However, I have divided my goal setting process into two different segments, such as short term goals and long term goals (Bunderson and Boumgarden, 2016). According to me, my short term goals will be last for next 48 months. On the other hand, I would like to achieve my long term goals in the next 8-10 years. My short term goal is to complete my business management studies successfully with distinction grades. On the other hand, my long term goal will be to become a successful entrepreneur and owner of my own advertising company.

Self-reflection is very important for me. I always try to learn from different real life situations. I used to gain valuable knowledge from the surrounded happenings in my daily life and I reflect on those quite often to solve problems in daily life. First of all, it is essential for me to accept that I want to become a success

Moreover, this is also important for me to ensure adequate social recognition from colleagues, family members as well as community members. Lastly, this is also essential for me to consider some effective professional skill development process, which I think the good academic career will help me to do so.

Financial Decisions

Financial decisions are also important for me as I belong to a middle class family with moderate disposable income of family members. Hence, it is an important aspect for me to consider maintaining a sustainable academic career. I used to give coaching to the children in my community, which helps me to earn my pocket money. It generally helps me to continue with my studies effectively.
