DAPPs

No, this is not a dance move, so you won’t have to endure a picture of me attempting one.

DAPPS is an acronym describing mini-goals that you can set–either in the college setting and/or in your life outside of that setting–that will help you make progress toward a larger one. There’s been a lot of research done on this very question that has led to the DAPPS strategy. To draw on that dance metaphor, a DAPPS goal would be the dance move that’s part of a larger routine. Again, I’m not dancing here, so you can relax.

Here’s what the acronym stands for along with my DAPPS goal today.

  • D = Dated — By the end of the day on November 15…
  • A = Achievable — By the end of the day on November 15, I will…
  • P = Positive — By the end of the day on November 15, I will (aka, I can do this!)
  • P = Personal — By the end of the day on November 15, I will create handouts and complete a slideshow for the NWP conference tomorrow…
  • S = Specific — By the end of the day on November 15, I will create and copy 3 handouts and complete 1 slideshow for the NWP conference tomorrow.

That’s it! It’s actually a lot, but I’m confident I can do it. Here goes….
