A little more on each letter:
S: The S stands for “specific.” Whenever you are setting a goal, remember that the more specific you are, the more likely you are to achieve your goal.
M: The M stands for “measurable.” Set a time, distance or way to track your progress. Establish how you will measure your goal and your progress. Writing it down and post it around this helps to put an idea or a goal into action. One way to measure your progress is to track your goal on a calendar (See our download).
A: The A stands for “achievable.” To ensure you are setting a goal that is achievable, it is important to develop the necessary attitude and determination that you can do this. Remember to set yourself up for success. Build an environment around yourself to ensure you meet your goals. How can you prioritize this goal? Is this goal something that can be realized now or in the future?
R: The R stands for “realistic.” You’ve probably heard the saying, “Shoot for the moon; even if you miss it, you’ll land upon the stars.” While this may be true, it is also important to put things into perspective. Are you ready are you to take the necessary steps to achieve this goal? Are you willing are you to put forth the effort to making it happen? Score those on a scale from 1-10.
T: The T stands for “timely.” How often do you set goals and then, all of a sudden, days, weeks or even months have passed and you have made no progress? Timely or “tied to a deadline” is an important part of the goal-setting process to make sure you’re on target. If you don’t set a realistic time frame, chances are you won’t make much progress. Whether you start with focusing on the day or the week, remember to start small.
