Students who set goals and stick to them are more likely to stay motivated and achieve success in their studies. So, if you haven't already done so, set some study goals.
Start by deciding what you want to achieve (your goals) then write them down. This makes them more real and helps you to commit to them. Display your goals somewhere prominent to keep reminding you of them. It also serves to reinforce your goals.
Don't forget to review your goals at regular intervals to makes sure they still work for you.
When you set your goals, it's important to make sure they're SMART goals. SMART is an acronym to help you formulate your goals. It stands for:
Measurable (or Meaningful)
Achievable (or Acceptable or Action-oriented)
Relevant (or Realistic)
Time-framed (or Time-Bound)
