Are You Setting Your Goals Properly?

Did you set any New Year’s Resolutions this year?

People creatively call them goals, objectives, strategies, turning over a new leaf, and drawing a line in the sand.  But just the same, the New Year seems like a good time to start afresh.

Setting goals is no doubt one of the best things you can do to make positive changes in your life.  But to ensure your success, you have to do it S-M-A-R-T.

S-M-A-R-T is an acronym to follow that will help you create goals that have more substance and a better chance of coming to fruition.

Setting S-M-A-R-T goals means to make them

  • Specific,
  • Measurable,
  • Attainable,
  • Realistic and
  • Timely.

You define them clearly with a realistic, yet challenging, quantifiable, achievable, and time bound action plan. Go back and look at your goals for 2013 and be sure to make them S-M-A-R-T.
