Goal setting includes the following steps:

  • Write goals down
  • Anticipate and specify problems
  • Identify the resources needed
  • Create a plan
  • Follow the plan with determination

Introduce the list with a strong, clear sentence or phrase so the reader immediately understands what the list is about.
