Having a goal can also help you come up with a plan of action. For example, if you want to get As and Bs on your next report card, there are certain things you need to do to achieve that goal. Making Good Choices In middle school, you have more freedom, and you get to make more of your own choices and decisions. But with freedom and independence comes responsibility. Think about who you are and what you want to achieve in school and in life. Make choices and decisions that are right for you.
