Lesson 6.docx - A Goal is a powerful motivation tool Goals...

This preview shows page 1 - 2 out of 2 pages.

A Goal is a powerful motivation tool. Goals are something that people try to achieve. Edwin Locke studied and found that people are “motivated by goals and feedback” (Fusion, 2019). Goals need to be challenging. Goals that have no challenge have no motivation. (Fusion, 2019) Goals need to be measurable. Having measurable goals gives a sense of progress towards those goals and increases the changes of achieving the goals. Goals need to be specific. (Kalat, 2017) Specific goals are easier to understand and achieve. Having complex goals lowers the chance of the goal getting achieved. Goals that have deadlines boost motivation and make peoplework harder. (Kalat, 2017) I find that group projects that have a deadline motivate people more because of the pressure peers have on one another. For example, in my personal experience I work harder in group projects than in personal assignments. I usually procrastinate personal assignments and the pressure of my peers in a group assignment pushes me to work.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
