Week 7 Discussion
Joe Gibbs learned at an early age that being a professional football player was an unrealistic goal based on his strengths and abilities. So, he decided to pursue his dream job as an NFL head coach. It took decades to achieve that dream, but setting effective goals helped him get there!
To find success like Coach, we need to set SMART goals. Have you ever set a goal that was unrealistic? What happened? What did you learn? Using the SMART goal framework, identify a past goal that you made for yourself and explain why it might have been unrealistic.
topic 2 :
This week you learned about the importance of adopting a growth mindset vs. a fixed mindset. Describe a time in your life when you faced an important opportunity or challenge with a fixed mindset? What held you back? Were you concerned about your ability to succeed? Were you worried about other people’s perception of you? (Briefly describe the situation.)
If you could go back in time and redo this situation with a growth mindset, how would that change your approach and the outcome?
