Devan:
Okay listeners...
Peter:
What’s your new year’s resolution?
Devan:
And how will you make sure you succeed?
Peter:
Let us know your strategies in the comments! But...
Devan:
...A lot of people fall short... don’t they, Peter?
Peter:
They do. If you don’t have the blueprint for setting successful goals....
Devan:
... if you don’t know how to stick to your learning routines...
Peter:
...or stay motivated, listeners, your efforts will probably fall flat.
Devan:
Peter, so what is this “secret” blueprint for setting successful goals?
Peter:
Alright, if you want to know how I went from failing my goals years ago, to finally succeeding, and learning Japanese...
Devan:
Pay attention, because this is a GREAT lesson....
Peter:
...A few simple changes to my goal made a massive difference. In fact, I now apply these to every goal in life. Not just languages. Because they work so well.
Devan:
What kinds of changes?
Peter:
First, I set measurable goals. Devan, most people typically aim for a vague resolution like “This year, I’ll master Japanese or Chinese.”
Devan:
Yeah, or “This year, I’ll go to the gym”
Peter:
But vague goals are problematic. So I started aiming for smaller, more measurable goals, most importantly with deadlines. For example, for January 2018, if I’m learning a new language, my goal is to speak 1 minute of conversation. The deadline is January 31st, 2018.
Devan:
Just 1 minute? Oh, yeah, that definitely sounds manageable.
Peter:
That’s the point! You can’t lift hundreds of pounds on your first day at the gym...
Devan:
...and you can’t expect to be fluent on your first day or your first month.
Peter:
But you can start small and build up from there. For February, I’ll aim for 3 minutes. March will be 5. And these will add up so by the end of the year, I’ll reach 30 minutes of conversation.
Devan:
That makes a lot of sense.
Peter:
So. Listeners, start setting small, monthly goals with a deadline.
Devan:
Are there any other tips you can give to our listeners for 2018?
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.
Devan:
And that doesn’t just apply to language learning, but any goal you’re trying to achieve in life!
Peter:
Devan, it really works. So, listeners, take these tips and apply them right now.
Devan:
And once you do that, we challenge you to master a language in 2018.

Peter-


I totally agree that writing down goals works! That is why I’m asking, do you have a PDF of the Table of Contents of your lessons? (And an Index would be almost too much to hope for!)


I’ve subscribed to Japanese Pod101 since 2015, but I’m afraid my study has been somewhat sporadic, so a list of lessons ON PAPER that I could check off would be most helpful.


I’m an 80 year old who started studying Japanese a few years ago. Thanks to Jpod (and a few textbooks) I can now write simple letters to my daughter-in-law’s family in Japan. ありがとうございます!
