A Formula for Motivation
VxE=M
• V = Values (how important something is to us)
• E = Expectation (how confident we are about
achieving it)
• M = Motivation (how motivated we are when you
multiple V and E)
6
Example of V x E = M
• Joe’s goal is to earn an “A”
in his English class
• Joe want’s to become a
published author, so his
goal has high value, a 10
• Joe always has done well
in writing course, so his
expectation of success is
also 10
• Joe’s formula:
VxE=M
10 x 10 = 100
• Clearly, his motivation is
high
• Dive Deeper: What if it
was a science class?
Science is not Joe’s
favorite subject.

How to Set a Goal Using DAPPS
• To be truly motivating, a goal needs 5 qualities
• “DAPPS” is an acronym:
– Dated
– Achievable
– Personal
– Positive
– Specific
10
Dated
•
•
•
•
Motivating goals have specific deadlines
Short term goals are a few months or less
Long term goals are usually more than a year
As your deadline approaches, your motivation
typically increases
• If you don’t meet your deadline, you have
opportunity to review and create a new plan
• Without a deadline, you could stretch your
pursuit of a goal and may not reach it
11
Achievable
• Motivating goals are challenging but realistic
• Example:
– Getting ready for a marathon:
• Practice one week before by running around the block
• Practice one year before with someone who has done it
• Set your limit… not too high and not too low
• Ask yourself: “Is achieving this goal at least 50%
believable to me?” Or “Can this be done?”
12
Personal
• Motivating goals are your
goals, not someone else’s
• Ask yourself if this goal
contribute to your personal
desire/dream
13
Positive
• Motivating goals focus your energy on what you
do want rather than on what you don’t want
• Translate negative goals into positive goals
– Negative: I’m not going to fail this class
– Positive: I’m going to earn at least a B in this class
– Negative: I will stop being late to classes
– Positive: I will arrive early to every class
– Negative: I will stop eating junk food
– Positive: I will start eating healthy food
14
Specific
• Motivating goals state outcomes in specific,
measurable terms
• Example
– Good: My goal is to do better this semester
– Better: I goal is to achieve a 3.5 GPA by Dec. 12, 20XX
– Good: My goal is to play harder on the basketball
court
– Better: My goal is to achieve at least 80% field goal by
Oct. 15, 20XX
