I have been doing alot of work over the last six weeks with goal setting and after a nice long brainstorm, it all came back to this question.. Are you SMART enough to do what you want?
I don’t mean in the terms of intelligence, I mean in terms of recognizing the five key factors to be successful in attaining a goal.
S- Specific- if you can’t state it in one sentence, its not specific enough
M- Measureable- if you can’t do able to see you gaining ground on the way to the goal, its not a good one.
A- Attainable- Can I physically achieve this goal, do I have the time and the willingness to get it done?
R- Realistic- Do I really want to do this? Don’t give yourself a goal to do something because I should
T- Timely- Time is a ticking so get it going. Only choose goals that are worth your valuable time.
Once I applied this to the many wacky ideas I have had over the last six weeks, I have narrowed it down to four new goals that I am super excited about.Google+
