After four days we were able to discuss what we have learned and what we will put into practice. Some students talked about putting the daily goal setting techniques into practice. In particular, some talked about breaking down their monthly goals into weekly goals and even further into daily goals. To a room filled with laughter, one student in particular said she was going to “work on her dissertation.” All along she had been working in a lab on her experiments; she had been waiting until the experiments were complete before she would start writing her dissertation. Others liked the goal setting at the end of the day and said that they will implement that strategy as well. These students said they liked knowing where they left off the night before and in the morning they appreciated knowing exactly what to do without wasting time thinking about what to do. Another student said she will each lunch. She said she will eat lunch and enjoy it rather than reading during her lunch break. She will take lunch as the break that she is actually suppose to take.
