3.2.5 Plan how these targets will be met
You may be anxious to get on with achieving your targets but think first before you plunge in. In setting targets, think about how they will be achieved by identifying action points and deadlines, prioritising tasks and identifying resources and support from others. Include opportunities to discuss ideas/work with others and build in time to receive feedback and reflect on it. Planning how to achieve your targets involves all of the functions that take place before you start on the actual task. Time spent will pay off in the longer term. Plan and identify deadlines you need to meet and when you might need access to particular resources. At this stage it is also a good idea to think about when and how you can get feedback on your progress and give yourself time to make use of it. There may be times that are particularly busy – try to identify these and work around them.
Make a start at producing a plan of action and identify how you can develop your skills as part of your study or work.
