Would you travel from Seattle to L.A. without a map or any prior preparation? Would you hop in your car, turn the key, and expect to arrive at your destination without having done any research? Would you embark on a journey without making any preparations? Obviously not. If you want to achieve your goals, you’ll need a strategy. Make your goals more than a wish list to increase your chances of achieving them. Make a strategy for SMART goals. You must plan and prepare in order to have a successful trip and arrive at your destination. The same may be said for your goals.
Create categories to help you arrange your goals. Personal, Career, Education, Family, Health/Fitness, Financial, and Self Improvement are examples of categories. After that, make a list of your objectives in each category! Make your goals S.M.A.R.T. while setting them!
S stands for Specific, M stands for Measurable, A for Attainable, R is for Relevant and T for Time Frame.
