Peter: What’s your new year’s resolution?
Becky: And how will you make sure you succeed?
Peter: Let us know your strategies in the comments! But...
Becky: ...A lot of people fall short... don’t they, Peter?
Peter: They do. If you don’t have the blueprint for setting successful goals....
Becky: ... if you don’t know how to stick to your learning routines...
Peter: ...or stay motivated, listeners, your efforts will probably fall flat.
Becky: Peter, you did well with your 2016 resolution to learn German.
Peter: Becky, it could’ve been better. I set a revised goal to speak a full 20 minutes of pure German conversation. And I hit it. Listeners, if you want to know how I did it...
Becky: Pay attention, because this is a GREAT lesson....
Peter: it was just a few simple changes to my goal that made a massive difference. In fact, I now apply these to every goal I have because they work so well.
Becky: What kinds of changes?
Peter: First, measureable goals. Becky, most people typically aim for a vague resolution like “This year, I’ll master Japanese or Chinese.” or “This year, I’ll lose weight.” But vague goals are problematic. So I started aiming for smaller, more measurable goals, most importantly with deadlines. In my case, it was to “Speak 20 Minutes of German conversation by December 31st, 2016.”
Becky: Oh, that definitely sounds manageable. After all, you can’t expect to magically become fluent. You put a number on it.
Peter: Exactly. In my case, once I had the number, I started setting smaller, monthly goals that would add up to 20 minutes by the end of the December 2016.
Becky: Are there any other effective tips you can give to our listeners for 2017?
Peter: Listeners, write down a small, measurable goal, set a deadline, and put it somewhere you’ll see it every day. I know it sounds strange, but believe it or not, it really keeps you focused.
Becky: And that doesn’t just apply to language learning, but any goal you’re trying to achieve in life!
Peter: Becky, it really works. So, listeners, take these tips and apply them right now..

I have been using google Japanese Pod 101 for 6 months now and I truly feel that I am learning Japanese. Watashi wa Redguard Sandra Desu. Watashi wa Sensei desu. I would like to come to Tokyo to teach and indulge myself in the Nihon Culture that has fascinated me all my life. My New Years Japanese resolution is to use the guidance documentation more consistently so that my learning will be even more ingrained. Thank you!!!
