Setting Realistic Learning Goals

As an adult, you need to set certain learning goals, just as you would establish any other work-related goals or personal goals.

What is it that you want to learn more about? How much time can you devote to this learning objective -- and when? How will you reach this goal (formal learning or private learning)? When are your best or worst times to study?

Learning goals need to be realistic. Don't bite off more than you can chew. Don't establish a learning goal that you may not be capable of attaining. And don't frustrate yourself by creating a goal that is not meaningful.
