Wow! This article is very helpful. I agree: goals can be a wonderful way to refresh your activity program.
In my limited experience, I have found that it is helpful to have a person with whom you can discuss your goals. I visit with a friend who occasionally volunteers at my facility to get her feedback on my ideas/plans/goals. She will ask questions and offer suggestions that usually help make things go more smoothly. For example, if I say, "I'd like to encourage tenants to play more games," she might respond with, "What kind of games? How often will they play? Are the games self-directed?" This helps me to understand that my goal is a good one, but it is too broad and difficult to reach without further refinement.
(Not the best example, but you get what I mean).
