Reflecting on the Past

Before embarking on the journey of setting new goals, it's essential to reflect on the past year. What milestones did you achieve? What challenges did you overcome? Taking stock of your NDIS journey can provide valuable insights and help you identify areas for growth in the coming year.


Celebrate Achievements

Celebrate your victories, no matter how big or small. Whether you reached a personal milestone, gained new skills, or established stronger connections within your community, acknowledging your achievements boosts confidence and sets a positive tone for goal-setting.

 


SMART goals

Setting SMART Goals

When outlining your goals for 2024, consider the SMART criteria – Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, and Time-bound. Specific goals provide clarity, measurable goals allow for progress tracking, achievable goals are realistic, relevant goals align with your aspirations, and time-bound goals establish a timeline for accomplishment.

 


Health and Well-being Goals

Prioritise your physical and mental well-being by incorporating health-related goals into your NDIS plan. This might include engaging in regular exercise, adopting a healthier diet, or exploring activities that promote relaxation and stress relief.

 

Skill Development Objectives

Identify skills you want to develop or enhance in the coming year. Whether it's improving communication skills, learning a new hobby, or gaining vocational training, setting skill development goals contributes to personal growth and increased independence.


Community Engagement Targets

Set goals that involve active participation in your community. This could involve joining clubs, attending community events, or volunteering. Connecting with others fosters a sense of belonging and enriches your overall NDIS experience.

 

Technology Integration Goals

Explore how technology can support your goals. Whether it's utilising assistive technologies or learning new digital skills, integrating technology can enhance accessibility and open up new possibilities for communication, learning, and productivity.

 

Regular Plan Reviews

As you set your goals for 2024, remember that the NDIS plan is a dynamic document. Schedule regular plan reviews to ensure your goals align with your evolving needs and aspirations. This flexibility ensures that your NDIS journey remains responsive and tailored to your individual requirements.
