Did you create some New Year’s resolutions?
If so, have you thought about taking them to the next level with SMART goals?
What are SMART goals for your personal development?
The objective to setting SMART goals is to keep your goal, or project moving forward. It helps with being accountable and organized in the timing and targets your end result of accomplishing what you set out to accomplish.
When we apply SMART steps, they are no longer resolutions but SMART goals. They have structure and can be tracked, measured and implemented to be a new habit.
Let’s break it down:
Specific- should answer all the W’s
Who is involved
What do you want to accomplish/ what do you think is possible
Where will you complete it
When do you want to achieve it
Why are you doing this
Measurable. Have an indicator for the process to pinpoint precisely
Achievable. Specifically, how to do it. Push yourself out of your comfort zone.
Relevant. What results are possible?
Timely. Target date and time. Set the deadline.
Now you have your goals mapped out, it’s time to make it happen.
Get inspired to change your life, one step at a time.
