How Writing Down Specific Goals Can Empower You

“The act of writing is more powerful than people think.”

Researchers have discovered that mental motivation plays a definitive role in academic achievement.

In academic strategy developed by University of Toronto Prof. Jordan Peterson, students reflect on important moments in their past, identify key personal motivations and create plans for the future, including specific goals and strategies to overcome obstacles. Here's a crippled PDF (below) to give you an idea of what's involved. Check out the table of contents. From there I think you can probably figure out for yourself what you need to do, what you should research (and practice) to accomplish the your goals. Read this website entry as well: A scalable goal-setting intervention closes both the gender and ethnic minority achievement gap.

MAPS OF MEANING:  THE ARCHITECTURE OF BELIEF

Here's a COMPLETE PDF of a similar paper Peterson co-authored, to enhance your studies.

COMMENTING CHARGES
Per comment rate: $2
Payable by either clicking the BitCoin "tip me" button or the PayPal "donate" button in the sidebar.

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
