Today in class someone brought up goal setting, asking, Who sets the goals? Who should set the goals?

One goal I set for myself today is to come to each class for the remainder of the semester with a main question, concern, praise, or note about each reading. I think this will give me more purpose during reading and in discussion. Hopefully, I wont have to search for something to say and to be so anxious about the pauses in conversation. And if what we end up talking about in class is not really connected to what I focused on that's okay. But I think reading with a slightly more of a purpose in mind might help me to bridge the gap between my thoughts while reading outside of class and our dialogue inside the classroom.
