Activity 6.2

Activity 6.2 Thinking about my goals: factors that might help or hinder me

Timing: We suggest spending around 20 minutes on this activity.

Go to Activity 6.2 of your Reflection Log. Once you have completed the activity, make sure you save the document again.

Or use this document [Tip: hold Ctrl and click a link to open it in a new tab. (Hide tip)]   to fill in a table listing your goals and the factors that may help or hinder you in achieving them.

You will need the notes you made for Activity 6.1 about your goals. Write these in the first box; then list the factors that will help you and those that might give you difficulties as you try to achieve your goals.

In the first column you could include, for example, whether you:

  • are well organised
  • have time available
  • communicate well
  • have enthusiasm.

In the second column, as well as your caring responsibilities you might include:

  • financial issues
  • time constraints
  • transport difficulties
  • qualification gaps or no qualifications.
