Healthy Goals
By Jennifer Kenny

1     Have you ever told your parents what you want to be when you grow up? Have you ever told a teacher what you want to learn during a new school year? Have you ever made a New Year's resolution? If you were able to answer yes to any of these questions, you have set goals for yourself. What exactly is a goal? A goal is something you hope to accomplish and that you work to achieve.
2     Goals help you know the way you'd like your life to go. Ask some adults in your life what their goals were in the past. Did they achieve them? Do they have any goals now? Perhaps they'll tell you how they worked hard to get into college. Perhaps they'll tell you how they saved to buy a house. Maybe they're training for a promotion now. Maybe they're saving for retirement. By understanding their goals, people understand what they have to do to reach them.
3     There are two kinds of goals. Short-term goals are those that can be reached in days or weeks. Perhaps you are saving your babysitting money to buy a video game or a new pair of jeans. Maybe you are studying for a mid-term exam. These would be short-term goals.
