I know things can seem a bit overwhelming when you’re out of school, there are no more grades, and all of a sudden people are talking about five-year plans when it feels like you don’t know what’s happening in five weeks. But we’ve got you. It's time to set goals for yourself!

When I was a kid, I wanted to be a spy. The midnight phone calls. The cool gadgets. The cool missions. But I grew up. I changed. And I'm living out those dreams on a slightly different path. Now I'm a full-time digital story-teller, which means late nights wrapping up projects, an expensive video camera, and some non-disclosure agreements. And I got here by setting small goals that were clear, doable and ambitious. I know things can seem a bit overwhelming when you're out of school. There are no more grades and all of a sudden people are talking about five-year plans when it feels like you don't know what's happening in five weeks. But we got you! So today, your mission - should you choose to accept it - is to learn how to set achievable goals. I'm Evelyn from the Internets and this is Crash Course Business: Soft Skills.

Let's face it, we all have dreams. And we all want to achieve them, no matter if they're big like, "I want to write an Oscar-winning screenplay", or small like, "I just want to finish this script right now". Looking toward the future is scary and muddled. Every little decision you make seems like it's really high stakes.
