Goals are used to either guide a plan to fruition

 Goals are used to either guide a plan to fruition or to direct a course of actions towards a future aim. Goals need to be specific and measurable so that you can know if you are making progress towards completing the goal. Vague goals or ones that are too general, will likely not lead to the results you seek. 

 List one personal SMART goal and one academic/professional SMART goal you would like to work on in order to gain success in your future career plans. Describe the resources you need in order to meet your goals.
