I have used goal setting worksheets for a number of years to accomplish goals. Today I want to review with you how I have used goal setting worksheets successfully in my life. Yes this is very basic, picking a goal to start, but you have to start somewhere. I have used this first step in a number of areas from fitness goals to financial goals. On your goal setting worksheet at the top of the page you should write your ultimate goal. The goal is your starting point because it is the result you are looking to accomplish. Picking the end goal is like when you go on a vacation road trip to sunny Orlando, Florida. When you pull out of your driveway and you know your goal is to end up in Orlando, Florida. In your car you have maps and a GPS to help you arrive at your goal.
I am not naive. I know that making mistakes is a normal part of learning, and I know that sometimes there is benefit in teaching from mistakes. But a mistake made once is not the issue here. Skill and drill worksheets provide the unpleasant opportunity for repetition of a mistake. In a classroom setting, a student may have the sheet "completed" before the teacher can make it back around the room. The mistake gets practiced several times and probably will not be identified until the next day. Doing a worksheet at home may or may not be successful. The parent must supervise every moment the child is working on the worksheet if mistakes are to get caught before practiced. No looking at the TV, no stepping into the kitchen to stir the soup, nothing! We have all heard the saying "Practice makes perfect." Unfortunately, it is not true. Practice makes permanent. Only perfect practice makes perfect. We do not want permanent mistakes! And as I have said before, there are many interesting, even exciting ways to teach and learn. Why use skill and drill worksheets when it is known how harmful they can be?
