Creating Smart Goals

We are into the new year. Hopefully you have accessed your business goals this year and decided what you need to work on and change. Or created some New Years resolutions.  In order to have a higher chance of achieving these goals, there is a simple formula when writing them that will help keep you and your team on track.

S: Specific-Goals should be very specific. Top Achievement business site suggests that you should answer six questions when writing this type of goal.

                              *Who:      Who is involved?
                              *What:     What do I want to accomplish?
                              *Where:    Identify a location.
                              *When:     Establish a time frame.
                              *Which:    Identify requirements and constraints.
                              *Why:      Specific reasons, purpose or benefits of accomplishing the goal.

M: Measurable-if you cannot measure when you achieve your goal, you won't know when you have achieved it or what you are working for.

A: Attainable-Goals can be attainable if you plan the right steps in order to achieve it. Once you map out a plan, then it becomes clear to you on how to achieve the goal you have been working towards.

R: Realistic- Goals should be realistic. However, you are the only one that can decide what is realistic to you and how hard you are willing to work to achieve that goal. 

T: Time- You should have a time frame in which you want to achieve your goal. This will help you keep you on track and keep you moving forward towards your goal when you are feeling less then motivated.

Your New Years Resolutions do not have to be thrown to the waste side. With a little preparation and smart planning you can achieve everything you need to achieve this year.
