Always remember to add a reference page. Your reference page should contain all the sources used in your paper. When using information other than common knowledge, you must document it. Only common knowledge or your original ideas do not require documentation.
Setting and Achieving Goals
To properly set goals you need to identify the difference between long and short term educational and career goals. Long term goals are set through a time period of over six months. Short term goals are a time period of anywhere between a few hours to a couple months. Short term goals help you achieve your long term goals.
To reach goals you have to have determination. There is always a chance that while trying to reach your goals you will come across an obstacle. It is important to have determination and to put in a lot of effort. You have to have a strong desire to want to accomplish your goals to actually succeed.

The goal would start by taking steps towards earning a degree, and then it would head towards getting your career.
