Hello Everyone, as you are moving through 2021, I wanted to share excerpts from a video I released last week on the Smart Goal Principle. SMART stands for specific, measurable, achievable, relevant, and timely.
Statistics show that many people will create new year’s resolutions in 2021, but by February, the resolutions will be forgotten. The Smart goal principle will allow you to clearly communicate, document, and monitor, exactly what you want to achieve this year.
The first thing you want to do, is to make sure your goals are specific. A specific goal answers the question of who, what, where, when, and why.
The second step requires you to measure your goal, thus a measurable goal allows you to track your progress and measure your success.
The third step in the process is to identify goals that are achievable. An achievable goal helps you determine if the goal is within your reach.
The fourth step in the process, requires you to create relevant goals. Relevant goals connect to your larger objectives in life. The goals are usually stepping stones to something larger you are trying to achieve.
Finally, your goals must be timely. A timely goal has a deadline attached to it. When you set a time limit on your goals, you can monitor your progress and stay on track for completing the goal.
By using the smart goal principle, you can construct goals that support your career, health, finances, relationships, and your personal growth this year. This formula will also ensure that you create effective goals that produce the desired results.
As you prepare for 2021, set good goals and strategies for yourself. Take what you learned in 2020 and use it in 2021. With a little determination and perseverance, your success is guaranteed.
