What is your current skill level? What skills do you believe you will require being successful?

Details: In the final week of your orientation course, you were asked to produce an assignment involving your personal goals for your chosen program. In this assignment, you will build and extend your learning by setting SMART goals and integrating self-leadership into your goal setting. According to Fowler, Blanchard, and Hawkins in Self-leadership and the One Minute Manager, a self-leader is a person who “can take the initiative to get what they need to be successful…”
Write, in 500-750 words, three relevant personal, educational, or professional goals for yourself (one each). Make sure they follow the concepts of SMART goals. Identify your developmental level for each of these goals and explain why you think you are a D1, D2, D3 or D4 for each of these goals. In crafting your response, consider the following:
1. What is your current skill level? What skills do you believe you will require being successful? What job requirements do you believe represent your greatest challenge?
2. Who will you require to help you and how will you secure their help? For example, if your program has some higher level math or statistics (e.g., accounting or finance) do you expect that you will require additional help? If so, what can you start doing now to help secure that help in advance?
Prepare this assignment according to the APA guidelines found in the APA Style Guide, located in the Student Success Center. An abstract is not required.
My personal goal- Open a non-profit organization where I can help third world countries deal with poverty
Educational goal- Complete my MBA and Phd
Professional- Work as a manager at an immigration office for homeland security.
Here is an explanation of what SMART goal is:
SMART goals are:
• Specific: Research has shown that goals must be specific in order to generate motivated activity.
• Measureable (motivating): Goals must be measurable. It follows that if a goal is measurable, it must also be trackable. This is to say, one can keep up with progress over time.
• Achievable (attainable): In alignment with expectancy theory, goals must be achievable in the mind of the person for whom they are intended in order for the goals to generate motivated behavior.
• Realistic (relevant): Goals set must be realistic. One way of thinking about this is in the setting of goals during an up year versus a down year.
• Trackable: This is connected to measureable goals. To serve as motivators, goals must be structured so they can be tracked along some measure of time, distance, or other meaningful metric.
