Today’s Word: purposeful

January 9, 2018   =========

☆  purposeful  目的をもった


This word is similar to yesterday’s. If you take purposeful action, you have a definite aim, and a strong desire to achieve that aim. The opposite of this is “aimless” and obviously you don’t want to be taking aimless action towards your goals, right?

Thinking about your English goals for 2018, how can you be more purposeful about those goals? Like I suggested yesterday, can you set an intention to study each week. In other words, decide when and how long you will study – and of course, it’s a good idea to decide in advance exactly what you will study. If you do these things, your English study will be much more purposeful and effective, don’t you agree?
