It might be a good idea to decide where you want to go and, based on that, to plan how to get there. We call this task analysis. Goals give direction to the actions of the thoughts, the planning and later to the evaluation of the learning process.
The example below is used at school level by a teacher in a school in Brussels. The teacher starts the lessons with a classroom discussion of the lesson objectives. This way, the result expectations become the belief about the probability with which the pupil will succeed in the task. The teacher pays attention to his or her own expectations, focuses in the classroom on the learning process and individual progress and points out the importance of commitment.
