Like Sam, I also have serious procrastination, and I don't remember what times I have been not achieved my goals.

I'm here to learn how others handle this situation, and I have already learned a lot from Sam.

Talking about the specific goal this year, or next year, I'd like to make a goal about IELTS, I want to get four 6 in the IELTS exam(Of course 7 is better!).

To achieve this object, I made an actionable plan, including:

  1. Participate in English training club, and continually practice;
  2. Using the Duolingo app to study sentences;
  3. Try to speak to others in English, and think in English every day.

I wish my goal could come true in 6 months to 1 year.

It's awesome that you have a clear and actionable goal this year.
I have some suggestions that you can try to achieve your goal.

  1. Give an accurate time for each task you do.
  2. Do one task in the first two weeks, if you think you still have more time, add another task.
    some mistakes I found:
    I don't remember what times I have been not achieved my goals.
    --I don't remember how many times I didn't achieve my goals.

Using the Duolingo app to study sentences;
-- Use the Duolingo App to study;
notes: keep the consistency of action words, and use the same tense.

Thanks for your reply.

You are right, the plan needs to add the time period.

First of all, the Eleduck English Club training is in progress.

Secondly, I participate in a Busuu class, I did a test called CERF, and I get a B1 level, I want to achieve B2 in one month.

Besides, I bought a few online speaking lessons to talk with Philippines teachers. And I will continually do this until the IELTS exam, in three months, hope I can get 5.5 or 5 at least.

Yes, I always set goals in the past years, long-term or short-term, like most people. But I merely achieved them. After reading the SMART goal setting, I think I should apply it to my next goal to learn it.

First of all, one of my goals this year is to learn English.

So, based on the first character in the SMART goal, Specific, I think I should change the goal to "I am going to be an English Speaker that could talk to other people fluently in English at the end of next year, by learning English".

Second, through the character 'Measurable' and 'Achievable', I would break down the goal into smaller goals, split into some phases like the following:

  1. Can listening to simple sentences clearly
  2. Can listening English clearly at a slowly speaking rate
  3. Being able to say some simple sentences according to my thoughts
  4. Can listening English clearly at a normal speaking rate
  5. Can speak directly in English that what I want

Relevant? I think it's 'Yes', after all, I make this goal on purpose to find a good job which is in an English environment.

Eventually, Time-bound, I think one and half a year to reach this goal is suitable, and make my goal achievable, maybe I can reach the third term at the end of this year, hopefully.

Thank you for sharing your learning. You did a good try using SMART. Here is one mistake.
it should be " can do" but not"can doing ".
please correct following sentences

  1. Can listening to simple sentences clearly
  2. Can listening English clearly at a slowly speaking rate
  3. Being able to say some simple sentences according to my thoughts
  4. Can listening English clearly at a normal speaking rate
  5. Can speak directly in English that what I want

Thanks very much, I didn't realize the mistake until you point it out, it's stupid.
I revised as following:

  1. Can listen and understand simple sentences
  2. Can listen and understand English at a slow speed
  3. Being able to say some simple sentences according to my thoughts
  4. Can listen and understand English at a average speed
  5. Can speak directly in English that what I want

Every year I set some personal goals, but most of them are not achieved as expected. still, I have learned something about how to make some progress by being self-driven.

I found most of the time, the main reason I failed to complete the goals is procrastination, especially for things with farther deadlines, more difficult things, and higher workload demands.

I tried some methods to beat procrastination. Once I plan to read a medium difficulty and a little thick professional book. It is difficult for me to stick to. Then I split the whole task into smaller ones, and when I complete a small task I reward myself, and for a staged task I give a bigger reward. The result is much better than the original state.

The second way is to develop a work rhythm that suits me, and don't overthink. Like doing certain things at certain times. Stick to a fixed learning rhythm until it becomes a routine habit. For me, this way is beneficial to overcome procrastination and resolve the anxiety of not rushing and expiring at the beginning of completing the goal into a series of fixed processes. It no longer needs to spend the mental energy to start and overcome.

The third way to overcome procrastination tactic is to use social pressure appropriately to force me to do things in time. Sometimes I find a friend who is also studying and gives me the pressure to urge me to do tasks. Sometimes we make a little bet, etc.

These 3 measures help me a lot to complete my goals from time to time.

You did a great job. The reasons for procrastination are really common. The methods to fight procrastination are effective, Thanks for sharing your action.
