After reading the short article and watching the videos on Self-Motivation, I hope you are feeling motivated!  When one feels self-motivated, it’s a good time to reflect on one’s long-term goals/dreams.

Take some time to reflect on a long-term goal of yours, professional or personal.  Think about the steps you envision taking to achieve this goal.

Draw/design a picture, diagram, or map of your long-term goal and the steps you plan to take to reach it.  Write a paragraph that describes your artwork.  (No word limit) Take a photo of your work and submit it here as a file upload.

  • Feel free to use any medium you like, for example, colored pencils, markers, electronic art software. 
  • Come back to this discussion forum by this Sunday.  View your classmates’ posts and write an encouraging response to two classmates.
