The solution below should get you started. In this particular task, you are being asked to put together a worksheet following Locke's Smart Goal Setting theory with a focus on becoming a soccer coach. How should you complete this? Essentially, you just need to reflect upon yourself - about your goals, how you'd know you are going in the direction you wish to go. This is personal as it is your choice. As long as you can chart out your goals, then you would be able to complete the task comprehensively. Below, I have shown you an example about how this can be completed. This is only a sample - your personal situation should reflect in your completed answer (i.e. the skills you already possess). You can also use the listed resources to further explore the topic.
