Goals are meant to help us develop and improve ourselves. The goals that you set can be related to your hemophilia or to other parts of your life. </p><p>Here are some examples of hemophilia-related goals:</p><ul><li> In the next two weeks, I will learn to mix my own factor.</li><li>In the next month, I will learn to give myself infusions. </li><li>I want to feel comfortable talking about my hemophilia with others.</li><li> I will not let my hemophilia keep me from doing things I enjoy, like playing sports</li></ul><p>Try to set realistic goals. If we set goals we cannot achieve, it can be very frustrating. One way to help set achievable goals is to follow the acronym SMART: Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic, and Time appropriate.</p><h2>SMART</h2><ul><li> <strong>Specific</strong><br>Start with something small to work toward. It will make it easier to stay focused. </li><li> <strong>Measurable</strong><br>You should be able to recognize the progress you make and know when you have reached your goal.</li><li> <strong> Achievable</strong><br>Make sure your goal is one you can define an end to and know you can reach.</li><li> <strong> Realistic</strong><br>Consider the other aspects of your life and special circumstances you face. This will help you ensure your goal is practical for YOU. </li><li> <strong>Time appropriate</strong><br>Give yourself a reasonable amount of time to complete each goal. It is unlikely you will be good at something the first time you try it, so be patient with yourself.</li></ul><p>For each week, try and set one small goal for yourself. Throughout the program, try to work toward one long-term goal as well. These goals will help you reap the most benefit from the program by helping you:</p><ul><li>focus on what you want to learn during your transition</li><li>tailor the information provided in the modules to your specific needs.<br></li></ul><p>You can also share your goals with your personal health coach. Goals are a great way to help you stay on track.</p>https://assets.aboutkidshealth.ca/AKHAssets/hemophilia_setting_goals.jpg
