There are many ways to get to where you want to go. You can follow a map that will give you some possible routes to your destination, you can get someone to take your there, or you can just 'follow your nose' and hope that you will finally arrive where you need to be – that’s of course if you actually know WHERE you are going.
Study can be a bit like that too. You can plod along day by day without setting a goal - just doing what you have been given for homework, studying the night before for a test and getting your assignments finished on the day they are ready OR you can STRATEGICALLY plan how you are going to maximise your time and effort to get the best results possible and maybe enjoy the process because you are in control.
In other words you can set goals and objectives to target specific areas that need to be worked on to get the results you want.
This module is called ‘targeting your success’ because it is about being really clear on what your goals and objectives are, then developing a strategy to achieve those goals within a realistic timeframe.
