My Volunteer S.M.A.R.T Goals


I want to be apart of an organization that deals with helping the hungry such as salvation army and Seva food bank organization. while being a part them I want people to realize what world hunger is and what they can do and obviously spread the word out "Stop World Huner"


I believe that helping the community in a good way is always a good deed and you will always be appreciated for that. I can track my goal by contacting organizations asking to a part of them or volunteering with them, setting up booths and food drives. this would also help me out in my academics because it would a social action which is doing and also, it is necessary to do for my English class project since my school is more about social action and about helping others which I really like.


The action I would need to take to complete this goal would firstly buy a lot of canned food and visit a few local food organizations and ask to be part of them. I would also need to pick 1 organization and be committed to it because, in the end, it doesn't matter which organization your in , you are just trying to help the poor by feeding them and trying to get the word out " Stop world Hunger". for this action, I believe that my strengths are that since I am a confident person I would be able to talk to people at booths or through phone and explain to them what world hunger is . My weakness is that since I am a really busy person , I may not be able to be committed to it 100%, not saying I won't try.

Realistic and Relevant

I believe that this is an important goal because there are many people in the world dying due to world hunger. World hunger refers to the many people in the world who have an insufficient quantity of food. World hunger is essentially the desire for food and when not received this can lead to malnutrition. Malnutrition is the result of an unbalanced diet that does not include sufficient nutrients which result in weight loss, dizziness, and fatigue, 795 million people out of 7.3 billion suffer from world hunger. I believe that this is a doable goal because the main concept of this goal is just to donate food which would save some lives and try to help by getting the word out "Sop world hunger".


Well, I want to achieve this goal as soon as possible because my project for school is due soon and plus this is an issue which should be dealt with as soon as possible . the approximate time I believe it would take me to be a part of an organization and start helping them would be around in the next 7 days. the smaller goals I will have to make to do this is that I would have to buy food and donate it to organizations that I visit to ask to be a part of them and another small goal might be I might have contacted them by calling or emailing them to ask.



From now and on I want to get my whole average of my finial report card 80% or over in order to get a honor role.


At the moment, I have 4 courses this semester which are Civics/careers, science, English, and Art. Referring to mid-terms in science I had a 72 , in English a 65 , in civics 68 and in art 72. As you can see my strengths are shown in science and art even though I don't really enjoy those courses , My weaknesses are shown in English which is a course I really like because since I'm becoming a lawyer , it is something that would help me. my other weakness is civics , civics mark is something I'm fine with because its just a one-time thing which really doesn't matter to me. I can track my goal by making my marks in class good/high level by studying for assessments , trying to do well on assignments which will slowly and hopefully help me result in an average of 80% or higher and then I will be qualified for honour roles.


I will finish my homework early and on time which my full effort into it , I will try to put all my effort and hard work into my assignments and finish them before due dates. I will try to remain more focused in class and listen to the teachers instructions. finally, I would try to push to study and not lack off and try to achieve a good mark.

Realistic or Relevant:

I believe that this is a very important goal because a goal in academics and you try to achieve will get you somewhere in life. academics is something that would create value for you if you're doing great. This is a realistic and doable goal because all I have to do is try my best in everything I do whether its a test,quiz,assignment or a projcet. if I do accomplish doing these things successfully , my average will automatically be 80% or higher and which would lead me into getting an honour role.


Well, i want to achieve this goal in 2 months which nearly the end the semester 2 meaning end of grade 10. the smaller goals I would have to set are that when I'm doing any classwork or homework , I should put my phone away and make that my first priority and complete it . my second small goal I think I might need is to listen to the teacher when he or she is teaching and not talk to friends.

Challenges & Solutions

Since having a highly interest in law, for my future job goal, I have chosen the job of an Criminal lawyer. My future career job is to become a Criminal lawyer. The main role of a Criminal lawyer is to represent their defendant in the criminal court system. Criminal lawyers have the same basic duties as other lawyers. Criminal lawyer is also known as criminal defense lawyers or a public defender. Unlike other lawyers they focus and deal with criminal cases such as domestic violence, robbery, assault, murder and any type of fraud. The job of an criminal lawyer comes with several advantages and disadvantages. In the job of a lawyer, lawyers have advantages of the job and disadvantages. Some o advantages of becoming a lawyer are, you get to help out society, help them fix their problems, and solve their cases. You get paid good money hourly, monthly, yearly. Many business trips to different places will be offered, people will look up to you and respect you. You get to work with intelligent people, that enjoy doing the same thing you do. The disadvantages are that Law school will be a little expensive, you would be working long hard hours. Being able to see your family will be hard, it's hard to have a social life. you will endure tedious tasks, high stress, and client pressure. Also changing legal paradigms, which is, a set of assumptions, concepts, values, and practices that constitutes a way of viewing reality for the community.

To begin with, an Criminal lawyer has to do a lot of hard work in their day to day job to build up experience as an articling student in order to work at a law firm. Even after gaining experience in any law firm, the employee has to pass the bar exam, in order to get a job. One challenge I believe every lawyers faces not only a criminal lawyer does is New Lawyer Development. New Lawyer Development is a challenge which is faced by lawyers in any category. New Lawyer Development is basically when newly qualified lawyers are entering the law field, and have to differentiate themselves from other layers in the market showing off their capabilities. This is a challenge because it becomes very hard when you’re at that very position, in order to move forward, you have to develop traits that set you apart from others in the market, meaning you will have to showcase your self. The process of this can be very hard when entering this profession. In order to overcome this challenge, it mainly depends upon how much commitment and love you are putting towards this profession. In fact, the increase of technology is rapidly increasing which is something that can be vey successful in helping showcasing yourself.

Secondly, another challenge an criminal lawyer has to face is the difficulty of Meeting a client's expectations or needs in terms of cost, timing and deadlines. This is a challenge because meeting a client’s expectations can be very hard and difficult. why because in the terms of cost, there is so much competition between lawyers that it is very stressful when your quoting your client because on the other hand you don’t want to lose him or her. Due to this Lawyers lifestyle is very stressing at times. When taking timing and deadlines in consideration, this tends to be a challenge for every lawyer because they work for usually 9-12 hours a day and approximately 50 or more hours a week. Weekend and overtime hours are fairly common, in addition to that, it also depends upon the lawyers work ethic. Well if I was in this position, I would overcome this challenge by locating my law firm in a area where there isn’t much competition so you can be open and free when quoting your client a price. What I would do to eliminate the challenge of timings and deadlines is that, I would set dates far in advance and inform clients the time frame which this case can come in my hands to be worked on. In addition, when it comes to work ethic, this something which is also dependable on this job, so if your work ethic isn’t strong then you should set dates far in advance.

To sum it up, I thought these were two challenges which lawyers face and struggle with in their lifestyle.
