Setting goals in both professional and personal areas of life is extremely important. Both short-term and long-term goals are great ways to make sure we are always reaching our full potential. I learned about the SMART acronym for setting goals a few years ago and from that day forward I always ask myself is that a SMART goal? Whenever you want to set a goal in your life whether it be personal, professional, short-term, or long-term, ask yourself is it SMART.
S – Is it Specific?
M – Is it Measurable?
A – Is it Attainable?
R – Is it Realistic?
T- Does it have a Time frame?
If you can answer “yes” to these questions then you have a goal that you are sure to meet.
What keeps me going is goals. – Muhammad Ali
A winner is someone who recognizes his God-given talents, works his tail off to develop them into skills, and uses these skills to accomplish his goals. – Larry Bird
Have a great Thursday!
