I am going to be talking about goals today.
Why are goals important?
Goals are important because they help us to improve on our weaknesses. They also tell us exactly what we want to achieve.
To help us decide our goals we did a SWOT analysis. SWOT analysis is important for working out what your strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats are. It is also important so that you can identify your weaknesses and work to improve them.
