“A goal without a plan is just a wish.”

“A goal without a plan is just a wish.” – Antoine de Saint-Exupéry Help your child develop goals that include the various action steps necessary to achieve them. For example, raising a grade in a particular class is a wonderful goal. Developing and holding oneself to small, interim steps along the way is actionable (I will hand in all of my homework; I will develop study plans a few days in advance of exams; I will see my teacher for extra help once each week) and will help keep the goal accessible. Achieving a goal requires taking action.
