Dear Sekolah Harapan Bangsa Family,
Happy New Year 2022!
Time flies really fast….
It has been almost 2 years that we are in a pandemic situation. Lots of plans and goals
from previous years’ resolutions that might have failed to achieve since the Covid-19
pandemic hit. Yet, it’s not the end of the road.
New year means 365 new blanks of paper, ready to be filled with new ideas, plans,
and goals. It is the time when everyone thinks about New Year’s resolutions and how
they can have a fresh start. 2022 surely is a great time to start over and begin anew.
How will you plan your 2022? What are your goals?
Here are some practical ways to write down your 2022 resolutions:
- Your goals should be smart — and SMART. That’s an acronym for specific,
measurable, achievable, relevant and time-bound.
Specific: Your goal should be clear and specific, otherwise you won’t be able
to focus your efforts or feel truly motivated to achieve it. When drafting your
goal, try to answer the five “W” questions.
Measurable: Your goal must have criteria or indicator for measuring progress.
Be sure to make portfolios, write the progress on your journal or take pictures,
so you can track your progress.
Achievable: Your goal needs to be realistic and attainable to be successful. It
may stretch your abilities but still remain possible. Try to identify previously
overlooked opportunities or resources that can bring you closer to it.
Relevant: Your goal must be realistic, so that the goal can be realistically
achieved given the available resources and time.
Time-bound: Your goal must have a start and finish date. Having a target date
will keep you focus and stay motivated in pursuing them.
- Write them big
As you walk through 2022, the days, weeks, months may have you waving
away from goals. Writing down your goals in a place you see them all the time
will serve as a useful reminder.
Celebrate every small bit of progress you make in achieving the goal.
Appreciate and applause yourself. Every small progress does matter. Focus on
these small wins so you can make gradual progress.

With the New Year comes hope and a promise. And yes, the best is yet to come
