This assignment is required at the end of the semester, but it is one that you should have been working on throughout the course. Select ONE option of accomplishing something for yourself in the first few weeks, and follow general directions to complete, selecting your own personal goals and challenges to work on and monitor your progress. Each assignment asks you to develop goals, engage in activities to address them and track them in some way. Take risks, try new things, and challenge yourself to be a better version of you!
What you select to do and how you monitor and appraise your own progress is up to you. Feel free to submit word documents, power point slides, videos or other media to submit the required elements of the assignment as described below.
OPTIONS (select one)
Read the text “Best self: Be you only better” by Mike Bayer (2019) and monitor your progress on selected semester-long goals. Goal examples can include things such as practicing kindness acts each day, moving from pessimistic to optimistic orientation perspectives, losing weight, living sober, stopping smoking, etc. The final assignment should include your method of keeping track of your goals and a 500 word (2 double spaced pages, 1 inch margin, 12 font) reflection of your journey, including your detailed thoughts about the book.
Goal attainment scaling is a technique used in a variety of fields for tracking personal goals. Select 2-4 personal goals to work on throughout the semester and complete the Goal Attainment Scale sheet posted on Canvas. This assignment should reflect regular, at least weekly, tracking of your self-selected activities to reach your goals. For example, if you selected “improving physical fitness” you may have selected going to the gym 3 times per week for 1 hour, cycling 5 times per week for 10 miles, or exercising to target heart rate 4 times per week. Progress metrics might be weight, time to target heart rate and return to baseline, or fitness other measures. Final assignments should include your goal sheet and weekly tracking, photos of you participating in your selected activity, as well as a 1000 word ( 4 double spaced pages, 1 inch margin, 12 font) reflection paper that describes your perspectives on your progress and challenges.
Select one new stress management activity that you can do at least 2-3 times weekly over the entire semester. This choice would be best for someone who wished to commit to an activity such as yoga, spinning/cycling, running, or playing basketball OR engage in a new diet, sober-living, or tech-free days plan routinely each week. It’s similar to #2 but how you measure progress is more flexible. Final assignments should include calendar documentation of regular participation, photos/videos of you participating in your activity, and a 1000 word ( 4 double spaced pages, 1 inch margin, 12 font) reflection paper that describes your perspectives on your progress and challenges.
