SMART goals are specific.  They are detailed in nature.  They are clear and easy to follow.

SMART goals are measurable.  You can place a measurement on them.  For example, if I want to lose weight, which I very much do, I set the pounds that I would like to lose.

SMART goals are attainable.  They are high goals but totally within reach.  Yes, you will have to work for them, but you can reach them!

R=Relevant

SMART goals are relevant.  They are important to your life and your goals in life.  They make sense in your corner of the universe.

T=Time bound

SMART goals are time bound.  They have a set deadline.  For example, you may have a SMART goal to meet in the next month or quarter or year.  You decide the time.

Questions to ask yourself:

  • What are my goals?

  • Do my goals align with SMART goals?

  • Am I ready to reach for my goals?

 

The more we focus on our goals, the more successful we will be.  I use SMART goals in my day to day life, in helping my kids to excel in their lives, and in training leaders in the workplace.  These goals are definitely multi-purpose.  May we all meet our goals!

All the best,

Christy
