Last week I gave reasons why written goals are so much more effective than no goals or unwritten goals. This week I’d like to introduce you to ‘WHY SMART” goals. Apply these parameters to your goals and you’ll be much more likely to achieve them..
W – write your goals
H – harmonious with your overall plan
Y – yours and yours alone
S – specific so you can achieve them
M – measurable so you know when they’ve been achieved
A – attainable, realistic coming from your starting point
R – realistically high, let’s make it a stretch or what’s the point
T – target dated and time trackable
If you’d like a sure fire way to gain victory over the goal achievement process, give me a call. I’ll help you lay out a format to accomplish one of your goals at no charge.
