also learning easier ways to examine and care for eyes. Since there are no reunions in most optometry schools, seminars are a great way for optometrists to reunite with their old friends from school.

Challenge #2 - Another challenge that optometrists have to face is the huge oversupply of OD’s (doctor of optometry). This is definitely one of the biggest disadvantages accompanied with the job of an optometrist because if there is very little demand of eye care (patients), and a massive supply of optometrists, the business in this field is going to be very slow. There are many ways to tackle this problem to come up with a solution and resolve the problem. The main solution is to look for a job position as an optometrist somewhere in Manitoba or British Columbia, since the supply of optometrists are not significantly high there, and there would be more demand, therefore providing more business. This is a realistic solution because Manitoba or British Columbia would be great provinces in Canada to move to, as the scenery and lifestyle is quite enjoyable. I know this because I have family in Manitoba and British Columbia. Since Ontario, Quebec, and other Canadian provinces are very urban areas, Manitoba and BC would be an excellent consideration to resolve this problem regarding oversupplies of optometrists in Ontario.
