Do you wish to become a better student this new year? If you answered "yes," then you should be aware that setting academic goals can give you the drive and focus you need to turn that wish a reality. For a few tips on how to set effective academic goals for the new year, read below.

How to Set Academic Goals for a Successful New Year

  1. Set clear and specific goals. Being too broad with your goals is a fast track to failure. This is because an unclear goal can leave lingering questions, which may lead to confusion. When setting a goal, be specific, be precise about the steps you should take to achieve it, and define a deadline for it.
  2. The next step is ensuring that your goals are attainable by the deadline. While you should create goals that will push you and make you work hard, goals which aren't within your reach can actually intimidate and discourage you.
  3. When setting your goals, you should also think about ways to track your progress. Doing so can be incredibly valuable since it will help you realize how much you've achieved, and will give you a better idea of how much harder you need to work.
  4. A crucial part of the process is modifying the strategy as needed. When you first plan and set your goals, you have no idea of how fast you'll progress. Once you get a better sense of this, adjust your goals and modify the strategy to help you succeed.
  5. A final tip that can really keep you accountable is being reminded of your goals. Have a friend ask you about them, or keep notes around your home to remember them. This way, you won't have the "I forgot" excuse, and you'll be obliged to work towards them.
