At the beginning of the year, I thought of the term skills and abilities as ‘a natural ability born and possessed by an individual’.

This is due to the fact that a short term goal is a goal, which is a desired result expected to due at the end of the year, whereas, a long term goal is an expected result which is due in the long term. Since the completion of my short term goal action plan, I have gained success on my first short term goal of “building up habits to complete all homework on time”. Accomplishing this goal has allowed me to complete all major assignments on time, as well as, it has allowed me to perform my daily duties at home more efficiently and effectively such as looking after m brothers. Completion of the goal setting task has also led me to success of my short term goal of “achieve my provisional 1 license”. Accomplishing this goal has allowed me to drive my car independently. At this instant, I am able to pick up my friends and drive with them to school. I am looking forward to achieve my third short term goal in the mid of January
