Beyond Aspiration: Meeting Goals and Challenges

Enrollment is Closed

About This Course

While virtually everyone set goals at the start of a year, only some achieve them successfully. What separates those who achieve goals from those who fail? Is there any technique you can follow that would keep you on track and make achieving goals easier? Should we set smaller goals to increase the likelihood of achieving them?

This course will teach you some simple but effective techniques on how to achieve your goals. In this two-week long course, you will learn how to create a vision, set milestones, make public commitments, and keep yourself accountable to others. By setting clearly defined goals, you can measure your progress and keep track of your achievements.

This course uses a combination of video lecture, text summary, and quiz to help learners understand each concept before proceeding to the next. Whereas appropriate, the course provides template documents so that the learners can put their learnings into practice.
