There are three kinds of goals: short-term,medium-range and long-term goals.

Short-range goals are those that usually deal with current activities,which we can apply on a daily basis.Such goals can be achieved in a week or less, or two weeks, or possible months.It should be remembered that just as a building is no stronger than its foundation ,our long-term goals cannot amount to very much without the achievement of solid short-term goals.Upon completing our short-term goals, we should date the occasion and then add new short-term goals that will build on those that have been completed.

The intermediate goals build on the foundation of the short-range goals. They might deal with just one term of school or the entire school year, or they could even extend for several years.

And as your list of completion dates grow, your motivation and desire will increase.
