Culinary Arts Newsletter

If you know what you are aiming at, you can focus on hitting the target. Setting a goal works the same way. The most helpful goals are SMART (Specific, Measureable, Action-Packed, Realistic & Time-Bound). This goal-setting tool will help you focus on a goal and help you reach it. Take one of your education or career goals and make it a SMART goal:
What do you want to do?
Not Specific: I want to get an education.
Specific: I want to earn an Associate Degree in Culinary Arts.
How will you measure your goal progress?
Not Measurable: I will take some classes.
Measureable: I will enroll and complete 12 credits each semester.
How will you make this happen?
Not Action-Packed: I will attend class.
Action-Packed: I will schedule my time so I can attend 12 hours of class each week and allow myself at least 24 more hours to study (for every 1 credit hour, approximately 2-3 hours outside of class studying).
Is your goal doable?
Unrealistic: I will reach this goal in a year or so.
Realistic: I will complete 24 credits each school year.
Can you set a time frame?
No time: I will earn an Associate Degree.
Time: I will earn an Associate Degree in Culinary Arts in 6 semesters.
