The S.M.A.R.T. concept is an excellent way to go about setting your personal goals for the new year!
S – Specific
Your goal should be as specific as possible and answer the questions: What is your goal? How often or how much? Where will it take place?
M – Measurable
How will you measure your goal? Measurement will give you specific feedback and hold you accountable.
A – Attainable
Goals should push you, but it is important that they are achievable. Are your goals attainable?
R – Realistic
Is your goal and timeframe realistic for the goal you have established?
T – Timely
Do you have a timeframe listed in your S.M.A.R.T. goal? This helps you to be accountable and helps in motivation.
