My goals for this semester included: I will achieve 7 masteries in two weeks, I will complete 15 attempts each week, I will perform at least 2 evaluations a month, and by the end of the semester I will be able to perform a majority of every upper special test. I chose these goals to focus on because I know last semester I crammed to get all of my attempts and masteries almost at the end of last semester. I realized half way through the semester that I was falling behind on getting my attempts and masteries, so these goals I am setting I believe will help me complete my clinical packet more efficient this semester. I also choose my last goal very particularly because I really want to be able to learn all my upper special tests really well this semester. Last semester when I was studying for my exit, I felt very overwhelmed because when I looked back at the lower special tests I seemed to not remember them well. So I want to be able to perform all the upper special test by the end of the semester, so I wont have the problem again. This semester I am going to try and get ahead of the things and keep myself on top of everything. I think I did a good job with this last semester, but I started decreasing by the end. I have these goals taped onto my wall where my desk is, so every day when I sit at my desk to do homework I can remind myself what I want to achieve that way I can keep track of my goals.
So far this semester I have completed 12 attempts already, falling short just 3 of my goal. I do not have a mastery yet, but I have two attempts for two different objectives. So next time I am in the clinic, I will be able to attempt for two masteries. Which will make me almost half way with meeting my 7 masteries in two weeks. However, I do think getting 7 masteries in two weeks might be hard for me achieve at first, I want to push myself this semester because I know I am capable of these goals. I think if I can prove to myself that this task can be completed, I will believe in myself to more challenging things throughout this semester. This past week was I was unable to meet my goals, but I had created my goals after I made this attempts. So this coming up week, I am ready to encounter and face my goals every week. I believe now that I have gotten back into the groove with school, I am ready to begin challenging myself to meet these goals. I know what I have in store to complete this semester, and I am ready to prove to myself I can do anything that challenges me.
