What is a S.M.A.R.T goal?
S.M.A.R.T Goals is a method of goal setting that allows for structure and aids in the ease of understanding of personal goals. This is the most effective way of goal setting, being able to plan and layout exact steps needed to achieve that specific goal.
What exactly do you want to achieve? Be very specific in answering; Who, What, Where, When, Why.
Being specific helps to realise what goal we want to achieve and starts to give an understanding of the steps that will be needed to achieve it.
What can be used to measure the outcome of the goal?
Think of the actual physical evidence that will be shown once the goal is achieved. This makes it easier to measure the outcome of the goal, once the physical element has been reached.
An example could be actually drinking eight cups of water a day which is a factor that is physically measurable.
Is this goal actually possible to achieve? Is it realistic?
Being a goal that you actually want in life helps to make it easier to achieve, being sure it does not impact your priorities in a negative way. Strategic planning may be necessary to avoid any impact on current life priorities. Making sure the goal can realistically coincide with current life obligations is important, so the goal can actually be achieved.
Is this goal something that you actually want in your life? What is the purpose of this goal?
Making sure it is a goal that you truly want in your life is very important, making it much easier to actually to achieve. Receiving further training could be used to increase relativity making this goal easier to fully achieve.
When can this goal be accomplished in a reasonable timeframe?
Making a reasonable plan helps to give structure to the goal which aids in strengthening encouragement. Having specific deadlines can give the motivation to actually fulfil the goal the given time frame.
Implementing S.M.A.R.T goals in our lives can dramatically help us in achieving our hopes and dreams. Goal setting can be extremely difficult, however, when we follow the S.M.A.R.T goals it can be a much easier and not as overwhelming to complete.
