S.M.A.R.T. Goals

🌟 S.M.A.R.T. is an acronym that stands for: Specific, Measurable, Actionable, Realistic, Timely.

🌟 SPECIFIC – Your goal needs to be spelled out very precisely and you also need to have a reason WHY behind your goal…some benefit or emotional attachment that will keep you focused.

🌟 MEASURABLE – This is where being honest and keeping records of your goals comes into play, as well as taking a time to sit down and go over what you’ve worked towards, say on a monthly basis.

🌟 ACTIONABLE– Goals should also be achievable or you will quickly get frustrated. Be accurate about the time it takes to reach a goal, and what actions it takes to get there. Stretch yourself, but don’t make things so unattainable that you’ll never get there and then feel like a “failure.”

🌟 REALISTIC – Your goal should also be relevant to your life’s vision and match your values. There’s no point in making or achieving goals that have no relevance to your long-term life goals. You could instead use that time to reach goals that get you one step closer to actually reaching your life goals. So always ask yourself, if the goal is relevant to your life goals.

🌟 TIME BOUND If you don’t set a time limit and you can’t track what is happening, your goal will be hard to quantified or show as achieved. Journaling helps you with this.
