My Academic Smart Goal

Specific


I want to receive at least a 92% in advanced functions by the end of grade 12.


Measurable


I will keep track of all my test marks within the semester. After every test/assignment I will calculate my mark using my calculator. This will keep me aware of where I am, roughly, in the course. This way I will be able to put in more effort into the next assignment/test to boost my mark up. I will keep a reminder of what mark I am at on a piece of paper on my desk to compare what mark I want to be at, 92%.


Attainable


In order to get to my goal I will need to carry out specific steps. These steps include making a schedule of upcoming assignments on a calendar, which is on my desk and updated regularly. I will go to sleep by 9:30 pm every school day as this is proved to benefit the memory when it comes to what you have learned in class. This will help me when I am starting to review for the test. I will already know most of the information because I would have remembered it better than if I had slept late. Everyday, I will do my homework, which is assigned to me by my teacher. This will give me practice for what I learn in class and will make the skill that I have learned in class stronger. As well, I will wake up earlier on weekends to get a head start on the work I have to do. After this, I can spend my free-time how I like. I will also limit my distractions while I am doing my work. I will do this giving my phone to my parents and tell them not to give it to me until I am finished my work. This will remove my temptations to check social media after every 15 minutes. I will be more efficient and get more work done. This will help the most when I am trying to study for a test. I will work in a quiet environment where I will not get distracted by any noise around me, such as my room, instead of downstairs where it is noisy.


Realistic:


My SMART goal of getting 92% in advanced functions by the end of grade 12 is realistic because it is possible to get a 92% if I try hard. Even more so because I have gotten higher marks in similar courses in the past. With hard work this goal can be achieved. Doing my homework, making a schedule, sleeping early, and limiting distractions will help me achieve this high mark. Many people have achieved this goal and even surpassed it. This proves that this goal is realistic. This goal is important because it will make it easier for me to get accepted into university for the program that I desire.


Timely:


The time frame to achieve this goal is one semester. Within this semester I will be doing this course and applying everything I have thought of to boost my mark. Smaller goals that I will be inputting into the semester include aiming to get 95% to 100% on every assignment and test that I receive. This way if I get a lower mark on a test my mark will not drop as much because I have gotten a 95% to 100% on my other tests.

My Volunteer Smart Goal

Specific:


I want to earn 200 volunteer hours by the time I graduate high school.


Measurable:


I will keep track of how many hours I have gotten by writing down how many hours I have earned from each place. Alongside this I will have a track record of how many hours I have completed to date in student services. I will hand my volunteer hour sheet, which is signed by who I volunteer for, and it will be inputted into the school system. On myblueprint.com this number is available for me to see. This way is a full proof way for me to keep track of how many hours I have completed, even if I lose the written sheet that I wrote the amount of hours I have completed.


Attainable:

To accomplish this goal I will need to volunteer at places in the community, which are accepted by the school as volunteer locations. I will volunteer at a election campaign, which usually takes place in September. I have already volunteered at a election campaign twice. I will need to mark the date the that the election campaign starts on my calendar so I do not forget when it does come around. Other places I can volunteer at in the community include religious places and food banks. Although, in order to volunteer at a food bank I will need to submit my resume and criminal record. So, I am going to have to get a copy of my criminal record from the police station and create and print out a resume that I have created. I am also able to get hours from school when there are activities available and offer volunteer hours in return. To do these I am going to have to listen to the announcements very carefully for any new volunteer activities that may be available. This will get me extra hours and I will not have to go to any specific location because I can get them in school.


Realistic:


Yes, I can achieve this goal. I have volunteered in the past and the result of me volunteering is 150 volunteer hours to date. I have gotten those hours in the time span of 1 year and thus it is very possible and easy for me to get 50 hours in 2 years. I am very determined to do what I am aiming toward. So, this goal is very easy for me.


Timely:


The time frame for this goal is 2 years, by the time I graduate. Smaller goals that I will set to help me accomplish my goal include reaching 175 volunteer hours by September of 2016. This will help me keep constant with my hours and I will not get lazy and do all of it at the end of my grade 12 year. I will not have to rush this way.

Challenges and Solutions

Firstly, it is hard for architects to find motivation to do the high amount of work they do everyday. When an architect is new to the job they have have ideas and seem like to never run out of them. As architects gain more and more experience they seem to become bored of their jobs and designing every single day. They run out of ideas and do not have much motivation to start to think of new ideas. To overcome this solution architects have to find a way for staying motivated. They can achieve this with some of the following methods or a combination of all of them. To stay motivated architects can plan what they want to accomplish on a day to day basis. Architects can keep a new sticky note on their desk every day that has written on it what they want to complete by the end of the day. This will get them something to work towards and will help them complete tasks more efficiently. Staying positive will also help architects stay motivated. Knowing, in your mind, that you can do this will keep architects working. Architects should remember everyday what their end goal is for working in this job. This will refresh them and keep them going because they will want to achieve their end motive. Rest will help when trying to brainstorm for new ideas. Lastly, exercise and healthy eating will help brain function for the architect. These tips will help architects stay on task and always have a lot of enthusiasm in them. This extra enthusiasm will help with their creativity and help them design buildings with efficiency.

Secondly, architects have to deal with lost of stress when they are working. The constant worry of deadlines and client payments gets them very stressed. Architectural firms are very strict on deadlines. In order for an architect to make a well-designed plan they must work on it for a long time. This is because architects have to make precise calculations that will not cause them problems when the building construction has started. Other causes of stress are payments. Clients sometimes do not pay the day of request. So, architects have to make sure they are going to pay and do not waste time making a design that is not going to make them any money. To relieve stress architects can sleep more. Sleep is a good remedy to almost everything and is very good for you. Architects should sleep for at least 7 to 8 hours a day. Having more fun is a great way to relieve stress for architects. When architects are in the workplace they have no space to move around and have fun. Playing sports on a regular basis or doing something that you enjoy will help relieve stress and make you happier. Lastly, exercise will help architects be less stressed. Exercise has been proven to relieve stress immediately. This will not only help with stress levels but will help architects maintain a healthy body, which will help them as they age.

Lastly, architects need brainstorm the best way to present their ideas to clients. Many clients come to architectural firms to get quotes on the price and design the architects are offering. Those clients may have multi-million dollar business and it is up to architects to present their ideas in a professional and attractive manner. They need to show their full potential to their clients to get their business. To overcome this obstacle architects will need to put lots of effort and endless hours into their presentation to make it the best the possibly can. They will also need to be very polite to their client. This is important because if the architects are not polite their client will not be happy and will most likely not take their business. This will be very bad for the company because they will be losing money. Architects have to practice many times over so they can perfect their presentation. This will make it seem like the architect knows what he/she is talking about. Dressing up professionally will also help architect seem like they know what they are talking about. Negotiation is also key to get someone's business. An architect should know what price is too high and what price they can both settle at. These tips are key to getting business in an architectural firm.
